Does anyone know if pizza from a pizza parlor can be working into this plan? Thanks

Hi Mart!

thanks for replying ,

how'd you know I usually get breadsticks?? That's funny! Guess we all think alike

I am glad I got this answer because I can't find it in the books. Thanks,

When I order pizza out I use my hand as a measuring tool.  We know no one slices the pizza the exact same size so I allow for 2 slices that would equal the size of my hand if it were laid out in a prayer position.  (meaning fingers out straight and side by side).  That will equal roughly to a "standard 1.5 -2.0 size serving. I ask them to go light on the cheese and pick lower fat meats and lots of veggies plus a side salad.  When at home making my own....I use a low carb whole wheat tortilla, flat bread, or wrap for my crust, Classico  tomato basil sauce and lean beef, turkey or chicken and load it up w/ veggies that I saute'.  Hope this helps.

Mart, how very nice of you to give Norman and I credit...we obviously learned it from someone, and now you are a great source to rely on as well.  Thank you for the shout out but if you know...share if forward.  That's what this community is all about.

 What if you're avoiding dairy and have pizza without cheese? Can you have more? :)

On the FL lifestyle, cheese is fat so it's optional.  Skipping the cheese will not allow you to have a bigger portion size.  The portion on pizza if you were eyeballing it would be 2 slices the size of your hand with fingers together.  (think prayer hand)  You can also add a side salad and your dressing would count as fat.

Thanks for the great tip! I was wondering about pizza as it is one of my favorite reward/comfort foods. I finally realized what my comfort foods are!  And i'll definitely avoid some of the vendors here which give you pizza the size of your abdomen!! Also i have been having toasted cheese sandwiches (one 1 slice of ezekial bread) with peas and 2 oz of low fat mozzarella or swiss (regular). it is amazing how much protein this stacks up to be as the bread, peas, and cheese all have protein. So i'm glad i can have my cheese sandwiches. easy to fix and delicious.

I just encountered this yesterday because we had

a Pizza Lunch at work.  I was able to have 1 square

slice of Jet's Veggie Pizza and 2 cups of mixed salad

greens.  I used Walden Farms Dressing which counts

for nothing.  I can also have 2 slices of Hungry Howie

Veggie Pizza with a regular crust or 3 slices of Veggie

Pizza with a thin crust.

Hope this helps
