I was searching through the blog ‘Slowfit‘ and came across the diet that is called the ‘No S Diet’. I was blown away by:
1. How easy it is
2. How practical it is
3. It’s honest and real!…finally!
So, here’s what I’ve discovered about the No S Diet!
There are just three rules and one exception:
- No Snacks
- No Sweets
- No Seconds
Except (sometimes) on days that start with “S”
GENUIS! It’s so true though…it’s the ‘snacks’ ‘sweets’ and ‘seconds’ which pack on the weight. I don’t binge on greenbeans..I binge of cake, crackers, seconds (it was so good I need to eat more). IT IS SO TRUE. If I binged on greenbeans I wouldn’t be where I was, am at times.
I think that clench to this is the ‘sometimes’ rule which gives people the ability to indulge…SOMETIMES.
Saturday, Sunday and “Special” days. Special days include (your) national and (your) religious and (your) close family’s and friend’s birthdays. My apologies to atheists and non-native English speakers. A lean and hungry look becomes you.
Basically the idea is that sugar ladden foods are what you should stay away from. I interpert is naturally occuring sugar is ok…not cookies/cakes/etc. A little sugar never killed anyone..but a lot has.
So..what about fat?
But I also think that much (if not most) of the fat people consume is in the form of snack foods (chips, crisps, popcorn, etc.) and sweets (candy bars, ice cream, pop tarts, Capt’n Crunch, cake, etc.), which are restricted by the No S Diet (these also tend to be the worst kinds of fat). So while the No S diet does not address fat explicitly, it does so as a kind of side effect.
Snacking? Humm interesting information on snacking that I have never heard of before
historically speaking, snacking is a very recent eating behavior. No one did it to any degree worth mentioning until very recently – when we promptly started getting fat. According to an analysis of USDA food consumption data by David Cutler at Harvard University, 90 percent of the increase in calorie consumption in men in the United States since 1977 has come from between-meal eating. For women, it’s 112 percent — calories from meals have actually gone down.
Honestly, it makes sense!
