Diet by the minute

The article presents the author's views on weight loss and dieting. According to the author, losing weight is a complex physiological and mental problem. The battle against obesity must be fought minute by minute, rather than week by week. It is the weakness and temptation that a person experiences minute by minute that will determine whether the battle to reduce calories for a day is won or lost. An example of losing this battle is when a person eats a handful of peanuts, which represents 800 calories out of the possible prescribed 2,000 daily calories.
