I have been No S-ing for nearly a year, and have lost about 45 lbs. No S has been brilliant for me. I gave up conventional dieting years ago, because I could lose a lot of weight but would always put it all (and more) back on again.

No S avoids the pitfall of having to do things perfectly. I can choose the foods I like to eat, and am never very far from an s-day. “I can have chocolate at the weekend” is far more liveable with than, “When I reach my perfect weight, I can have some chocolate”.

The bulletin board has been a great support. It’s very reassuring to see the helpful and sympathetic advice, and to see that other people are dealing with the same problems. I always get hungry in the late afternoons on N days, and reading the comments on the bulletin boards helps me stay on track.

Thank you, Reinhard. Your practical and witty plan has made a big difference to me, and I believe that I will be No S-ing for life.

Congratulations! That's quite an accomplishment. I love it when people manage to lose even more weight than I did on No-s.

Thank you for taking the time to post this testimonial. I'll post this to the main testimonials page as soon as I get a minute later today (just back from vacation and scrambling to catch up on work stuff).

Best of luck going forward and I hope you'll continue to keep us posted,

Reinhard

Thank you both. throwbak42, your kind comments made my weekend!

Like all of us, I have good days and bad days. One wonderful thing about No S is that when I fell off the plan for longer than Reinhard recommends over Christmas and the New Year, I was able to get back on the plan again. The initial habit-setting difficult bit took two weeks this time, which is a useful thing to have found out.

With conventional diets, the requirement to do it perfectly, and the guilt when I inevitably failed, meant that I didn't manage to get back on track after a failure. For me, this makes No S uniquely liveable with as a way of eating for life.

I have the zeal of a convert these days! Reinhard, how about a bulk discount when your book is published for those zealots among us who will want to hand out copies to friends?

Wow-what an achievement!! Congratulations! I love to hear testimonials, especially ones like yours, that show longterm success!

It gives me hope that I can do it too-I have a lot to lose, about 65 lbs, II know it will take awhile, but it will be worth it! Thanks for the encouraging words-I agree, very inspiring!
