Welcome to the No S Diet group. Our founder didn't want to call it a diet in the title of his book, but the publisher insisted. It really is just a way to manage intake in our food-rich environment. Weight loss is NOT predictable on it, but it just feels so good to feel freer from the bonds of too-frequent eating, especially of sweets.
No S seems to work best for those who haven't tried much else or those who are absolutely sick of the two big alternatives: counting calories meticulously or swearing off a food group. Both are abandoned every day as being unsustainable by the many. And often with a lot of guilt and resentment that can undermine our incentive to eat for our best interests.
We;ve had a bit of a drop off of activity here for a bit. I don't mind recommending that if you want more company, consider becoming a member (free) at nosdiet.com. I'm there, too.
Welcome to our Chair Exercise Team. You have made the right choice to become a part of our team and from my experience I can say that you will be greatly benefited here. Help in the form of our leaders. Wish you all the Best.
