if you really need some food in the mid afternoon, like that little veggie snack and milk, then have it... just don't randomly snack all day... many people include a very small fourth meal, instead of having three... the key is not to graze and mindlessly snack whenever you have the impulse to... go...

i think a bunch of people on here, including myself include friday evenings as part of the S days... i think keeping moderation in mind throughout the week, including S days is what your main focus should be...

well, i don't think you should obsess over numbers but i do think you should weigh just to see if your feelings actually match up with any remarkable gain or not... often i can eat a very salty meal and be very puffed up and gain anywhere between 3 and 4 lbs even in one day, but that often will go r...
