The Crazy Suburban Mom: The No S Diet...

The No S Diet...

The No S Diet is so simple. I have to try it... but could it work I keep thinking? On the other hand I keep thinking how could it not?

According to the web site:

The No S Diet, also known as the "Grandma Diet," the "Why Didn't I Think of that Diet," and the "No $ Diet" is a program of systematic moderation I invented for myself that I imagine might work for similarly minded people.

No funny science or calorie accounting involved, just a few simple and mnemonic tricks for giving your willpower the upper hand.

There are just three rules and one exception:

  • No Snacks
  • No Sweets
  • No Seconds

Except (sometimes) on days that start with "S"

That's it.

How could something this simple possibly work? Precisely because it's simple -- or rather, following the Einsteinian dictum, "as simple as possible, but not simpler." For all its folksy charm, there's a lot of serious, practical wisdom packed into those 14 words. Read on if you need more convincing...

So yes. That does make sense. I admit I lose track because of seconds... and in-between meal tastes and bites... And what is hunger anyway? Is it boredom? Or did I just see a commercial? Or am I tasting a recipe I'm working on?

A huge problem I have is breakfast. I don't normally eat it. Today I've decided to make a shake with light soy milk, no sugar chocolate instant breakfast (with splenda), a banana and a few frozen strawberries.

I will say it's pretty. And thick... and a whopping 14 grams of proteiny goodness in a 16 ounce plastic cup that I don't even have to wash.

It makes perfect sense doesn't it? There is a lot of info on the site that made me go DUH! Like how much more people snack...and as people began to snack more... they got fatter. Um, yeah. I ended up ordering the book from Amazon even though they said most of the info was on the site - the book was only $4.99. A bargain!
