Seeking Diet Books

November 2, 2009

Ok, I’ve been slipping up in my healthy eating habits recently, and have regressed to unlimited snacking, junk food posing as meals, and nearly all-day soda consumption. With holiday eating looming just around the corner, I want to nip my bad habits in the bud and find out how to lose belly fat quickly so I can hit Thanksgiving and Christmas with a clear conscience.

I’m currently looking at a few different diet books to see which ones I could plausibly stick to. So far, I like the way the “No S Diet” sounds, mostly because of its simplicity. Here’s the whole premise: No snacks, no sweets, no seconds, except on days beginning with S (Saturday, Sunday, and special days).

The beauty of this system is that you don’t have to count calories, you aren’t limited to only carbs or only protein, you don’t have to eat special meals, etc. The author recognizes that most of the crap sugars we consume from snacks and sweets eventually end up as belly fat, so he seeks to eliminate daily consumption of potato chips and chocolate bars rather than, say, fried chicken dinners. Sure, he would prefer that you have grilled chicken breast instead, but the diet doesn’t absolutely depend on that happening.

Many people scoff at the mere notion of the No S Diet because it sounds too simple and therefore must not work. Well, whatever, I’m going to give it a try, starting today.
