The NFL Sunday pizza trick

Filed under: , , ,

As a follow-up to Martha Edwards' post about how to avoid the football flubber, here's one more very useful trick that relates to a very common NFL Sunday situation.

Everyone has decided to order pizza from Domino's, and you're already salivating like Pavlov's dog at the mere thought of the taste. But, at the same time, you've been working very hard to lose some weight and you know that eating eight pieces of pizza certainly will not help in that effort. What do you do when faced with this dilemma?

Don't throw in for the pizza. You state that you don't want any pizza, which therefore makes you exempt from having to kick in money. Then, once the pizza has arrived and all your buddies are devouring it like a pack of hungry wolves, you have to grin and bear your way through the next fifteen minutes. At this point, there will almost invariably be several uneaten pieces still sitting in the delivery boxes.

9 out of 10 times, your buddies will offer you one of those pieces. You'll contest that you didn't pay and that it wouldn't be right, but hey, they're already full and it's only one piece. So, you eat it. But, heaven forbid you go for a SECOND piece!! Forget it, they'll be all over you, regardless of the fact that there are about seven more slices left that will most likely make their way into the trash. Knowing this, and acting accordingly, you're decision not only landed you a free piece of pizza, but it also saved you from blowing your diet completely.
