Negate What You Ate: Pizza
Oh, no! You just had 830 calories, not to mention 46 grams of fat and 2,110 mg of sodium!
To burn it off, you’ll have to:
SHOP for 5 hours and 8 minutes
BIKE for 3 hours and 5 minutes
COOK for 4 hours and 38 minutes
WALK for 2 hours and 48 minutes
DO JUMPING JACKS for 1 hour and 31 minutes
Next time, make it heathier:
Pick just one meat.
The over-the-top combo of pepperoni, ground beef and ham is why this pizza packs so many calories in just 6 inches. If you absolutely want meat, ham is the way to go to cut back on calories and sodium. You'll save 225 calories, 21 grams of fat and 850 mg of sodium.
Or use the mushroom trick.
To satisfy a meat craving, order mushrooms instead. These veggies will deliver the same meaty texture. You'll save 300 calories, 22 grams of fat and 817 mg of sodium.
Think thin (crust).
Thick crusts are always higher in calories. The thinner, the better. You'll save 100 calories, 4 grams of fat and 60 mg of sodium.
Go easy on the cheese.
Ask for half the cheese, or order a pizza with just sauce and sprinkle on 2 Tbsp Parmesan cheese. You’ll still get that cheesy taste minus the calories and fat. You'll save 72 calories, 6 grams fat and 234 mg of sodium.
Stick with veggies.
This slashes almost 300 calories, plus it cuts the fat grams in half and the sodium content by about 40%. You'll save 280 calories, 26 grams of fat and 920 mg of sodium.
Eat salad first.
Fill up on greens and you’ll be more likely to eat fewer slices.
