🍕HOW TO HAVE PIZZA NIGHT EVERY WEEK AND STILL GET RESULTS!🍕
Pizza is undoubtedly delicious, so most folks assume that if they decide to start a diet for fat loss, it must be off the list of "approved" foods. .
If you (or your family) love pizza, you can absolutely build a "pizza night" into your weekly menu of meals. Here are some ways to make it work for your fat loss or healthy lifestyle goals too:
🍕DO cook it yourself. You can go as far as to cook your own sauce and bake your own crust, or your can cut corners and use store-bought ingredients. Either way, you'll still be saving a ton of calories vs delivery pizza!
🍕DO be mindful of your portions. You can overeat just about any food, es, pecially tasty ones, and home-made pizza is no exception! Practice eating slowly and stopping when you feel just satisfied at each meal. .
🍕DO include protein and vegetables on your plate as well. If pizza night is to be a staple in your routine, then your plate should still look more or less like your plate at other meals (about half filled with fruit, a quarter with lean protein, a quarter with some starch and/or some fats). . 🍕DO explore crust alternatives, if you'd like. You can seek out veggie based crusts, meat-based "crusts", whole wheat crusts, gluten-free crusts, tortilla crusts, etc. Choose one that works for your preferences, but check out the serving sizes for whichever you choose to keep the overall calories in check. . 🍕DO go easy on the cheese, bacon, and other high-fat toppings. You need some healthy fats in your life, but it's particularly easy to make a reasonably portioned meal into a higher calorie meal by being a little too heavy handed with certain toppings. ... .. .
There you go: pizza CAN be a part of a healthy and sustainable eating plan! . . . . .
