"Mnemonic" meaning something like "easy to remember because of its sound" . . . From a 43Things user I just happened onto nosdiet.com/
The "No S Diet": basically it's no snacks, no sugary foods, & no seconds, except (sometimes) on S days (Sat. & Sun. + "special days"--family birthdays & holidays)! Isn't that brilliant?
Of course "no snacks" contradicts what we're frequently advised here at SP (2-3 healthy snacks a day, or 6 small meals). But it's consonant with what my husband's doctor has urged on him, & with my own experience. If I'm snacking between meals, I nearly always end up eating more. I don't have blood sugar issues that would require me to snack, so it makes sense to just (for the most part) cut them out.
I really, really don't want to go back to food tracking, because it takes SO much time, especially now that we are cooking new, from-scratch foods at home a lot. Going by a simple, easily rememberable rule of thumb like this is much more doable.
Oh, & the No-S system does involve exercise. Read about it at the link if you're interested. The guy is hilarious, & he makes a lot of (common) sense.
I'm going to post separately about my life in general. Briefly!
