Magazine Puts Nutirtonist's Pizza Claims to Test
The Daily Meal wanted to make sure they weren’t serving their readers an extra large serving of B.S., so they put Amer’s claim to the test in a small study. The study consisted of 124 subjects and showed that up to 92% were consuming more than their cereal’s suggested serving size.
Even Healthy Cereal-Eaters Could Benefit From A Slice Instead
And when taking a look at their healthier cereal consumers, well, let’s just say they didn’t skip breakfast. Those who chose granola as their cereal of choice poured a whopping 282% more cereal than the suggested serving.
All Good Things in Moderation
Amer also told Newsweek:
While pizza can be a healthier choice per se, you may be giving most people an open window here of really amping up sodium, carbohydrates and fat early in the morning and setting oneself up for failure throughout the day.
Okay, we get it. So we shouldn’t indulge in cheesy goodness for breakfast 7 days a week… but who’s really counting?
While Pizza May is not the Ideal Breakfast, It's Not THAT Bad
While Amer warns that pizza is not necessarily the ideal nutritional breakfast food, it’s also not as bad as we might have previously thought. Sometimes, there are even vegetables involved. And cereal can’t compete with that.
Don't Throw All Your Cereal Boxes Out Just Yet
If you’re not ready to say goodbye to your morning cheerios, don’t fret. You can still enjoy a bowl of cereal each morning. Just choose a brand that’s low in sugar and watch the portions. Also, try using fat-free or 2% milk instead of whole.
If this just sounds like too much work, just hit speed dial and start your day right. Extra cheese, please.
