11 Years

Post by Over43 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 5:22 pm

I just noticed it has been 11 years since I first signed up for the No S Diet. The fellow who referred me (I believe), is still a member at www.davedraper.com. That is the forum that he referred me from.

What can I say, or advice can I give over the last 11 years? Well when I am spot on with No S I lose weight. There was my 2010 drive to lose weight for my Caribbean trip. I started No S-ing in biblical proportions at the beginning of March that year and by the end of May had lost 25 lbs. I was also riding an Airdyne 40 minutes, 3 days a week, but those rides do not account for 25 lbs. being lost. Regardless, I was very fit.

Three times I have done the "21 Day Challenge". (I think that is what it was called.) All three times I have lost 10 pounds in each of those three weeks.

What makes No S special? Well, I have lost weight on meals that included Hamburger Helper, Spam, Stouffer's frozen lasagna, chili dogs (My wife has made me quit eating those. :oops: ) a Coke, fried chicken, etc. You name it, if I stick to 3 meals a day (without the snacks or sweets) I can lose weight.

It has been awhile since I have posted a lot, but I seem to be today. But, if you are new, or hesitant, just take the leap. Start with the next meal you eat and take it from there.

Thank you Over43! It's inspiring to hear about your results. I have just started, and I'm sure there will be a few bumps to get over along the way.

When you have a Coke, is it only on S days, or is it part of a meal? Does it count as a sweet?

Sometimes I will have a 12 oz. can as part of a meal. Just my thing.

Thanks for answering my question. I like that I can have a bit of soda as part of a meal, it makes things more doable.
