A note from the SuccubaSuprema:
Also remember that portion control is a major factor in weight management. Stuffing yourself, gorging, binging on foods -- whatever you want to call it, this is bad, because it results in the stomach increasing in size, thereby requiring more food intake in order to feel full. Fortunately, this can be reversed by practicing portion control (5-HTP, or L-5Hydroxytryptophan, may also help you control your appetite, if you have IBS or an IBD). Pizza, as those who know me well can attest, is my personal weakness. I can eat pizza every meal of a day, 7 days a week, 365.25 days a year, and never get tired of it (I do speak from experience, having worked as an assistant manager at a pizzeria for a couple of years in my younger days, although I did successfully escape eating pizza at every meal in that time period). There are so many variations possible (and not only topping alternatives), that I can avoid getting burned out on it. I have been known to eat half of a medium pizza in one sitting, and I realize that's just a little too much, even if it's only a pizza margherita (toppings will increase the caloric content, as well as, potentially, add undesirable types of calories). You (and I) should eat only what you (and I) need, rather than the whole pizza (not even an entire "small" pizza, nor, depending on the size of the pizza and what toppings are on it, a whole "personal" pizza). Mostly, it's important to keep a positive attitude; regardless of the claims of a certain television advertisement, you CAN do it on your own.
