Say No To Pizza!

These days many people are addicted to eating Pizza. Friends Pizza can be eaten occasionally for a change once a month. Please do not eat it regularly as its not good for our health.

Recently Nutritionist David Friedman, author of Food Sanity: How to Eat in a World of Fads and Fiction, what eating pizza every day might actually do to your body, explained that

“Refined flour used to make pizza has a high glycemic index due to the absence of fiber — that means it will spike your blood glucose levels,” Friedman says. “It can also increase blood pressure for several hours after eating it. This is why it’s not uncommon to feel lethargic and want to take a nap after eating pizza.”

“Pizza also contains an excessive amount of sodium, which has been linked to causing an increased appetite, making you overeat,” Friedman continues. “This is why you can easily go from ‘I’ll just have one more slice’ to scarfing down the entire pizza. Excessive sodium has also been linked to an increased risk of hypertension.”

Friedman makes sure to mention that such meaty garnishes are terrible for us. “Pizza toppings, like pepperoni and beef, increase saturated fat and cholesterol intake,” he warns. “Processed meats used on pizza also contain nitrites, which research shows can increase the risk of cancer and heart disease.”
