I have been so good eating only rabbit food (Salads) and lots of fruits and a bowl of cereal a day. But I have been craving Pizza for two weeks I wanted the thin crust from Dominos Pizza bacon and cheese. So after all this time, I finally broke down and got one. Got to say it tastes to good to feel guilty! I love that thin pizza from Dominoes. Has anyone tried it? After this I may have to go on the cabbage soup diet! LOL

I delivered for Domino's for two years. I know firsthand how addictive it can be! LOL. But I think that it's ok to treat yourself when you are trying to eat healthy. In my past experiences, if I didn't allow myself to have something that I was craving once in a while, I would give up. But the fastest way I have ever found to lose weight was on the South Beach diet. It really worked, and was the easiest to follow. I am still following it, and haven't felt like I was depriving myself.

As far as I can see except maybe specialty restaurants that cost double of a Dominoes for its atmosphere Dominoes is the only one that sells the thin pizza and REAL bacon. I have walked in like Pappa John's and their bacon would be canadian bacon which tastes more like ham to me. I am small and no more than I eat, unless my son comes home and eats some, I will be eating on it for 4 or 5 days. I have never weighed over 100 lbs and its either my middle age spread or meds I am on that has made me pack on quite a few problems. Interesting that you eat the South Beach Diet. My husband's doctor told him to buy those. We started and they had them at the Base commissary and Walmart when we were introduced to them. He liked them but now we have not been able to find them. May I inquire where you get yours? I called the company and know they are selling them straight from the company. I guess thats what we will end up doing. Anyway, thanks for all your help. Greatly appreciated!

They actually don't make the frozen dinners anymore. I bought the book, and follow the food list. Basically, I can eat anything that I want except for breads, pasta, potatoes, corn, and rice. I eat a lot of chicken, broccoli, etc. As long as the food contains the "good" carbs, I can eat it. The first two weeks I was on it, I actually lost 23 pounds. (without giong to the gym) So I was pretty impressed with the results.

Yea I steam chicken and even give him sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes etc. My problem is I don't have to eat the way he does because of his diabetes and I crave foods I can't have because I am trying to work around his diet. as I said to another responder here my husband always says he lives to eat while others eat to live. For me that is so sad. I have made like a roast big enough to last a weekend. He will eat dinner and after I go to bed or go to the bedroom to watch some tv he sneeks food. When he is supposed to have one snack I notice he rectifies in his mind to eat like Snack 1 peanuts. Then if I am up about 20 minutes later he gets up goes to the fridge and gets 3 to 4 slices of ham or turkey out rolls it up and eats another snack. The man really makes my food bill go up I watch the carbs when buying his snacks nothing over 20 carbs the doctor said so I spend hours at the stores going through stuff. I used to get south beach diet snacks too. Those are going by the wayside too I guess Anyway thanks for your help. its hard when one has to be on a diet like this and he will not stick to it and then I Have to eat the way he does and deprive myself of things I love to eat. I cant even make a homemade cake because he will eat more of the piece than he should. I can't monitor his eating 24/7 and I sure don't know when he eats it he makes sure I can't see him. You just know when you go to get yourself a piece in the evening.

Hahahah! Hi marie! It's normal for a person who is dieting to get cravings. I'm sure I had my own sinful desires when I was still starting to lose weight. Don't worry, in time you'll be able to control those cravings. For now, enjoy the pizza! Just do more exercise later on.

I know right? too funny. I can only work out every other day as I have a really bad back, but I get there. I actually try not to bring a pizza home cause hubby is diabetic. He HAS to lose weight. I Want to lose weight LOL But he tells me he lives to eat while the rest of us eat to live so I have to be careful what I bring home or I will eat my few pieces and go back the next day, and he will have gotten into it and left me one piece! I think he forgets I live here too when he wants to eat something!

THanks beingwell, but he exercises totally differently than me. I have spinal desinegration so my exercises have to be modified to fit me. God help me if I did an exercise wrong, it would totally take me down in my spine and back.

Pizza Pie - Pizza Pie, Healthy or Not?
It's okay to eat pizza once in a while. Nevertheless it seems pizza is addictive. I understand your craving for pizza because I myself do also crave for pizza very often. But in order not to be very guilty. I always order an all veggie pizza. Although it is still rich in sodium because of the cheese, at least I could avoid the other unhealthy additives.

I had to laugh I went and got the pizza. My son who is a asst manager of a nightclub comes in about 4 am He used to work for a pizza company. So he really does not want to see pizza. Or thats what he always says. I get up after eating about 4 slices of thin sliced, and the box is in the trash and I think WOW he ate pizza? He did, him and I have the same favorite kind, he left me 3 pieces! So guess my diet is better than planned LOL Everyone else eats more than I did.

Hi marie: Wow, at least you have made a good effort for a while. That's good. My suggestion is that if you think you need to keep being on a diet, to follow a journal with all your progress to feel inspired. It's difficult to be rigid when you are in front of a delicious temptation like the one you have mentioned but don't feel disappointed. You make something important during these weeks, next time you'll do it better. ALVARO

You shouldn't feel guilty anyway. You should not deprive yourself of something you want, it usually just leads to gorging yourself on it when you do get to eat it. The key is to eat what you want, but in moderation. If you do slack off, you shouldn't beat yourself up about it and go back to eating right as soon as you can.

Sometimes, we have to give in to our cravings. Though when we do , we should compensate it by a vigorous exercise or activity to lose the calories that goes with the food. Or we could compensate it by just eating a fruit or two for the next meal.

I have found when I have been really strict on a diet, I need to go off, splurge then I am ok to go back. Craving something and denying yourself can lead to overeating on foods you don't crave. I love thin crust pizza..and I think you should indulge, enjoy and then back to that cabbage soup.

I think that part of sticking to a diet enough time so that you lose some pounds is to eat something you really like in reasonable quantities from time to time. I´m on chemo and the headnurse gave me a speech and a booklet on what to eat and what not to eat because chemo raises cholesterol levels. A fried egg was frbidden and I started to crave desperatly for one tiny egg. So I asked the doctor and she said that by all means eat that egg. The idea was not to eat ewhole eggs every day. Eat your pizza and leave guilt aside.

I thinks you don't have to be guilty eating pizza at least once after two weeks of eating salad, fruits and cereal. Just think of it as your cheat day and the day after that you'll go back to your salad, fruits and cereal once again. This will help you not to crave more and more pizza.
