SavvyV, I agree with all you've said. I think until we learn to satsify our cravings with God instead of food, we are just making the food behave. I don't know if you are familiar with it, but I have a book recommendation for you - Made To Crave, written by Lysa Terkeurst. I find that NoS works well...

You do it by following the rules you wrote above. Use your self-discipline muscle - it will get stronger the more you use it.

In the US, things that are plain are sometimes referred to as "vanilla". As in, "Her outfit is plain vanilla".

Vanilla NoS is NoS done without any modifications or changes.

In some cases, Detroit for example, it's not just better grocery stores, it's grocery stores.

To the detriment of our health, we are living in a food carnival.
This says it all, to me. Thank goodness NoS limits the eating episodes per day. We have too much - too many choices, too much availability, etc. No wonder most of us are overweight or obese!

She didn't state it as fact -- it was an opinion. I tend to agree with it -- especially the part that results will be slow. In addition, I think 1) having moderate habits, like No-S, may prevent some of these things from occurring, and 2) what we eat is part of the issue, too. That's my opinion. I ...
