I can relate, with the heartburn.😞 Some of my triggers are coffee (but I'm not ready to give up coffee yet), cooked tomatoes, overly large and fatty meals, citrus (especially orange juice), and eating too close to when I exercise. I try to limit the foods I listed, but I haven't changed my diet y...

What an interesting discussion! I can certainly relate to some of what has been shared! I feel better about myself when I consistently follow good behaviors, like those of No S.

Hi, Linda! 👋ðŸ»

I've been reading about your fasting experiment, and it sounds interesting! I can also sort of identify with having ongoing reflux, and I have figured out that going at least 4-6 hours between meals seems to help mine.
I will definitely keep following your check in!

I'm back again! I fell into a pattern of overeating at night again, and it didn't get me anywhere, except I've had increased heartburn, and I haven't lost any weight (although thankfully, I've been active enough that I haven't gained any weight, either). Today is Day 3 of recommitting to No S. Day 1...

Hello! Just a quick check in. I got off track during the rest of the Summer, because I was so busy with my kids' swimming lessons, and I played in a bunch of band concerts, but now that the kids are back in school, and concert season has slowed down, I'm ready to recommit to better eating. Over the ...

I'm just doing a quick check in. I'm actually doing okay with my eating! I have pretty much stopped overeating at night, which is HUGE for me. Lately, I've been trying to pay more attention to the portions on my plate, and to eating a little more intuitively, and it seems to be helping! I've also be...

Oolala, I think she was trying to eliminate most of the common triggers -- like Gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, etc... It's interesting that she didn't tell me to eliminate eggs or potatoes, but I'm not going to press it.😀 I have lost weight since starting this diet a couple of weeks ago, because...

Hello! I am back, and back on the wagon! My naturopath put me on a strict elimination diet 1.5 weeks ago, so I can't have coffee, gluten, dairy, sugar, soy, corn, flour, or alcohol. The diet is HARD, but in some ways, it has been easier to stick with 3 meals, and to not eat after dinner. I have 5.5 ...

Thank you, Rawcookie! Yes, rehearsals are in the evening, and they are generally pretty challenging (in a good way!), so I always work up an appetite. I will definitely stick with my plan of eating 4 meals on my Band days. My eating is going better. I'm at least eating a lot less at night, so it's a...

Just a quick check in. As a whole, my eating is going better. I'm actually starting to do a little meal prepping on Sundays, which makes it easier to 'grab and go,' when life gets really busy. The night time eating is still a big challenge, so i'll have to cut it out, except for on band nights, beca...

My eating hasn't been perfect the past few days, but with the exception of yesterday, which I would definitely call a fail (lots of snacking at night), I have done much better about either eating just a little at night, or not eating anything after dinner. I did try going without sweets for a few da...

I almost succeeded yesterday. I did have a bowl of Smart Pop lite popcorn after dinner, but that was it. Today is a new day. 😀

Oolala, I'm sure you're right, and I think I am finally at the point where I'm willing to break myself of this habit.

Hello! I've been doing okay on some fronts (eating 3 main meals and not snacking during the day), but I am really struggling with eating at night.

Hi. Good job on handling the teacher situation. I would have been upset, too. I hear you on the reflux. :( Mine has been flaring lately, so I'm trying to focus on eating slightly smaller meals with a little less fat, to see if it will help.
Good luck to you!

Hi, Linda,

I hope you're able to figure out how to fix your reflux. I've had a resurgence, as of late, so I may have to do some experimenting of my own. Good luck to you!

I'm still here, and I'm still somewhat following No S, in my own way. I find eating 3 meals (or sometimes 4 smaller meals) to be almost automatic for me now. Eating seconds has never been much of an issue, and I rarely snack. Eating sweets at night is still my biggest issue, at this point. For now, ...
