Pizza Makes You Fat
Italy conquers the world not through Mussolini but via the classic comfort food, the pizza. Originally the pizza was merely a flatbread. People in Italy did not even top it with anything other than olive oil and herbs. Today, pizza is a multi-million fast food chain. In Alberta, Canada, pizza shops are everywhere. People can have pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The flatbread from Italy has even evolved into rolled pizzas, pizza with bread covers, and even joined the world records where most pizza measured 37.40 meters in diameter. Now that can feed a whole town of pizza lovers!
Ordering a pizza is the best thing that happened to food and the worse thing that happened to the body. People can stay on the internet all day doing their jobs and never getting up to prepare a meal or two because pizza is just a few clicks away. Upon arrival, it can very well sit on the same work table and by the time you know it, you've done a whole box of pizza while doing work.
But who could not love pizza! The spices that go into it bring aromatic flavors away. The layers of cheese melting, not only one but three, activate your salivary glands. Toppings can anything that is an all time favorite or it can be everything-on-it. And as if that's the end of it. Pizza sauces are spread all over on top making the meal a delight to behold and something to covet.
Unfortunately, pizza is fattening. First the cheese has so much calories and cholesterol content. The sauces add more. The toppings if they are processed meats will get the calorie scale to the top. The usual pizzas count to almost 1000 calories which accounts for half the calorie one needs a day. Eating a slice is therefore equal to a can of coke. But who gets satisfied with just one slice? If you're really hungry and need a quick bite, go to your local jennycraig and order some healthy and low calorie food. Who knows you might love their food.
But pizza by itself is not fattening if the ingredients are not. If there's such a thing as pizza without the cheese lining then there is hope. Getting the cheese out is almost getting half the calories out. Toppings can be altered also. Vegetarian pizzas use no meats on their meals. Adding more pepperoni to pepperoni pizza is logical. They call these pizza, pizza salads. Pizzas areought to be shared with friends therefore ateen for special occasion only. Solo size pizzas can even be shared with a weight loss buddy. One good example of a low calorie pizza is the weightwatcherspizza.
If one really needs to have pizza then the advice is not to have cola or beer with it. The consequences will be dire and the weight loss program can fail. Cola will just add to the calorie that pizza has. The spice of the pizza is great with beer but without one promises to run a mile or two the next day, then the beer should be scheduled for another day.
But still, hope is not lost if one just can not stop craving for this Italian love. Diet pills, weight loss drinks and patches can save the day. Depression is harder to cure. Being broken hearted is easier than self-suppressing oneself to a delicious Italian favorite. Soon enough with weight loss programs, eating pizza on a normal level like one or two slices instead of one or two delivered boxes at a time will happen. Then the love affair with pizza can continue in moderation.
