Today is the day I have been following no S for one month. Did I lose weight.NO! Should I be surprised, NO! Having evaluated this past month, I had a...

Awful day today. Felt strong urge to eat marshmallows and gave in. Then decided it would be an S day today instead of Saturday ( tomorrow). So I basically ended up eating on and off all day. Felt uncomfortable and out of control. Technically it would be a red day but I convinced myself I shouldn't t...

I would like to ask if others can relate to this but I've noticed that as I don't have anything to follow with no S apart from a set structure-3 plates a day, I've been bored as I'm not reading literature on the diet or googling or calculating/ evaluating a specific diet. I've been bored... As I hav...

Hi MaggyMae!! Hope your well! I would like to join you in having a No S year, with no other diet involved! This year I also was chopping and changing plans.

S day for me today. I take Thursday and Saturdays.
I always look forward to an S day. Eating sweets but I'm always glad when the day ends and although I try to control the amount of sweet I eat I always fail. . This is something I can definately work towards over the coming weeks/ months.

21/12/16 green day as was yesterday. So many urges to eat Ferraro Rocher!! Several times I had the instant - I need to eat as I was anxious about little things. Kept thinking well I just can't eat sweet as its a N day and the urge passed very quickly. Previously I would convince myself to have just ...

Thanks for your detailed responses! Your advice does make sense however I stop being rationale the moment I start worrying about weight loss. The huge advantage I found both today and yesterday is I was 100% able to control urges to eat sweet food and therefore binge. This is the ONLY plan that has ...

Babybirds check in

Started 25th November. Had mostly green days so far. It's helped significantly with controlling emotional urge to eat. I've lost baby weight this year by following diet plans but was slowly putting the weight on again and it caused me to have uncontrollable binges. More so that usual. I've read the ...

I did WW for a short period of time. I bought the scales/ book/ app / ww yoghurt/ wraps. I spent a lot of time understanding the Plan and buying specific food. It was mentally very time consuming. I lost weight very quickly. 4 pounds in a week but it all came back on once I had stopped.

I do plan to add to the daily check in where I can track any progress I make if any. But I have a very demanding 11 month old so it's just finding the time.

Anxiety about not losing weight

Hi. I'm new to the no S plan and I've had 15 green days and 4 red so far. I've battled with binge eating since my teenage years. This plan has helped control binge urged significantly and I know it's not a quick fix plan for weight loss. However today I've been riddled with anxiety wondering if the ...

This forum is so wonderfully supportive. I'm not even active on social media but I felt it important to join and ask for help and I hope to support others too.

Feeling downhearted, new member and weight gain

Hi guys! I started the no S eating plan last month in November. I've had 10 green days so far and two red days which were PMT induced sugar cravings. I have had bulimia/ binge eating disorder since I was 13 and I'm now 34. This is the only plan which has made me control my eating and it so freeing n...
