It’s National Pizza Day! Would You Try “The Pizza Diet”?

Happy National Pizza Day!  For some reason, there aren’t a lot of deals out there this year.  But here’s a fun story that’s making the rounds . . .

A personal trainer in the U.K. named Ryan Mercer just finished a 30-day “PIZZA DIET,” where he ate it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day for a month.  And he somehow managed to LOSE seven-and-a-half pounds.

He ate other stuff too, like protein bars when he needed a snack.  But every meal was pizza.  He averaged 10 slices a day, so 300 slices in one month.

One reason he was still able to lose weight was he made every pizza himself at home.  Obviously that’s gonna be healthier than the stuff you get at Domino’s.  But mainly, he just made sure he still only ate around 2,000 calories a day.

He says he did it to show people you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite foods to lose weight.  You just can’t overdo it.  He was already in great shape before the diet.  But he posted some before-and-after shots, and he does look a little more trim.  (Here are the photos, and here’s his final video.)

Now he’s already moving onto his next idea . . . The Burger Diet.  This month, he’s eating burgers for every meal.
