Seriously Reinhart You need to get this information into a little, spritely book. You've got the beginning of the book on the website, could use testimonials from folks like me and Deb. A little nutrition background and some No S philosophy. This is your window of opportunity right now. People are s...

No S Update

Hi No S'ers: Just an update: I'm 2-1/2 weeks in and have lost 2-1/2 pounds, not a lot but in an effortless way. I've eaten real food, croissants twice for breakfast and even more-real food (chocolate cream pie and a French dip on Sat. and churros, yum) on S days. It's great. Discipline during the we...

I think a daily check-in thread would be great, but I didn't get the part about signing up. Re: No S. Last night my daughter, 13, and I had an impromptu dinner with another mom and her daughter (celebrating that the girls made their junior lifeguard trial swim—100 yards in 1 min., 55 secs.). Dessert...

Reporting In After 1st "S" Days

Hi there. I'm reporting in after my first S-day weekend. It was satisfying, but I actually ate more than normal. A cupcake, chocolate, movie popcorn, and some ice cream cake, but not over the top in portion sizes. I figure that I'll concentrate on establishing the habit of S, No S and then work fine...

Dear Deb,
Thanks for taking time to write back and for the support here on the board. I've been reading all the Posts to get an idea of how No S works for everyone.

Reinhard, What a charming and true reply. A strawberry tart with heavy cream (I confess I had to go to my Food Lovers Companion to decipher tarte aux fraises fraiches) sounds fabulous. You are right as I think about it. Usually I don't choose my treats, opportunity and inertia them for me. This week...

S Day Strategy

I'm finishing five days and it's been a breeze, mostly for me. I'm just heading into my first S days and am wondering if anyone has advice or a strategy they used. I plan to be extra vigilant the first three weeks, as is suggested here. I don't feel weak right now, but tempation has a way of swoopin...

Day 3 and Loving It

Hi. Just checking in on my third day, and so far, it's wonderful. There are a few times between meals when my body whines for food, but I'm in charge here. And I don't entertain the idea of snacking (except on an S day). Food I do eat tastes WONDERFUL. So much better, and I tend to plan meals a bit ...

Baby Steps toward New Habit

This is my first day, and I'm really excited too. I think Reinhardt has something big here. The whole idea of a No S habit resonated with me. I've been a calorie accountant, tried controlled gluttony via Atkins, et al, and just want to be moderate. It's the constant food decision-making that unbalan...
