Since around November I have not really been following my no s-diet in the evenings. Breakfast and lunch go by without a hitch. No pangs for snacks. No craving for seconds.

The only thing I will say is that the first few weeks are not great. But after you've done it for a while, it becomes second nature and you don't even think about it. Then you look at the scales 2 months later and you're 6kg down...
