Is a diet including eating pizza unhealthy?June 30, 2011 1:02 am at 1:02 am #865826gefenParticipant
NOPE – it’s one of the healthiest foods around. especially if you have veggies on it. 😉June 30, 2011 1:37 am at 1:37 am #865827fedex11204Member
Is the earth round?June 30, 2011 1:53 am at 1:53 am #865828
honestyly probably not- unless ya want it not to be a typical pizza.
if you make it whole wheat and whole grain, lowfat/reduced fat cheese or cheeseless and grilled (not fried) veggies then you’ve got a healty but nutritious pizza
however, some may disagree… 🙂June 30, 2011 2:21 am at 2:21 am #865829Smile E. FaceMember
pizza is very healthy: eggs, milk,tomatoes,etc.! and oil!!!!! good for arthritis! :0)June 30, 2011 2:59 am at 2:59 am #865830mischiefmakerMember
I don’t know why people make it so bad. If you have homemade its for sure healthier but its the same as eating bread, tomato sauce, cheese and spices. Yes, its high in calories though.June 30, 2011 3:52 am at 3:52 am #865831
hey mods- can i have a saying/motto under my name?June 30, 2011 3:58 am at 3:58 am #865832dunnoMember
There’s no way all that oil can be good for youJune 30, 2011 5:49 am at 5:49 am #865833yankdownunderMember
Englishman Yolk has the right idea as far a Pizza made with Whole Wheat Flour Vegies Grilled and Low Fat Cheese being healthier than the Standard Pizza. Is this the kind of food that will help you lose weight, I don’t think so. The best diet that will help you lose lbs. is the Alkaline Diet. You will have to Google Alkaline/Acidic list. Englishman 80-70% Alkaline Foods and 20-30%Acidic Foods is optimal, but if you gradually adapt to eating more Alkaline than Acidic Foods then you will benefit by losing weight eventually. Chew very well so the food is broken down into Saliva consistancy. Eat dinner several hours before retiring. Drink a lot of water daily at least three Liters of Clean Filtered Water. Drink before or after a Meal but not during eating. Switch from Regular Table Salt to Himalayan Salt(Kosher Certified). Sugar is one of those Acidic Foods that is best to avoid, choose Stevia (Kosher certified) instead. Cooking Oil opt. for Alkaline Virgin Coconut Oil (Kosher Certified), which has a higher burning temperature than Virgin Olive (Kosher Certified) Oil. Make sure Vegies are not Genetically Modified which could be a shailah if they are, and they are not healthy to eat many are from Monsanto Seed. Run, Jog, join a Gym, use an Exercise Bike at home- stay active to help burn Calories.June 30, 2011 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #865834
it sure is worth the calories. its heavenJune 30, 2011 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #865835A Heimishe MomParticipant
everyting in moderation!
A slice now and then is fine, as is anything else you want. Two slices and fries daily, however, is not such a good idea.
The only diet that has been proven to work and be maintable is the Zip It diet! Just zip your lips and stop eating junk! Yes, pizza is junk.June 30, 2011 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #865836PosterMember
I have a terrible weakness when it comes to Pizza. I pass the pizza shop and cant resist!June 30, 2011 2:53 pm at 2:53 pm #865837
thank you mom! similar to chocolate. mods- how is the chocolate going?June 30, 2011 2:55 pm at 2:55 pm #865838Derech HaMelechMember
Is a diet including eating pizza unhealthy?
Not if you’re just looking at it.
Finally. It took me 14 hours to think of a good line for this thread.June 30, 2011 2:58 pm at 2:58 pm #865839GumBallMember
well i take off the oil when i eat pizza its gotta be a little healthier…;0June 30, 2011 3:03 pm at 3:03 pm #865840
id suggest you take another 14 hours.June 30, 2011 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #865841Derech HaMelechMember
I would have, but I think if I waited any longer the timing would be off. One liners require good timing. You have to catch the mood.June 30, 2011 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #865842
pizza is fine if you use whole wheat bread as a base and remove the sauce and the cheese, then put on some alfalfa sprouts and enjoy!June 30, 2011 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #865843PosterMember
Mottis pizza shop in BP makes a cheeseless veg whole wheat pizza. Which is whole wheat has tomato sauce and loads of veggies cut into tiny pieces. Its very good. Cant vouch for the amount of calories, but certainly better for the diet.June 30, 2011 3:13 pm at 3:13 pm #865844
you could put spinach on as a topping then remove the bread, cheese and sauce.June 30, 2011 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #865845
aka broccoli salad.June 30, 2011 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #865846
brocolli?June 30, 2011 3:22 pm at 3:22 pm #865847
SORRY spinach. whatever veg you were talking about.June 30, 2011 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #865848HealthParticipant
“then put on some alfalfa sprouts and enjoy!”
Sorry, nowadays you’ll drop a lot quicker from the sprouts than from regular pizza.
E. Coli in sprouts from Europe killed 30 and sickened thousands.
Samonella in sprouts from the NW of the US sickened hundreds.June 30, 2011 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #865849mewhoParticipant
you can have a veggie pizza with no cheese on it. make sure its whole wheatJune 30, 2011 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #865850
you can find almost any healthy food that has been involved in an e.coli infestation. it is a ubiquitous bug. similar for salmonella.
but were kidding around here healthJune 30, 2011 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #865851oomisParticipant
Blot off most of the oil. Cheese, tomato sauce, enriched weat – what could be bad?June 30, 2011 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #865852
dont be fooled. enriched wheat is a 100% refined product.
they take healthy whole wheat remove the protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals ,and fats. then they mix back in a few vitamins.
they call it enriched to fool the consumer
so too unbleached grain, meaningless healthwiseJune 30, 2011 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #865853twistedParticipant
Even whole wheat is generally not left whole. In most or all commerical flour, the germ must be removed because it spoils quickly unless roasted, vaccum packed and refrigerated. It is worth the effort to mill your own, because the taste and richness of fresh ground whole is incomparable. (and in matza, actually delicious) If you have a Kitchen Aid, there is a mill attachment but i dont know how it is rated. Some of the Magic Mills are serious enough for most.June 30, 2011 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #865854
im no expert
could be youre right
but a quick googling expedition says the germ is left in
what you say is logical thoughJune 30, 2011 8:37 pm at 8:37 pm #865855GetzelParticipant
I mean besides the crust what if it was whole grain crust and cheese well wouldn’t only a little bit of thin layer of cheese be alright especially if it was low fat and tomato sauce is food for you because its a vegatable. and pizza is baked in the oven so why is it bad for you?
The reason that some people believe it is bad for you is more based on the idea it is a fast food that has lots of over processed products on it. It is also thought of as a evening meal and that is the time the average person eats a green vegetable. You are correct in thinking a whole grain crust is better as white flour has been processed and has nutrients removed. The fact that whole grain requires the body to work harder to digest is a good thing. If you was to make 2 pizza at home one with regular cheese and one with a processed cheese not only would you find the one without the processed cheese tastes better. It is healthier.June 30, 2011 9:47 pm at 9:47 pm #865856L613Member
My eating philosophy is to find nutritious foods that fill me up substantially so I don’t eat again for a few hours. Pizza is the ultimate diet food! It is a complete meal – protein (cheese), carbs (bread – best if whole wheat), and veggies (if you have veggie pizza). It really does the trick and keeps you full for a few hours! The meal is best if you combine it with a nice salad and drink water.
As Heimishe Mom put it – everything in moderation (which I think is a very “heimish” perspective). Don’t make yourself crazy! You want to develop good eating habits that last.June 30, 2011 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #865857minyan galMember
Heimishe Mom – you said “Yes, pizza is junk.” Sorry to tell that you are wrong. Ask a dietician and they will tell you that pizza contains most of the food groups in one handy product. It gives you grain, dairy and protein. If you have a vegetarian pizza, then you also have an extra group. Of course, cheese is a high calorie food, so, as with everything, eating pizza must be done in moderation – a meal should be a slice or two, not an entire extra large pizza. I have read many articles saying basically what I have just said. Most professionals also say that if your kids want to eat cold pizza for breakfast, let them do it. It gives them a more nutritious start to the day than a bowl of sugary cereal. They will stay full longer with pizza, enabling them to absorb more of what they are being taught in school. I didn’t make this all up – just parroting what I have read. Pizz is NOT junk.July 1, 2011 1:57 am at 1:57 am #865858Smile E. FaceMember
pizza is healthy. the end. veiter! :0)July 1, 2011 10:46 am at 10:46 am #865859basket of radishesParticipant
Ok. It has carbohydrates and quite a bit of cheese. That tomato sauce never killed anyone. But that said, I really must say that our Creator probably did not make the pizza an appetizer for the children of our years just to be fearful of in the future as we schvitz about the number on the scale. But hey, dont eat it more than once a week at the most unless you just can not find anythig else to dine on. Right?July 1, 2011 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #865860A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Moderation is the key word here. If you have a slice of pizza once or twice a week, and maintain a well balanced diet, you’re fine. If you’re eating two slices or more per day, it becomes junk. It’s been shown that people who deprive themselves of the foods they truly enjoy end up in over indulging. It’s better to allow yourself an occasional “treat”, be it pizza or once a week ice cream.July 1, 2011 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #865861YW Moderator-42Moderator
Pizza is healthy as long as you only get a small fries and diet coke with itJuly 1, 2011 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #865862
Even diet soda is unhealthy 😉 supposedly it also causes weight gian like the pizzaNovember 24, 2011 2:21 am at 2:21 am #865863moishyParticipant
Well, Congress just voted that pizza is considered a vegetable and CAN be served in school cafeterias for lunch. So, I guess that makes it healthy, right?? 🙂November 24, 2011 9:18 am at 9:18 am #865864moi aussiMember
If you make it whole grain, make it whole spelt. Wheat has become a problem product over the years. Many people have developed allergies to wheat, and it also causes bloating/constipation. Spelt has become the popular wheat replacement.November 24, 2011 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #865865April 4, 2012 5:22 pm at 5:22 pm #865866menucha12Member
