    Anyone use glucomannan powder? I use it in my protein drinks. I like volume but mostly prefer thick and dense.

    I interchange hanthan / guar gum and this. Similar results in finishes products, but this does not make be bloated. The other do, when I use too much.

    How about brownie batter? Mix your chocolate protein powder with almondmilk and add some jello. It’s heavenly.

    Volume is good. Make sure you're getting enough protein.

    I've read it helps maintain muscle mass while losing weight. Otherwise a body will pull from both fat and muscle reserves, which could include your heart (i mean it will pull from both regardless, but eating protein and strength training help prevent too much muscle loss). Im not talking crazy amounts of though. Just a basic amount at minimum. Good thing for anyone to keep in mind.

    I feel like I’m more likely to be low on fat when volume eating definitely not protein

    Each dinner was about 400 calories. Bone in center cut pork chop, my own brown sugar chili dry rub (keto friendly) and a low fat coleslaw.

    I think you missed the "volume" part of this thread :)

    This is my fairly high volume lunch. Could be more by increasing veggies and decreasing avocado etc.

    200g pumpkin
    150g capsicum
    150g eggplant
    50g red onion
    50g cottage cheese
    Can of tuna
    40g avocado
    20g relish

    About 380-400 calories

    Ok new volume food alert in my eyes. Bamboo shoots. Anyone cook with these before. Amazing for stretching out starches and starchier veg. 7vunvnrz7zqw.jpg

    Yes I love those too! And water chestnuts. Yum. Super duper low calorie also.

    I love this thread and thanks for a great reminder. I found that I love volume eating. I’m not vegan but a few years ago I added massive amounts of leafy greens while attempting to loose weight. I noticed that I lived for a full plate. It might be a metal trick I play by seeing that plate packed but it works. I have gotten away from that, as I don’t have access to the produce where I live now. I’m trying to learn to like the produce here more and add in this countries greens.
    I would say I love cabbage and apple salads .so yummy. Sometimes I add chicken and a soft cheese sometimes I add nuts and grapes.
    I also make green soup from kale, onions, Swiss chard. I makes eggs over any leftover veggie we have. Spinach, cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, squash, Brussels sprouts, green beans, tomatoes and chickpeas. I also eat a ton of seaweed. It’s so good for you.
    I going to try to make at least half my plate veggies! Also tofu where I live is the best I’ve ever had in my life so I’m enjoy that more often as a low calorie protein source.
