Continued from Eat Pizza and Lose Weight.
Is pizza healthy? We already know that it is possible to eat pizza and lose weight. But is pizza healthy if you eat it in moderation? I think it is. I mean, even eating a double cheeseburger with bacon is not going to do a lot of damage to your diet if you do not eat it every day. Let’s put it this way, if you are itching to lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks, it is better to eat a few slices of pizza than, say, something loaded with artificial ingredients and sugar, but not all pizzas are created equal.
So let’s take a closer look at a number of frozen pizza options that are available today.
Amy’s Pesto Pizza with organic vegetables and basil packs a savory punch. And besides being delicious, this 310-calorie wheat-flour pizza is more filling than some of the other low-cal frozen pizzas out there.
Weight Watchers Smart Ones Four Cheese Pizza can probably fulfill your pizza urge. A lot of people are surprised by how good it tastes – and how stuffed they feel after the merely 370-calorie indulgence. You might want to keep this one stocked in the freezer.
The Kashi Sicilian Veggie Pizza has only 220 calories, but this cheese-free meal, topped with eggplant, onions and peppers, feels more like a flatbread appetizer than a traditional pizza. The white-bean tomato sauce seems to lack the classic tomato flavor.
Lean Cuisine Margherita Pizza The best part of this low-carb, 340-calorie slice is probably the sauce. The rest seems bland. Plus, while most people feel full at first, they often end up gorging on a sandwich two hours later, which is not a very good situation for those who are watching their daily calorie intake.
Healthy Choice Cheese French Bread Pizza – yum! This 350-calorie slice is loaded with four cheeses and has enough tomato sauce to satisfy most taste buds. Plus, the fluffy French bread makes you feel as if you are splurging. [via]
