Could you imagine consuming just pizza for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for an entire month? As awesome as it sounds, you probably think its unhealthy to do such a thing, too.
However, one graduate student is aiming to change that view by eating pizza for every single meal for an entire month and blogging about it.
Food and sensory science PhD candidate Molly is using her blog, A Month Of Only Pizza, to document her chronicles of just eating pizza for mealtimes. The rules of the self-made challenge are simple: slices of pizza only for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. "Extras," or snack items, don't have to be pizza, however.
Throughout the experience, which has been going on for about a week now, she's documenting her weight, exercise routine, pizza cost, how she and her stomach feel, and even how many slices and what extra stuff she eats in a day.
Of course, Molly wants to de-stigmatize the notion that all pizza is unhealthy for you, and makes that clear in the About section of her blog.
"I have always thought that pizza has been given a bad rap and I intend to show that you can eat a balanced diet and maintain and/or improve measurements (weight, body fat, blood pressure, etc.) on a diet of pizza for every meal."
Because of this, Molly isn't just buying pies from pizza spots or grocery stores. She's making her own pizzas with ingredients like white sweet potatoes, eggs, and spinach, and has even crafted a homemade dessert pizza to satisfy her sweet tooth.
So far, the pizza diet seems to be working, as she's already lost a couple of pounds in the first week of the challenge.
Just goes to show you that a balanced diet with proper exercise is the true key to being healthy and losing weight. Even if everything is in pizza form.
I'm definitely going to be following this blog along to see how everything ends up.
