I'm thinking of doing smaller plates for 1-2 meals a day while still doing Vanilla No-S. What do you do to tweak the plan to work for you?

Hi k1dub! Smile

My mod was/is to eat three meals/plates a day of any food--no restrictions. Instead of weekend "S" days, I simply eat this way seven days a week. I got the idea for this mod from NoS member "3-0-7 girl." Smile

The only mod I have needed is no snacking at all, even on S days. This has helped my keep my S days reasonably well under control. I do still have a tendency to go a bit crazy at mealtimes on S days, I allow myself sweets and seconds and sometimes eat mindlessly- I have come to the conclusion I need this release though. Its only 2 days a week and somehow by Monday I am back into N days with no problem.
Edit - I am definitely a vanilla No Ser so maybe I don't fit the criteria, oops!

My only mod is to allow fruit. When I have fruit with a meal I don't virtual plate it, I just have however much I want directly after the meal. I also allow myself to eat fruit between meals without calling it a red day (although I don't do this very rarely and try very hard to stick to only eating fruit with meals).

I do 4 days where I eat 2 plates a day only (Mon-Thurs, my work days). I'm still not losing! It's a work in progress - I might adopt the idea of not snacking on S days.

Why not start a daily check in to give members an idea of your meals, S-days and activities? Do you have a sedentary job, etc? In my case, losing wt. is helped with walking regularly, but everyone is different.

I would also agree with the previous poster. How about having a daily check in where u write down what your eating at meals. That way some posters can guide you if needed. They r a very supportive bunch!!

I have quite a few mods mostly because No S has been my default for a while. I only eat two meals + coffee with coconut milk every day—even on S days and I don't snack. Even on S day I try to keep my sugar consumption very low (preferably none at all). 90% of my meals are Whole 30/paleo because I feel excellent eating that way and the health results are too good to give up. This may look like a diet to other people but I've naturally made my way here and feel really good about it, especially now that the weight is coming off consistently.

I sometimes "trade" a weekend day for a weekday NWS day if there is nothing going on, on the weekend, but I'm having a social event during the week. These "trades" work for me in a way that "floating S days" did not!

My main mod is that I've decided to stick to three meals a day on S days. I've been doing this for nearly 3 months. Doing 3 meals every day has made getting the habit much easier.

Actually, I like the 3 meal S day idea. Did you see increased losses from it?

Before I started 3 meals a day on No S, I was having a period of disordered eating again during which I put back the weight I had lost on previous months of Nos. So going to 3 meals allowed me to get my eating back in order, stop putting on weight, and start losing slowly.
