View Full Version : The Great Pizza Debate

02-07-2004, 09:26 AM
My friend and I are in a heated argument over Pizza, According to Weight Watchers they say that pizza is the best universal food. Because with the right toppings it covers all of the food groups. I say that it is too high in Carbs and sodium. Lets be real i need to lose ALOT of weight and it would not happen by eating pizza everyday with veggies on top.

the 4 food groups are obselete

pizza is what you make it

I eat it almost every day on my cut

I make the dough myself in a bread maker

it's whole grain 3/4 spelt 1/4 wheat

I limit the cheese and slice the peperroni thin and make a thin crust

the problem is that it's so easy to make one that's 1000 cals, I estimate mine around 500 cals

I don't think there is much of a debate; raw foods all the way

It depends on the pizza. A Pizza Hut meat lovers is terrible, due to the trans and sat fats, among others. Home-made could be ok, whole grain crust, fresh veggies, very little cheese, some chicken or something. As long as you keep your cals in check it shouldn't matter too much, but a greasy pizza is probably not a good idea if you're very overweight, as all the bad fats are not good for the heart.

It's not going to hurt you once in a while but it is not something that will help improve your physique.

What are the "healthiest" pizzas that you can order?

Healthiest - Not too many "bad" (useless) carbs, not much "bad" fat

I would assume a thin crust with lots of veggies. Maybe light sauce and cheese.

if your serious about a cut you should make and measure everything that goes into your body as holto described.

i make my own pizza using pita bread as the base, put on some salsa dip n low fat cheese with capsicum, mushrooms and low fat ham and grill. my pizza works out at about 50g of carbs, 40g protein and 8g fat (overall just under 500 calories)
