Default The Drinking Man's Diet and No S Diet

The Drinking Man's Diet (1962), the "Grand Daddy of Low Carb Diets": 60 carbs a day. Developed by Gardner Jameson and an Agnes Fay Morgan formerly of the University of California. This is a small, but informative, booklet you can still pick up on Amazon. Apparently the US Air Force (according to Jameson) was using low carb pre this "book" to keep pilots trim.

The No S Diet (2008) by Reinhard Engels. No S started as just a one page website with a discussion board. No Snacks, Sweets or Seconds: Except for Days that Start With S.

I used the No S diet for 2 months in 2010 (I was highly motivated, I was heading to the Grand Cayman...). I lost 22 pounds.

I know many strict followers of low carb the No S seems to be to "loose" but I am amazed when I follow it, how just following its rules, I trim down rather quickly.

My biggest "flaw" over the last year was not following any structure, and sitting around and not doing any exercise except Isometrics.

Anyway, I thought I would add these two little known "gems" to the semi-low carb list.

I love the theory of the No S Diet. It's the closest to common sense of any diet out there. But I've never had any luck with it. My general truth about diets is that people tend to push the limits of what is not explicitly forbidden. So I end out eating three junk food meals a day (but with no sugar). Grease and refined carbs are not a good combination.

The Drinking Man's Diet is the first low-carb diet book I ever read/plan I ever tried, probably about 40 years ago. I love its simplicity. Used a little pocket sized gram counter I bought at the supermarket checkout line. Just never stuck with low carb back then because at the core I was conditioned to believe it was unhealthy. Flash forward 4-5 decades and it still holds up well. I have the book on Kindle, it's short and sweet, and re-read it from time to time.
