So glad to meet you! I hope we can help you actually change your diet, not be on a diet. I recently had a friend ask me if I was still doing this. I admitted that I've been failing at it since I went back to work full time, but that will be over soon, and I never considered that leaving it. Especially with regard to sweets only on S and pre-planned NWS days, I told her this is how I will eat forever, with mods as I get older and wiser. This means I do look at more data to decide what goes on my plate, but that's a separate issue to me.

diet mentality funk brought to this team... when I'm practicing healthy eating it is the no s diet - and when I'm off my game, all the calorie counting isn't making things better.... I discussed my diet funk with a member and she pointed out the easy weekday rules. Immediately I switched my way for No S - that's why I'm here, to throw in my support for this simpler way of doing things/meals.

My issues were with weekends. I am fine sticking to the M-F guidelines.

I had an inkling we might have met before. Sorry if the welcome repeated too much!

I wish there was a way to somehow just trick people into the habits of No S without their putting so much attention into it, more like they've gone to live in another country and are so busy that it isn't until a month or so later that they realize they're eating less and enjoying it. I think there's a subtle pressure put on the program, or maybe not subtle, to be looking either or weight loss or signs that things are changing. Believe me, I know what it's like to feel desperate for change, but I also know how easy it is for expectation to lead to a loss of faith. I don't know if that's where you're at, but I hope we can shepherd you through the tough times and celebrate the good ones.

Thank you for the welcome on my Spark Page.... maybe a fresh start is truly what I need. I have been here before under a different SparkPeople name.

I have been reading posts on the board for awhile now, but felt it was time to join again.

Yes, unless you have a lot of muscle or an especially high metabolism, you will have to keep your amounts low. But you can still enjoy what you do eat and have some very nice food. I really think slim societies eat a lot less food than Americans are told is necessary. I read once that average calorie intake in other countries was guessed at by calculating how much food was available, not by what people actually ate. That's nuts!

Gillian Riley has a free pdf online detailing what's wrong with IE. I think it CAN work but it would take as much energy, scrutiny, and guidance over time as a diet. Too narrow a focus for me.

Im only 5 ft tall, and I guess Im just assuming i need to eat 1200 or less a day. I think I came up with that because 1500 would cause me to gain, and I've lost weight at a normal pace at 1200 a day. I kind of figured i may actually gain a few pounds starting off. But I think my weight will find a happy place if I am being healthy. Two years ago I embraced the intuitive eating and health at every size movement and gained like 15 pounds in one month. It was scary and depressing. I want even going hog wild. I was eating junk, but not all day long.

I will go ahead and check out that other website. It looked pretty busy.

Thank you so much for helping me with all this! I really appreciate your help and support :)

Why are you figuring your calories?

There is no guarantee you will not gain a little weight since you have been eating so little. Unless you are very short, you will not likely be able to live a reasonable life on 1000 a day.

There might be other reasons to decrease your energy intake at times, but weight loss isn't the best one.

IF you want to normalize your relationship with food and find a way to live WITH it, not constantly fighting it, I do think it's a good idea to join nosdiet.com. There are more people there more consistently involved.

Do you think I should sign up on the other board as well?

Today is my day 1 of the n s d. I had my usual vegan shake but I also had a yogurt so I can stay fuller longer. I was curious and calculated my calories. It came out to 530!
Vegan powder: 170
Banana in the shake: 110
Yoplait yogurt: 150
Granola: 100

So, it is so easy for me to overeat. The amount of food looked small, but it was almost over half the calories I eat in a day! I don't see how I won't gain weight from this. Unless I eat pretty much all fruit and vegetables. This is very very scary for me!

It is a workable lifestyle but it doesn't mean there might not be hurdles. I'm glad to offer whatever help I can. (And there is quite a community on the original discussion board.)

Hello everyone! My name is Natalie. I have lost about 30 pounds since last November, but I wasn't losing it in a way that was sustainable for me. I recently got to 115 and realized that that weight wasnt going to be sustainable unless I changed what I was doing. I couldn't starve myself anymore, so now Im learning how to lose weight the health simple way.

Oolala was telling me a little about this, and after going to the website and reading a lot about it i feel like it's what I've been looking for. Whenever I come up with a new plan for eating i try to simplify it into only 4 or 5 rules, so this way of eating is perfect.

Its also brilliant because it addresses the psychological aspect of it, and deals with one thing at a time. Im very optimistic about this :) .

Thank you OOLALA for sharing with me :)
