Volume Eating! You’ve heard about it, right? Well I’m here tonight, to break it down for you in simple terms.
Volume = a lot
Eating = food in mouth
Volume Eating = a lot of food in mouth
😂 essentially that’s it! Told you it’s simple.
Volume eating means choose foods you can get a lot of on your plate, vs a small serving. The majority of veggies and fruits are volume friendly, meaning you can eat a lot of them in comparison to dense foods like; oatmeal, pasta, rice, potatoes, bananas... These foods would be dense which means you get less quantity wise for the same macro count.
An example is here on my plate tonight, choosing all volume carbs. Blueberries, nectarines, zucchini, radicchio, portobello mushrooms. It basically allows you to eat more with the same amount of carb macros. Makes sense?
Often times, people will choose to eat volume heavy to be able to put more food on their plate, to get more veggies in, or to feel fuller. Other times, we’ll choose dense foods cause that what our body is asking for. I recommend switching it up.
Some nights you have tons of veggies and other nights you choose baked potatoes, some rice or an ice cream. There is no right or wrong, it’s simply about 1. How hungry you are 2. Getting your veggies in 3. Food variety 4. Satisfying what your body is asking for.
So next time you’re wondering if you’re volume eating or dense eating, stop and check out what’s on your plate.
