Does your restaurant meal count equal or exceed 6 a week -- the national average? Add them up. Don’t forget meals eaten in or taken out, count that cup of java and nibble in the am, grab and eat-on-the-run lunch or afternoon pick me up!

Americans down a third of their calories away from home and fruits, vegetables, low fat dairy foods and grains are often missing in action. True, restaurant meals make eating quick and easy. So, mastering menu minefields will be a key to your weight control success!

Join Hope Warshaw, MMSc, RD, as she shows you how simple changes and a few tips skim fats and trim calories at Pizza Hut.


Supreme Stuffed Crust Pizza (2 slices)
840 calories, 42g fat, 78g carbs, 4g fiber, 2,640mg sodium

Healthier Meal

Fit n’ Delicious Diced Chicken, Red Onion & Green Pepper Pizza (2 slices of 14" pie)
460 calories, 12g fat, 64g carbs, 4g fiber, 1,460mg sodium

*Nutrition information from www.pizzahut.com

Wow, just that small change resulted in a savings of 380 calories and 30 grams of fat!

Tricks ‘N Tips to Eat Right at Pizza Hut

1. Choose a combo of fresh veggie toppings like peppers, mushrooms, onions, sliced tomatoes, spinach or broccoli.

2. Add flavor with chicken, ham, or Canadian bacon toppings; they’re lower in total and saturated fat than meatballs, sausage, pepperoni or extra cheese.

3. The more crust, the more calories, so just say NO to Stuffed Crust. Say YES to the thinner crusts like Thin ‘N Crispy and Fit n’ Delicious.

4. Keep your portion at one to two slices, depending on the size of the pie. One slice from a large pie may be just as satisfying as "- and lower in calories than -- two slices from a medium pie.

Thanks for the tips!! Pizza Hut is a place we used go to often because the kids get their Reader's Certificates from school for a free personal pan pizza. Unfortunately, we've never went for the lower calorie options. It's usually a Meat Lovers Pan Pizza that fills my to the point of supreme stuffness. YUCK!! It's been a loooooong time since I've done that to myself....so now I know there's some better things to choose from. Thanks again!!!

6 meals a week? That sounds like a ton! We maybe have 1, but usually none!

This blog is related shopping. New ideas, quality designs, sensible colors, and no-nonsense prices. I want to like the bag, but something is keeping me from liking it. Unfortunate because I own so many of his bags. This is really nice blog
