What is The Diet Denominator?

The Diet Denominator: Fill Your Tank for Less is a unique new diet plan based on sound science but designed for your hectic lifestyle. This book will provide you with a simple and easy way to learn how to evaluate food options at home, in the grocery store, and even while eating at fast food restaurants so that you can consume fewer calories while choosing foods that you enjoy.

The Diet Denominator: Fill Your Tank for Less is an energy density (volumetrics) diet plan with an exciting new twist that makes this plan practical and easy to incorporate into your everyday routine. With The Diet Denominator, it is not the amount of food that you eat, but the energy density of the foods that you choose that will enable you to achieve your weight loss or maintenance goals. As a result, with this plan, you can eat the same – or even more – food without gaining weight. The secret is consuming fewer calories while eating foods that make you feel full (discussed in the chapter on satiety).

Thus, with this diet, there are no more fancy diets, special meals, taking potentially unsafe diet pills, or depriving yourself of all the food choices you desire. If you are an adult, parent, adolescent, or teen, this book is sure to help you or a loved one learn how to make informed food choices and become a part of your everyday life because it is easy to follow, implement, and apply no matter what your lifestyle.

This book is designed with you, the dieter, in mind. Importantly, this book is written at a level that is easy to understand while containing bonus sections titled Did you know?, Diet Denominator facts, Take home messages, and Want to learn more? ideal for the more advanced reader or for those that want a deeper understanding of the material. This makes it easy for you to distill what you really need to learn from what you will want to learn. Before you are introduced to The Diet Denominator, let’s start by introducing you to why there is such a need for a completely unique diet plan.

The Diet Denominator is a fascinating new diet book that comes with an online diet tool used to calculate the energy density of any food item with nutrition information available.

The basis of energy density diet plans is that foods vary in their caloric content and this variability can be utilized so that diet goers can consume fewer calories resulting in weight loss over time


Energy density is a simple principle that deals with the amount of food energy in a given amount of food


The energy density of foods can be measured in the number of calories in a given food item per unit of weight (or mass) in grams


One key to The Diet Denominator is that you are able to select food items that are energy lean, thus contain fewer calories, allowing you to eat foods that you desire so long as they are energy lean.
