Gotta Eat Pizza!
First of all, pizza is nutritious. Alcohol does not have
any nutrient value (sorry). While pizza is high in fat and
full of refined "fattening" carbs, it also has an ample
amount of protein (even more with pepperoni) minerals (lots of calcium
in cheese), and if you go for some veggies (mushrooms and peppers)
you even get some fibrous carbs and antioxidants. Is it a
good choice for every day if you want to lose fat? Of course
not! But if you're going to "cheat," it's far better
to cheat with foods that provide some valuable nutrition than to
go for the empty calories in cookies, cakes, donuts, etc.
Here's the real "gotta." If you love pizza, and
you believe you can never eat it, cravings are inevitable and are
guaranteed to become overwhelming. Sooner or later, when you
give in and call Domino's (and you will, I assure you), you feel
guilty. You feel as if you've blown your program, and that
guilt usually results in abandonment of any attempts at healthful
eating and exercise. If I'm craving pizza on a Friday, and
I know my cheat day is Sunday, it's so much easier to convince myself
to wait two days, than to think "I can never eat pizza again."
If you are eating well all week, you'll feel energetic. By
the end of the cheat day, you feel weak, tired, bloated . . . but
not guilty! You were allowed to eat! And the wiped out
bloated feeling will help set those cravings aside, at least for
Another trick: One
HCA capsule and one
chitosan capsule can minimize the potential for fat accumulation
if taken 30 minutes before a pizza. Be careful though.
Too much fat combined with too much chitosan can lead to (I'll say
it politely) . . . intestinal distress (Yuck). One capsule
and one pizza should be fine for most people.
