Variety (In Pizzas) Is The Bane Of A Healthy Diet

May 11, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
To avoid overeating, stick to your favorite brands of food, a British clinical study recommends. The researchers looked at the eating behaviors of 200 people who either tried many different brands and types of pepperoni pizza or who tended to stick to a favorite brand. More than 70 types of pepperoni pizzas, available in supermarkets or from famous name pizza shops, were found. Calorie content among the various brands differed by more than 300 percent, from 501 calories per pie to as much as 1909 calories per pie. The researchers found that people who tried a variety of brands and types of pepperoni pizza tended to eat more, believing the pizza to be less filling.
