CARBS are not my friend! I GAINED - 4 pounds on the Pizza Diet.
BUT....................PIZZA is great for a diet!!! For me not realistic....But it tasted soooooo good!!!
I of course did not get in an hour of exercise everyday.
Making my own pizza was helpful as I was able to keep an eye on what I put on and I kept the cheese to a minimum (even though I used Skim Milk Low Fat (NO TASTE) cheese....the addition of spices (oregano, basil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, etc) helped a great deal.
Would I do this diet again - - HELL YEAH!!!! It was yummy - but if I was on a time line to drop pounds fast (to fit into a special outfit, go on vacation, class reunion) this diet would not be my first choice.
Who knows, if the weather was better and I got in that hour of exercise daily and did the diet longer I might have counteracted the gain.
But the bottom line is I GAINED. So not so good for my quest to lose weight ......I can not stress enough it was a fun, easy to do diet. No real thinking and the food was delicious!! Drawback - some sight constipation - - but adding the apple juice and more veggies to the pies helped!!
*** DO NOT DO ANY DIET WITHOUT FORST TALKING TO YOUR DOCTOR***
