I've done ALL the diets and they've ALL worked(I lost weight). They all failed for the reasons previously outlined here. I have made the point before that the reason they work is because they all end up causing you to eat fewer calories and I never really bought the "science". I finally found this one(I can't believe I just now discovered it) that essentially provides a way to help me eat fewer calories without any of the bad science so I believe I'll be able to stick with it. We'll see!

Started Monday. Monday, Tues, Wed have been green days. So far so good today. Question

Day 4 is in the books. Green day although I took advantage of the fact that "quality" of food doesn't matter I still kept it to three - one plate meals. I'm down about 4 lbs but that is primarily because I started the day after father's day which was a major binge day for me. So far so good.

Finished my first week of N days and made it to S days successfully. I've done a lot of diets and I learned through those that 'cheat' days were critical to being able to continue on and also generally helped with plateaus. Since this isn't really a "diet" I'm having a bit of a struggle with letting go but I want to follow the habit building formula so off to get a donut...

My first S day worked out pretty well. Coincided with a friends birthday celebration and I could enjoy it without much thought. I still pretty much skipped snacking and my breakfast and lunch were N day compliant. I never did get that donut. Smile Dinner was part of the celebration and since it was an S day I didn't have to figure out if the multiple options would fit on a plate. So far this is the easiest "diet" I've ever followed and one I can actually envision sticking with. The biggest part that I think I have to look out for is not to expect that big initial weight loss. Most other diets cause a huge water loss in the first 10 days that "feels" like great progress even though it is an illusion.

Made it though my second S day without going too crazy. Enjoyed and happy to be back to N days for a few. Week 1 complete, down 3 lbs.

Success for my first N day coming off the weekend. Today will be an S day for my son's birthday dinner but I'll limit that to just a little dessert.

First "special" S day went well. Had normal breakfast and lunch, dinner was pizza but I kept it to one plate. Ice cream for celebratory dessert. All in all pretty happy I didn't go crazy.

Friday successful. Looking forward to a couple S days and still deciding how I'm going to treat my vacation this week.

Back from vacation. I marked all last week as red. I actually didn't do too badly and might even have had a few green days in there but I just didn't really keep track. Weight held steady, down about 3.5 lbs in 3 weeks. I'm going to mix in a little low(ish) carb this week to move the scale a bit. Essentially that means in addition to no sweets, I'll do no bread/flour.

3.5 lbs. in 3 weeks is great! And so is holding steady on vacation. Congrats!

Had a green week following my vacation week. Enjoyed my S days without being an "idiot". Very Happy

Down 1 more lb this week for 4.5 total in 4 weeks. Looking at the month ahead, I'm hopeful I can make the 21 day club. 7 down, 14 to go.

Green Monday, interestingly I generally have not been a huge snacker and the no snacking part of this has been no issue until this week. Having definite cravings to snack yesterday and today. I think its been the meals I've had so far. A little too heavy on the processed carb side and probably short on protein and fat. Have to pay closer attention to what I eat the rest of today and see if that knocks down the cravings.
