What the Yuck: Does blotting pizza save calories?

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: How many calories do you save blotting pizza with a napkin?

You are probably cutting 20 to 50 calories a piece - not a whole lot, but I guess if you have a couple of slices, it adds up. So if it makes you feel better, go for it.

Other ways to skinny up your pie: Ask the pizza guy to cut it into 10 or even 12 slices (each piece will have fewer calories and less fat), and start with a salad so you aren't famished by the time you open up that box. Also, order whole wheat or thin crust, avoid fatty toppings like sausage or pepperoni, and go for veggies like peppers or mushrooms instead. And, of course, if you skip the cheese, you'll cut out a whole lot of calories and saturated fat.

But call me old-fashioned: It's just not pizza without any cheese.

    I do love the way you have framed this situation plus it does indeed give me a lot of fodder for thought. However, coming from what precisely I have witnessed, I just wish when the actual commentary pile on that folks remain on issue and in no way start upon a soap box associated with the news of the day. All the same, thank you for this exceptional piece and even though I can not necessarily concur with this in totality, I value your point of view.

    You actually make it seem really easy with your presentation however I to find this topic to be really something which I think I'd by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very vast for me. I am having a look ahead on your next put up, I’ll attempt to get the hold of it!
