Some things to keep in mind when choosing your pizza:

· Limit your serving size to no more than two slices.

· Your best bet is the veggie toppings; they contain numerous nutrients and negligible calories.

· Meat toppings tend to increase the calorie and fat content.

· For added nutritional benefits, add a side salad.

In the era of the 64-oz. soda, the 1,200-calorie burger, food companies now produce enough each day for every American to consume 3,800 calories per day as compared to the 2,350 needed for survival. Not only adults but kids are also consuming far more calories than they can possibly use. http://www.phentermine-effects.com
