Pizza Craving

So yesterday I had an interesting experience.  Ever since I started dieting I have been craving 2 things- steak and pizza.  I’m not even that big of a steak person but its jut sounded so delicious. I think it is the iron and protein that looks so tempting.  One of my favorite things is steak cooked with butter, A1 sauce and blue cheese.  Yum!  It’s funny because my mother can’t cook steak (or other red meat) to save her life but somehow I gained a taste for it on my mission.  I know that steak can be healthy in small doses but I just don’t know if I can control myself.  Plus, it is so expensive.

I’ve always loved pizza- especially New York style in a brick oven.  I love traditional toppings such as ricotta, pepperoni and fresh mozzarella.   I did find a great whole wheat pizza dough recipe but it is pretty labor-intensive.  It isn’t the kind of recipe I can make in an hour or so.  Anyway, I just love pizza. It is the perfect combination of flavors.  Italian is my favorite kind of food and pizza and spaghetti are my favorite items.

After months of craving I gave in yesterday and bought a frozen pizza and ate the whole thing.  (Don’t worry. It wasn’t fast food.  I’m still going strong on that goal!).  This frozen pizza is the one moment of weakness I’ve had since I started at the beginning of March and you know what I learned from the experience.  First of all it wasn’t as good as I remembered it and Second, I had heart burn for like 2 days and felt terrible. I guess my body is really beginning to change and eventually it will crave different things.  I am hopeful that when I try fast food at the end of the summer I will have a similar experience where it won’t taste as good anymore.

As I feel these cravings in the future I will definitely look back on this experience and remember that what sounds good doesn’t always taste good.  Still lost another 2 lbs this week! That’s 25 total!

    1. Thanks for the comment. There are whole wheat pizza’s but even they are loaded with fat and calories and they are so expensive. It’s just something that for now I can’t eat very often.
