Welcome to The No S Diet Team Amanda!

The No S Diet is a common sense, uncomplicated way of living and eating that you can do every day for the rest of your life; true lifestyle change (not really a diet). It is great grandma's way of eating. And permanent freedom from dieting, weighing, measuring, counting, tracking, and obsession.

There are 3 rules and 1 exception to the No S Diet: no Sweets, no Snacks, no Seconds; except, only Sometimes, on S days (S days are Special days, Saturdays, and Sundays). We do not binge on weekends; we still re-learn and we still practice moderation on S days, the key word being "Sometimes"; we only allow exceptions to the three S'es Sometimes, not all the time, on S days.

We practice baby steps emoticon emoticon instead of perfectionism, to get there. It is amazing to re-learn moderation, to remember that hey!, moderation actually feels good!!, and to get off the diet roller coaster. For me, the No S Diet stopped emotional binge eating and overeating in general due to it's built-in portion control and calorie control. It also killed my sugar addiction, and it did something totally unexpected that I thought I'd have to battle the rest of my life: it ended food obsession. What an unexpected gift that was!

The threads contain the info as does The No S Diet website, www.nosdiet.com. So please stop by all the threads and dive right in, if you haven't already. Welcome! And if you joined the team while I was on SparkBreak to move, double welcome!! Carol

Unfortunately, college campuses are one of the worst places for promoting healthy attitudes towards eating and body image. Try not to bond with other girls over dieting and body dissatisfaction, even though it's rampant. But you don't have to make a big deal about it, either. You don't have to get down on people for it. Just try to change the subject. There really is so much more to life than this preoccupation. Try to find people who exercise, dance, or play sports for fun. Get involved in some kind of service activity, even if only for a short time each week or month. (This has been shown to promote happiness, and we can use all we can get.) Eat regular meals as often as possible. When you find yourself dwelling on eating and body issues, try to change the subject in your mind, too. Okay, enough motherly advice!

Keep up with us. emoticon
