No S Diet

I have been looking at this weight loss plan and think I give it a try.

No sweets
No seconds
Days off that start with S (Saturday, Sunday and Special days)

Also I am reading The Thin Commandments and will be mixing that into the No S Diet.



I gave the No S Diet a 21 try and I gained 2 pounds. I must need more regimentation! So back to counting calories FOREVER!

Which just made me notice that no one has posted here in over 21 days! Where is everyone?

I wondered about this. Where does portion control fit into it? And fats?


I too gave this a try Joyce when you mentioned it, and it is working! I am losing weight,.... finally. But, I am doing it the way they recommend: no snacks, no sweets, no seconds. On Saturday and Sunday I add one sweet each day. But I still do not snack or have seconds even on Saturday and Sunday.

Beesley, the portion control is the " no seconds" part. You are supposed to put a normal sized portion on your plate and no seconds.

This is really working and I do not feel at all deprived or that I am dieting.

I wonder if it would work for me if I counted my calories along with it? But then that was the beauty of the whole idea.

Calorie counting for me is the only consistently effective method I have found. I still struggle after two years of maintenance with my portion control and once I stop counting calories (or become more leniant), I go down a slippery slope and end up bingeing. I know that there are other methods and each person is so different with their food needs, routine, and lifestyle. I struggle with it still, and I don't have any good ideas to suggest besides the annoying calorie number counting... :(

Hi Smile Lisa,

I have found counting calories so difficult and time consuming. Is there an easy calorie counter or book available that is VERY user friendly?

I will look at the S diet as well.

Keep a list of your favorite foods and their calorie count to make it a little faster. That also helps you stick to your portions. I like

    Advice Welcome

    I'm returning from a head injury/stroke.  My dogs took it pretty bad.  My older boy, (he's Lab x Shepherd) got very depressed.  He started urinating in the house.  All tests have been okay, urine, bladder, liver.  He seems to be improving since I've come home, but the vet told me it could just be old age. He told me I could give him pills to stop the accidents?????  Thanks for listening!

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
