Most people would go drooling at the very sight of a pizza, but this attractive little thing is so bad for you, particularly if you want to shed pounds. The commercially made pizzas are loaded with fat, calories and refined carbs. The most popular ones are full of cheese and also processed meat. A high intake of such meats can cause obesity and pave the way for other health problems like heart disease and even some types of cancer. However, this does not mean you cannot eat pizzas at all. Just look for a pizzeria that uses healthy ingredients like a whole grain dough, low-fat cheese, and vegetables, or you may even make your own pizza at home.
