 My daughter who is about to be 15 month on Dec 5th. She doesn't like the words 'no', 'there's no more (food or drinks)' or 'stop'. Is there anyway to have any kind of discipline for her to make her understand that she can't do certain things. I technically work 3 jobs for anyone to understand where I'm coming from.

Continue to use no, try redirecting her, ect. I can't think of anything else right now.

I agree with the re-directing her attention, although I understand what you're saying about how it is possible to lose patience. It sometimes happens to me when I'm trying to do something else, and my LO keeps doing something he's not supposed to. Whenever I really need to get something done, I set him up in the Pack n Play with some toys and let him entertain himself for a little bit. That usually (fingers crossed!) works.

MY GIRLS ARE A BIT OLDER BUT AROUND THAT AGE WHEN I WOULD TELL THEM NO OR WE ARE ALL OUT IF THEY CRIED I PUT THEM IN TIME OUT AND TOLD THEM WE DONT THROW FITS AND THEY COULD GET OFF THE COUCH WHEN THEY STOPPED THROWING THEIR FIT AND GOT DONE CRYING!! WELL NOW IF THEY ARE CRYING ALL I HAVE TO DO IS SAY " GET DONE" AND THEY WILL STOP THROWING THEIR LITTLE TIFFY!! I THINK IT IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER DONE IT SAVES SOOO MUCH DRAMA TIME......

My soon to be 3 year old daughter is a fiesty little one and she started on her "terrible twos" when she was a little over 18 months old.  Putting her in time out...a corner where there is nothing for her to do or stare out except for a white wall...or even in her room w/o toys or anything.  You gotta be consistent.  This stage will pass and she will continue to test you on how far she can get away with it. 

Also, taking away her favorite tv shows and/or toy that she is currently watching or playing is a good disciplinary action.  When it comes to food and other things, my husband and I firmly instill the "OK mommy" or "OK daddy."  Basically, whenever she starts throwing a fit or about to throw a fit when we say "no more" or "no" or "stop"....we tell her..."You don't tell me no.  I'm your mommy.  You say, 'OK, mommy.'  You don't get what you want by throwing a fit. Say "OK, mommy.""  And we kept doing that to her over and over again and now whenever she starts a fit...we give her our serious stare and she automatically says "OK mommy" and listens.  It teaches her that we are in control not her.

Oh, and when she starts having tantrums, we also instill "I don't understand whining.  Use your words.  Tell mommy or daddy what you want."  Consistency.  You'll start sounding like a broken record but it does work.  Be patient and firm.  And remember, this will pass.  Being so young, start off with putting her in a corner.  (This will tell her that talking back will get her no where but the corner.)  Then to the "Ok mommy"s and/or "no whining" thing.  I hope this helps.  =)
