Eating Pizza Does Not Have to Wreck Your Diet
Most people don't think of pizza when they list foods that you should eat on a diet. But, it is possible. Read on to learn more about how you can eat what everyone else is without worrying about the scale.
Nix the Drinks
It's a popular joke among comedians (both those who perform on the stage and those who perform for free in your circle of friends) to make fun of anyone ordering a bunch of fast food only to top off the order with a Diet Coke. Who do they think they're kidding, right? In reality, those people are saving themselves hundreds of calories in liquid sugar. Thousands or more over the course of weeks or months. Those empty calories can really add up. If you want to make sure that your pizza dinner doesn't get out of control, consider drinking water or something else without calories.
You want to get thin, right? This should be easy to remember! But, seriously, thin crust is your best option when looking for low-calorie pizza. You would be surprised at how many extra calories can be packed into that crust. A thin crust slice can sometimes have as little as half the calories of a comparable thick crust slice. You know what that means, right? You can have double the food for the same amount of calories! Since "feeling deprived" is often one of the biggest psychological barriers for those trying to lose weight, this trick can come in handy.
Up Your Exercise
Were you one of the people marveling at the supposed diet plan of Michael Phelps when it came to light in the 2008 Olympics? If not, you should take a look at it and then take a look at Phelps' physique. It might not be healthy or practical for you to eat that much or exercise that much, but it goes to show that your body can do amazing things with all of those calories if you just get out there and sweat every day. Want to enjoy pizza and other forbidden foods? Up the exercise and you can.
