Heard on Campus: Barbara Rolls at the Forum

November 16, 2009

"There's no doubt that in the current environment it is very difficult to eat in reasonable amounts. You can use portion size to get people to eat more low-calorie foods. Calories really are the critical element of weight management... Using strategies to modify calorie density and portion size helps with weight control and weight loss."

-- Barbara Rolls, professor of nutrition and biobehavioral health and director of the Laboratory for the Study of Human Ingestive Behavior, speaking Monday (Nov. 16) on the subject of "Feeling Full on Fewer Calories," as part of the Penn State Forum. Rolls's clinically tested Volumetrics plan advocates eating more good low-calorie foods to increase satisfaction while reducing feeling hungry. She is the author of five books including "Thirst," "The Volumetrics Weight-Control Plan," "Feel Full on Fewer Calories" and "The Volumetrics Eating Plan."
