What? Pizza again? Absolutely! I ate 2 slices. My friend, Paul (you may have heard 'About' him) ate the rest by himself.
So what's a pizza doing under the heading of "Weight Management"?
The thing to remember here is that this is not a diet. It's a lifestyle.
As long as you stick to the guidelines of eating plant-based, whole foods, you can still eat deliciously, feel satisfied, take in all the nutrition you need and lose weight.
You don't have to eat bland food and you certainly need not go hungry. When your calories are coming from whole grains, fruits and vegetables instead of oil, saturated fat and processed sugar you will feel fuller longer. You won't experience the sudden peaks and troughs in your blood sugar that make you feel like you're starving. You will be less likely to over eat.
Just 2 slices of the pizza pictured above contain 2 servings of fruit, 5 servings of vegetables and 2 servings of whole grains. It contains no oil, no meat, no processed sugar and no refined flour.
From the information on a website of a popular pizza chain, 1 slice of pepperoni cheese pizza contains 280 calories and 11 grams of fat.
TWO slices of the pizza in the above photo contain about 300 calories total and ZERO fat.
I choose to eat more, weigh less, watch my cholesterol numbers go down, take less medicine and never feel hungry. Medicine treats illness, whole foods provide wellness.
Who chooses what goes in YOUR mouth?
