After several days on the "No Seconds" rule, my weight suddenly decided this morning to plunge to 3.5 lbs below my target weight for the day. I've no idea why - but one's weight never behaves as predictably as one would like. Anyway that means the "No Seconds" rule comes off and I am back to eating what I like, when I like and in what quantities I like. With Christmas getting closer and closer I am quite happy about being a few pounds under my target weight.
By the way my definition of "No Seconds" is "no second helpings", a much easier rule to keep than the "No S Diet" definition of only one plate of food during a meal.
So far I have been doing my composite diet for a week and a half during which I have lost 5 lbs. The only change I have made to my normal eating habits is to avoid eating second helpings for a few days. This must be about the easiest diet I have ever been on.
Full details of the diet I am following can be found here.
