week 3 went, mostly with me sick, so made them S days - ha, sick also begins with s, so that works perfectly. They weren't too "s" but I just didn't want to have to worry about trying to eat enough at meals, or adding being hungry to my list of woes. I think I had an extra small snack each day. I ha...

People often say it is easier to replace a habit with a new habit than it is to get rid of a habit, so maybe the drinks need to be actively replaced rather than removed.

I just really like HabitCal

I just wanted to say that I like HabitCal. I have Coach.me on my phone to do a record of sucessful habits, but for some reason I just like HabitCal better? Weird isn't it!? I'm now using it to try and build up another basic habit other than NoS. I work part time in the afternoons, but am hoping for ...

W2:d5 and W3:d1 both success, although psychogically didn't feel very successful.

I have noticed that recently I am drinking* less; I'm not sure if somehow it is NoS or just a coincidence it has happened at the same time.

*as in drinking anything - water, tea - not talking about alcohol!

Thanks gingerpie (nice name!) I don't like things that take their own time - I want to be doing something to move them along. But, part of the beauty of the NoS diet is that you don't actually need to be worrying about it all the time. There's really only so much thinking you can do about it. W2:d4 ...

Wheras back in the day the advice for high cholesterol was to eat less of it, I am pretty sure now they have found that dietary cholesterol does not affect your blood cholesterol levels - i.e. cutting back on the cholesterol you eat doesn't really help. My Mum took part in a study looking at the eff...

W2:d3 was a... Success? Not entirely sure as it was confusing because at the Asian restaurant there was only a little bowl so you had to keep refilling, couldn't just fill up a plate... In any case, the rest of the day was good and I feel the general principles were upheld so I will count it. Today ...

Personally I can easily fluctuate 1kg in a week (a bit more than 2 lbs I believe) so I'm not taking too much notice of weight except over the long term. For me, my current plan is to follow the habit for 3-6 weeks and see how it goes, and then if I haven't lost any weight by the time I feel I have t...

W2:d2 (yesterday) was a SUCCESS. Nearly lost it for some chips, but prevailed. Today is going well so far, but it's the lunch to dinner stretch that's tough. We will be going out to dinner today to celebrate the fact that we've just passed the 9 hour mark for hours between sunrise and sunset (was ~8...

Currently I'm on the second day of week two. I spent week one increasing the amount of breakfast I eat in order to try and get through to lunch time. I now eat twice as much breakfast as before and that seems to work fairly well. I have also modified NoS to have a large snack/small meal between lunc...
