10 ‘Volume Eating’ Tips To Speed up Weight Loss

Focus on Vegetables: Fill half your plate with non-starchy vegetables like leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, and bell peppers. These are high in fiber and water, which help you feel full.

Choose High-Water Content Fruits: Incorporate fruits like watermelon, strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit, which have high water content and are low in calories.

Incorporate Lean Proteins: Include lean protein sources like chicken breast, turkey, tofu, and legumes in your meals. Protein is satiating and helps maintain muscle mass while dieting.

Bulk Up Meals with Soups and Salads: Start meals with a broth-based soup or a large salad. Both are ways to consume a lot of volume without a lot of calories.

Use Airy Snacks: Opt for popcorn or rice cakes as snacks. These can provide a satisfying amount of crunch and volume without too many calories.

Choose Whole Grains Over Refined: Whole grains like quinoa, barley, and whole-wheat pasta have more fiber and will keep you fuller longer than their refined counterparts.

Prepare Vegetable Noodles or Rice: Swap out traditional pasta and rice with zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice to increase your meal's volume for few calories.

Hydrate Frequently: Sometimes thirst is mistaken for hunger. Drinking water regularly throughout the day can help prevent unnecessary snacking.

Use Spices and Herbs to Add Flavor Without Calories: Enhance the flavor of your voluminous meals with calorie-free spices and herbs instead of high-calorie sauces and dressings.

Practice Mindful Eating: Eat slowly and pay attention to your body's hunger cues. It takes time for the brain to register fullness, so eating slowly can help you consume fewer calories.
