Re: Alison's Start to No S

Thanks for the encouragement. I tried the tea thing last night and it was helpful - I chose a fruity tea that tastes sweet - so it was a nice snack-like thing. I'm still hanging in there with no-s this week. The snacks after dinner are the only real hurdle - so I suppose that's good. It's been easy ...

Re: Alison's Start to No S

Yes - the stew is a favorite of mine - barley, red lentil, carrot, potato, tomato, cardamom, cinnamon, currants, parsley & lemon - it's hearty, but not gloopy (the spices, currants and lemon lift it up). Last night I was again tempted by chocolate - but made it through. I just have to keep choosing ...

Re: Alison's Start to No S

Thanks for the suggestions! Milk does seem like a good solution! Last night I had a pretty large dinner (but only one plate) and I was tempted by snacking after dinner, but I didn't! So - that's good. This morning (Day 13) so far so good. I have a busy day, but a nice lunch of leftovers packed to lo...

Alison's Start to No S

Hi all! I started the No S diet on Nov. 30th. So Nov 30 : Day 1 It was actually surprisingly easy - I suppose after the Thanksgiving holiday I was "over it" as far as eating a ton and snacks and sweets. So I did S-days for that first Sat and Sunday. (Days 1 & 2) Similarly, the first week was really ...
