Help reach your goals
Eat to your heart's content!
Yes, you can eat.
It's true. With the Volumetrics® Approach from Jenny Craig, you can eat bigger portions that have the same calories and nutritional value as less-filling meals. Jenny Craig teaches that losing weight is about moderation, not deprivation. So you won't have to give up your favorite foods or eat tiny portions.
The Volumetrics® Approach is based on the research of Barbara Rolls, PhD, professor of nutritional sciences at Pennsylvania State University.
- It is a science-based eating approach for weight loss and lifelong weight management.
- It's designed to help control hunger and enhance satisfaction, while managing calories to lose weight.
- It promotes feelings of fullness and helps you stay on track to reach your weight loss goals.
How does it work?
Volumetrics® is a set of techniques for feeling full on fewer calories. The key is choosing foods rich in water, fiber and protein and lower in fat. For example, mixing non-starchy vegetables, such as tomatoes, broccoli and peppers, into your pasta dish will lower the calorie density and enlarge your portions. Selecting lean meats over higher-fat meats helps to lower the calorie density of your meals because there is less fat and more protein in the lean cuts, which leads to fewer calories for an equal portion size. And, drinking two cups of fat-free milk for the same calories as one cup of whole milk will keep you feeling satisfied.
