I'm hanging in there. 4 unsuccessful days in March. I'm not calorie counting as closely as I was before, so my loss is very slight, if at all. Time will tell. I'm trying not to make too many changes at once. For now, I'm focused on just following No-S. Anything more is just a plus. Happy April every...

I had a better week this time, after not doing so well. I can feel a difference when I eat better.

I wanted to make a note that I'm extra dedicated to NoS this upcoming week. My spouse is going to be on a business trip for a few days... and I really want to stick to things, and not eat a bunch of junk since I'll be home alone. I also have a habit of doing really well for a couple months, then dro...

Okay okay, I spoke too soon.
Get it together heliz! :oops:

NoS is going okay, but I've been having one more drink a night than I should be. I know that can escalate for me, if I'm not careful.
Staying focused. Being mindful.

FAILURE Oops, not the best last day of the month. Overall, I had 3 slip-ups for my first full month on the S-diet. Even with the slipups, I'm feeling a difference. I actually jogged some distance with my dog, up an incline. The increased walking is paying off. And my dog loves it too. I don't feel ...

Good For the past 3 weeks I've been sticking to 2 meals a day, and it seems to be working okay. It's natural for me since I'm rarely hungry in the morning, and I prefer to have a bigger meal at the end of the day. I figure that still fits into No-S, as long as I'm not snacking. Apparently this is a...

Anyone doing any youtube video logs about their S diet journey? I'm thinking of doing one, but I'm not sure yet.
I see a few older ones on youtube, but just curious if anyone here is currently doing one.

I still somewhat count calories, only because I'm trying to get a handle on what a good portion size looks like. But yeah, there is no way it's going to be a long-term sustainable thing. No-S does seem great for long-term. That's interesting that you feel pressure not to ruin it for others by not ea...

It is an interesting idea, but I put it in the fad category and definitely not long lasting.

This week has gone really well. SUCCESS I tend to skip breakfast, and just have coffee with a splash of milk. So far, that hasn't bothered me.

Anyone else not able to add an avatar? I see some people have them, but not many. So I'm probably not the only one.
I'm trying to add a .jpg. Its the right size, with the right file size.

I'm guessing it was probably discontinued by the owner.

Don't think so

Doesn't look like there is a way to change the default.
You can change it manually for the post you are currently looking at.

Go to the bottom of the page.
Look for "Display posts from previous".
Then select "All Posts", or however far back you want to go.
Then "Newest First"
