eating sensibly

Idcmp condensed his Nutrition course down to ten important
. You’ve probably heard some or all of them. Worth reading
again, in any case.

I also haven’t talked about the No S
in a while. I’ve been sort of half on it for a while, but was
on full-swing a while ago. Long story short, I’m down 30 lbs and just
bought a size 36 pair of jeans since all my 38s were falling off.
Heartily recommended for people wanting to implement iddy’s point 1
but who need a bit more (but not a lot more) structure to do it.

If you haven’t heard of it before, No S is simple: no sweets,
snacks or seconds except on days that start with S.
There’s a bunch of guidelines to make that easy documented on the
website, but that’s really all it is when it comes down to it. Mixing
that with the diet’s inventor’s other programs, Urban Ranger and Shovelglove, and you’ve got a diet change and both cardio and resistance workouts
ready to go.

The best part about it is that it’s sustainable — there are
almost certainly ways to lose weight faster, but eventually you have
to stop doing them (or you get sick of it and stop even though you
don’t want to); with No S you just make a slow lifestyle change, and
the treats you do get end up even better. I don’t waste my opportunities
for snacks or sweets on just anything now.

  1. Thanks for reminding me about No S. I think I’m going to try it.

    I’ve done calorie counting with great results, but the romance of accounting is gone. ;)
