July 5th. - 5th Day with NoS

Friday, July 05, 2013

OOlala convinced me to try out this NoS-thing.

No sweets, no snacks no seconds exept on days with S.

Sounds simple. I lurked around at the NoS-website and Forum and decided to do a modification.

I allow myself seconds. Seconds and Thirds, for one of my three daily meals.
Thats important for me.

This doesnt mean i´ll fill up my plate twice, it means going for the french way. know i live a about 300 yards from France. And eating the french way was always a bit of luxury for me. It needs me-time.

So, 1st dish is a salad (greens, reds, high-quality oils) or crudités. No much calories but volume to fill up.
2nd is a normal plate. Its strange not to watch and count calories for it. Its more strange to estimate the amount i will eat and put it on my plate. Thinking "i cannot refill it" i usually take too much. Ok, its a learning process.
3rd is dessert: either a small piece of cheese, a fruit or a bite of something sweet.

If this modification works, it would be great!

I could not hold this on 2 of 5 days. On Thursday i had a sandwich for breakfast and i wanted another one. So i had it and skipped lunch. With two sandwiches i really was not hungry.
On wednesday, a uncomfortibly warm day, i bought a bottle of soda while on the road. I was tricky thirsty and didnt want any water. So i counted those 450 calories from the soda as a complete meal and skipped one.

    I strongly suggest that you not skip any meals, even if you think you ate too much at the previous one. And serve yourself a generous amount to start. You don't HAVE to finish everything on your plate. Since you know two sandwiches wasn't enough for breakfast (for now), make two next time.

I think your mod for one meal a day sounds fine. That food would likely fit on one good-sized plate as well. It sounds exactly like what I put on my plates, without the one bite of something sweet, but hey, you're practically in France! But I do usually have a piece of fruit.

It IS a learning process and from the inside out as well as from the outside in. It took me a lot longer than most dieters want to get the amounts down and to have more moderate weekends, but it has paid off, as you know.

Tickled pink!

    Keep going. Dr. Beck says to GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN. I have to remember that.
