Nice.

I've been having coffee and grapefruit everyday for awhile now. But it is only because coffee is life, and grapefruit is delicious and in season.

Found a couple of spots where maybe a word is missing/extra?

People start to miss the foods that are off-limits and, as frequently as not, making a food off limits makes people want it that more.

Quite in fact, people frequently justify eating more of the diet approved foods.
I make more dumb typos than ever myself; blaming age for that, or maybe mom brain. The ones that bug me the most are when I get the wrong word choice....your for you're kind of thing. Because I know better, so what the heck?

And you don't have long to fix them around here, so I spotted plain instead of plane way after the fact and I still think of is sometimes. :rolleyes:

If you're not going to show me what corrections you think should be made, don't waste my time.

Sorry, thought they were apparent. Not trying to waste your time; just know that it can be hard to spot errors/discontinuity in your own writing because in your mind it is right.

Would add "much"...want it that much more; or drop "that"...want it more.

Or keep "Quite" but rework it...People quite often justify eating more of the diet approved foods.

Great article. There's a clear distinction between a rigid (all or nothing) and a flexible approach. What about people who are somewhere in between?

Personally I'm very rigid towards the deficit part. If a deficit is required, I will go all-in. However, I'm very flexible towards the surplus part. If a surplus will happen (e.g. social event, cravings, whatever), I will make 'smart' choices and don't let it all go to hell.
