Figure out about how many calories you need to eat per day in order to lose weight then multiply that by 7. For example: 1300 X 7= 9100. Then zig zag the calories from day allowing yourself to eat more some days and less others. Your body won't know you're dieting if you eat 2,000 calories one day and 1,000 the next. Eating the same amount of calories daily causes plateaus, is stressful & boring. Learn to enjoy food and also be responsible to yourself.
Even healthy home made pizza can send your calorie count really high, So when I make a pizza I also make a quick healthy soup with stock and lots of veggies and eat a bowlful before the pizza. That way I end up eating less pizza, and keep my calories under control. 4
