Reinhard - can you do an everyday systems for dating?

Hi Reinhard, I've greatly benefited from your every day systems website, podcast, and discussion. I've been using a modified No S diet for a few years which has helped me effortlessly maintain a 30 lb weight loss (I'm only 5'4'' so that's saying something!). I've started doing shovelglove (results T...

Lost 30 lb!

Wanted to thank Reinhard for posting his thoughts about No S on the internet! Over the past year and a half I've maintained a 30 lb weight loss (I'm 5'4'' female, 126 lb down from ~ 156) after losing it over the prior year. While I did do intermittent fasting which probably resulted in most of the w...

Jenna's negative qualification post

Hi everyone, In order to combat the "what-the-hell effect" that is a big problem for me when I fail on NoS, I've decided to record my failures here as Reinhard suggests. I was doing really well on my first week and yesterday, for some reason, I just ate way too many chips...like a whole big bag. So ...

I think the reason was that the bag of popcorn was there, and I really didn't want to study.

Lesson learned: don't buy snacks or go to the library to study.

Tomorrow is another day!

I was trying to follow No S with just using Habit Cal, but I realized that I'm never going to get anywhere when I keep failing and my failures turn into "what the hell" "all or nothing" binge episodes. So I have decided to report my failures here so that I am held accountable!!!
