Hi CarrieAnn, I'll tell you my experience in case it might help you. I have found that when I know I will have a long stretch between meals, I need to eat protein. When I have a substantial portion of high-quality protein (maybe 5 oz) at a meal, I can last much longer. Even if the meal is healthy ve...

20 Lbs.-about 1 per week

YIPEEE!! I just reached the 20 lb. weight-loss mark. I checked on the member list to see how long it has been. I joined in June, so the loss is about 1 lb. per week, or a teensy bit more. I think of all the diets, exercise programs, personal trainers, and general misery I went through over so many y...

...Rumba: I'm glad the no-grain meals work for you, but they sound a little daunting to me. I may try it for a couple of meals, but long-term doing w/o grain products would be very difficult for me... Hi Ariel, I think I didn't make myself clear. I don't eat that way all the time. I have pasta, bre...

doulachick, my suggestion: LEFTOVERS. It's my mainstay to give me variation from eggs. I deliberately usually cook extra of whatever protein I have for lunch or dinner, so I can have a piece of chicken or fish for breakfast the next day. I used to be a no-breakfast person. Then for a while I tried t...

Hey corey, I started out exactly the way you did, stuck strictly to the rules from day one. I'm now in about 5 weeks, and yes it has been easy the entire way, right from the first day. I hope it goes as well for you. Let us know how you do over the weekend. I was afraid I would pig out, but in fact ...

Just in case it might help you, I'll add my experience. It is easy for me to go 7 or 8 hours between meals if I make the meal a plateful of: high quality protein-a substantial serving (eggs, chicken, fish, beef, or pork.) plus complex carbohydrates in the form of vegetables and salads and optionally...

Golly, goops, what a scary experience with diet soda pop!! I often drink carbonated water, and sometimes I add a little bit of pomegranate juice. Use POM Wonderful brand, and you only need the tiniest little bit to flavor a big glass of fizzy water. (Maybe 1/2 to 1 ounce in a 16 oz glass of water.) ...

The World Does Not Have to Agree. No-S WORKS! (for us)

I'm noticing how often I encounter outside pressure to somehow modify the No-S diet--in two ways: 1. Eat frequent small meals to keep your metalobism up. It seems every personal trainer and fitness guru is singing that song. (Never mind that a couple of years ago it was some other song, and a couple...

Hi peetie, I don't really think in terms of ounces, I just go with what looks to my eye like "a serving." I emphasize protein more in the earlier meals, so for breakfast I may have a leftover fish fillet (the ones I buy I happen to know range from 4 to 6 oz) or else a couple of eggs plus some cheese...

Beth and peetie, I know it is different for each person, but just in case my experience will help, here it is: 1.

3-week report: Controls cravings like MAGIC

OK OK, before I'm accused of false advertising, I said CONTROL not ELIMINATE. Here's my experience at 3 weeks, and some thoughts on it. The No-S diet is very easy for me to follow. I do get cravings throughout the day, usually for something sweet, but they are easily dismissed by telling myself "I c...

Yup, Kevin, I'm starting off really easy and increasing veeerrrrry slowly. So far no major soreness. If anything, I'm being overcautious, but I'm one of those folks who see no virtue whatsoever in pain. At the dentist I heard the guy in the chair in the adjoining room declining novocaine, saying "I ...

I scanned the book (Mastering Leptin) at the bookstore (Borders) and find that number 5 is Cut Down on Carbohydrates. The book does talk about exercise in separate sections not part of the 5 lifestyle things. But instead of buying the book (about $eighteen*) I've bought an 8-lb sledgehammer (about $...
