Hi
Can you really have exactly what you want at your 3 meals? Being 12 weeks post hip op want to lose weight...no diet has ever worked due to be immobile ..I .do them exactly but when no success on scales after 8 weeks or so and club leaders said I was doing it perfectly and could offer no other advice I lost enthusiasm and I stopped ..what type of meals do you eat any advice would be appreciated.

Yes you can eat what you want but watch portion sizes!!

Also think about what you are eating, for health reasons you should aim to eat a good balanced diet. But no food groups have to be left out.

By default I use myplate's advice of filling up half the plate with fruit and veg (at the cafeteria at work for example). But I definitely think about what sounds good first. :)

It depends on what you want. No S cannot defy the laws of physics. If you are a small person and fill large plates with dense heavy food, it’s unlikely you’ll lose. I tend to have only one big meal a day. The others are pretty small And sometimes on weekends, I have only two or sometimes even just one meal because I eat richer food (more likely to eat out.) on a daily basis, I tend not to have a lot of SAD. (If I go through a phase of eating it, I do gain a few pounds.) This all evolved over time before and during No S.
Count plates, not calories. Three a day. 9 years & counting

Mar/13-24.9 Stayed at +/- 8-lb. for three years Sept/17 22.8 (but more fluctuation)
Mar/18 22.2

There is no S better than Vanilla No S.

I do two only one biggish meal a day, where what I eat is more nutrient dense, while the other two are more scarce. And I do the quadrants as well, actual or virtual.
I am now introducing as a rule that if I count to eat white starches in a meal, I'll have 1 tbsp of chia seeds or psyllim seeds in water before the meal (just to off-set the impact of the carbs).
And I have had since the beginning the rule of eating a small apple before every meal. Seems it helps with blood sugar and it's very beneficial for the liver, and I like apples.
