Yes!! I try to tell people the same thing (with lots of scientific references) but nobody wants to hear it. I love that you've made this harsh "no-magic" reality such an entertaining read.

Many of your tips also resonated with my personal experience- the benefits of tracking, the concept of spending your limited calorie budget wisely, and use of pre-portioned servings for high-calorie foods (like individual chocolate squares).
