This January, you're probably trying to make healthier choices in a bid to shed those few extra pounds you packed on over the holidays -- not to mention the 10 to 20 you've been promising to lose for years.
But seeing that it's at the height of the miserable winter season, January is also a good time to order in food instead of venturing out in the ice and cold for a meal. But if pizza is your take-out food of choice, are there any healthier options? In the recent issue of US Weekly, they recommend ordering the thin crust veggie pizza -- but what's the damage if you do?
At 420 calories and 5 g of fat for two slices, the thin crust veggie pizza is by far the best item on the menu. In fact, ordering two slices of the veggie pizza on a whole wheat crust -- also a seemingly healthier choice -- will add 120 calories.
|276 calories||86 (8.7%)|
|325 calories||159 (16.1%)|
|420 calories||436 (44.0%)|
|677 calories||309 (31.2%)|
But can you stick to just two slices? If so, good for you -- this is a great pizza choice. But for those of you who love pizza too much to stop at two, you could end up eating half your day's worth of calories in one sitting. Make sure to fix yourself a salad before the delivery boy shows up -- it will help keep you from overdoing it at the dinner table.
