Actually... :) As one of those people who's "well into obesity" (trust me, I'm not 'into it' at all ;)), I'm going to take a slightly different view. I reckon people disappear after having lots of "S days gone wild" because they can't get shot of their diet-head mentality. The guilt does them in. Pu...

Re: lily x

There is no magic. I was 54 when I found No S around Christmas 2010. I had 70 lbs. to lose to achieve a normal BMI. I was also very discouraged with how I let myself go. I started immediately even though I had doubts that it would work. I was very strict with the rules. I tried to add some healthie...

I have a problem with commitment. I need help!

Hello :) I first found No S back in September 2011. Read the website, bought the book, raved about it to my friends as being the sanest, most doable approach to weight management I'd ever seen... ...and then got impatient. Didn't lose much weight. Went searching for a faster diet. Couldn't follow th...

Hi Skelton Oh, I am so familiar with what you're saying here! Diets don't work. If they did, all the famous diet companies wouldn't exist. People would lose the weight and keep it off and there wouldn't be enough people walking through the doors of a local club for it to be viable. Yet we get sucked...

I've been reading this thread with interest. I definitely have trouble with S days gone wild - they're probably the reason I gave up on 'No S' the first time around.
