I have been doing the No S diet for about 5 months and I love it more and more every week! I have lost about 8 pounds and tweaked a bunch of bad habits into good ones that are easy and pleasurable to do.
Here are a few of the things I think are making the biggest impact on my weight-
1)Not snacking during the weekdays- it makes me realize how often I was eating before! Not snacking has easily cut out 300-400 calories each day, and I almost never feel hungry between meals because I am eating 3 full meals of real full-fat food that tastes great.
2) Not drinking as much beer/wine as I was- I have one drink a night at home now instead of the two drinks I was having before. I still have two or three drinks if I am out with friends, but I think a big part of me losing weight is just replacing one of the glasses of wine I would have had with dinner with a tasty herbal ice tea or just water. I still enjoy hitting the sauce, but I am doing it a bit less then before.
3) MOVING more! I started out doing 10 minutes of weight lifting or kickboxing every weekday morning, but that has gotten boring, so i have started taking a 20 minute walk with my husband every weekday. It is nice to be outside now, but I bet I will go back to doing videos when the weather gets foul.
I am going to sign out now, as I have had a super busy day. Time to get my beauty sleep! Just wanted to tell all you Sparkies how much I am digging No S.
High fives all around!
