I find it interesting that nobody here has mentioned cold cuts. I myself LOVE a good turkey sandwich, but the problem is that I am grossed out by store-bought cold cuts if they are more than 2-3 days old (weird?), so I almost see it as more economical to buy a sandwich at subway or something if I'm ...

LUNCH!

So, lunch is insignificant. To me, anyway. Breakfast is my favorite, and I love love love to plan out an elaborate dinner for myself. Lunch, however, is smack in the middle of the day when I'm not feeling particularly motivated or creative, and don't want to spend more money to get takeout. So I'm c...

Hello everyone! Some of you probably remember me. I've followed No-S off and on for the past few years, and eventually went on to lose over 30lbs not following a specific plan, just watching myself and trying not to go overboard. I guess you could say that following No-S made me what Reinhard likes ...

But not because I couldn't stick to the plan...but because I was HUNGRY. I either need to increase the size of my meals, or eat more frequently, because this isn't working.

I guess I still have some contemplating to do...

For some reason, I've been second guessing No-S recently. Because of this, I decided to use the last two days to experiment a little bit.
