    lowering carb and fat intake has always been the primary way to cut calories.

    You could easily lose weight eating 1,200 calories daily ..made up entirely from Pizza.
    Especially if you added even moderate exercise.

    I wouldn't recommend it, but 1,200 is well below accepted caloric intake amounts, for Men and Women who posses even vaguely normal metabolism.

    I suspect the calorie information on your pizza was terribly off. :p

    Insulin resistance - metabolic disorder - pizza is simple/processed carbs, so it doesn't help in losing weight. Just makes you crave more carbs and/or feel hungry all the time on 1,200kcals

    The point is how easy for you to burn more calories than you have eaten. For me, as for cake-hunter, it was pretty hard, lol. So I decided to change my mode of transport. Now it is a bike, not a car.
    I was choosing for a long time which bike is better for me, to make my trips as comfortable as it possible, in the end, I settled on Schwinn Phocus 1600.

    I have no regrets. If you want to lose weight, cycling is the best way to reach your goals.
    P.S you will save a lot of money, as opposed using a car. :)
