As a recovering glutton I have a long history of loving the all-you-can-eats. Absolutely true that quality varies wildly, whether it's an "ethnic" establishment or "American" (translated as lots and lots of meats and sweets). We have a special place in our hearts as well as our stomachs for one part...

Wonderful, wonderful post, Oola...you inspire me b/c I hope that as I continue establishing the vanilla No S habit my overeating-related health issues will continue to improve while enjoying that wonderful side effect of continuing my weight loss. I've decided that any tweaking will be done by adjus...

My situation is a little different, seeing as I am applying No S to managing my T2 diabetes so my food choices are VERY important. I am at home now; the last 10 yrs I worked I did 12-hr nights (and barely lived to tell the tale) so no having to get up early for work and eat breakfast quickly. I have...

My attitude toward sugar comes from the perspective of at least 45 yrs of unstable blood sugars now expressing themselves as T2 diabetes. So, even my S-day Sweets are made w/ sugar substitutes and eaten in relatively small amounts b/c very much ordinary sugar at all (or white carbs like white bread ...

I haven't deliberately planned to have one Sweet and one Snack on my S days but that's how it's worked out. I've been a little under the weather for the past few days so blessedly little appetite as long as I have my good big breakfast sometime late morning (we're night owls--habit from 10 yrs of wo...

Have to stay away from candy or else blood sugar will skyrocket--goes up too much even w/ no-sugar-added types plus those cause GI problems. Since No S I have actually forgotten that my husband has had a bag of Lindor truffles over by where he sits in the living room--not interested. I made a no-sug...

Mods: Vanilla seems to work best; may have to make last 3rd meal smaller than the other 2 for medical reasons but is work in progress. First feeding later in day (noonish-1 pm) works best; husband is fixated on dinner at about 6 pm so have to work around that. My Sweets are done w/ sugar substitutes...

My food choices are framed by my diabetes and elevated cholesterol as well as my needing to lose my second 50 lbs. I don't have to hustle off to work every morning so I almost always eat breakfast and lunch at home. My normal IDD for breakfast is about 2/3 cup of egg substitute scrambled in the micr...

Never Being an Idiot

For some of us w/ diet-related illnesses being an idiot (which I took to mean gross overindulgence on an S day) is always a terrible choice. I want to keep my blood sugars within a certain range and get my cholesterol and long-battled blood pressure back down to normal; idiocy is a great barrier bet...

Just starting out on No S but it makes SO much sense, even in the context of chronic illness. Learning and applying the vanilla version before I even think about progressing to marble or Neapolitan; seems to me that a lot of the tutti-frutti versions that I've been reading about above would actually...

Additional No S?

Not meaning to step on Reinhard's or anyone else's toes; but I thought of a slightly different way to express "Don't Be an Idiot" that really is applicable at any feeding--No Stuffing. Eat until you are satisfied and STOP. I have eaten way past satisfaction innumerable times as part of many years of...

Will be starting a mix of recreational and transportation Bike Rangering when the weather warms up. Would prefer to walk but severe pain from ruined feet prevents it; really miss the hiking I used to do. In the meantime I am using a pedaler; can read or watch TV while I crank. So far so good.

Low smoking

Have to admit that I was fascinated by your explanation of Low Smoking. Took courage to admit that you actually enjoy it and that there is an alternative to the black-and-white, all yes or all no thinking that only allows for addiction or abstinence. As a Respiratory Therapist for the last 12 yrs of...

New to No S so have a lot to learn. Will also be starting out using the dumbbells, seeing as I already have them, and biking rather than walking d/t painfully ruined feet (bike has been tuned up and is ready to go; will be using indoor pedaled until weather warms up). Feeling VERY optimistic.
