Barbara Rolls Featured in Newsweek

March 19, 2007

Penn State nutritional sciences professor Barbara Rolls and her satiety research in the book "Volumetrics" are profiled in the March 19, 2007 issue of Newsweek. According to the article, "Volumetrics may be the most popular diet you've never heard of. It doesn't have the zing of The Zone or the image of bronzed beauties from South Beach. But it's been gaining currency with nutritionists and dieters alike for its simplicity and the fact that it's backed by recent peer-reviewed studies at a time when other diet plans have been losing favor." "The Volumetrics Eating Plan" is coming out in paperback at the end of April.
