Calorie-count skills: If calorie-counting skills are good and willpower is even greater, then a person can lose weight no matter what type of food he eats. That is because he will stop eating when he hits the maximum daily number of calories he allows himself. It is that simple. It really is that simple, which means any person can lose weight eating any type of food. But, most people do not have that much willpower.
