Yes, we’re dieting, but we’ve not given up the Pie, oh no. We figure “everything in moderation” unless it’s a trigger food that sets us up for a binge (can you say fast food cheeseburgers?). Anyway, the ediets newsletter had an article about pizza that I thought I’d pass along to my vast readership. *snort*
Here’s an excerpt:
As a hungry whole, we gobble some 3 billion pizzas each year. So it would be easy for us to blame pizza for the fact 6-in-10 Americans are overweight or obese. It just wouldn’t be true.
In its basic form, pizza is not a bad food. In fact, it can be a part of a healthy diet. Well, when you stick with quality ingredients and eat it in moderation!
So don’t forego your beloved pizza just because you are trying to shed a few pounds. Instead, chew on this great advice from eDiets chief nutritionist Susan Burke, a self-proclaimed pizza nut.

You’ll have to skim through the first few paragraphs promoting the ediet membership special, but it gets better. 😉 I’m not a paying member of their site, but I browse the information presented there. My main diet support comes from the forums at 3 Fat Chicks and the weekly weight loss thread in the Healthy Living Forum at Dave’s Garden.
