Delivery Disasters for Your Waistline

S0me scary news from Diet & Fitness at sponsored by Jenny Craig

According to, some of the latest delivery offerings should inspire fear in even the staunchest pizza fans.  Delicious meaty, cheesy pizza has astronomical fat and calorie counts. But Domino’s newest items have even more fat, calories and sodium.  The 3-Cheese Mac-N-Cheese has a whopping 1,460 calories and 2,500 milligrams of sodium.  The Chicken Alfredo bowl is a little better, but it has 1,460 calories and 2,100 milligrams of sodium.

(Note: for heart patients the recommended per serving amount is 400 milligrams or 800 for a main dish casserole. That’s what a hospital dietitian told me )

           Both dishes top 50 grams of fat, which should count as TWO servings. Domino’s also serves an Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan sandwich.  You’d think “Baked” means healthful, but this 766 calorie sandwich has 30 grams of fat.  Rival Pizza Hut also offers pasta, but  one-fourth of their chicken alfredo pan contains 620 calories and 32 grams of fat.  Just think what it would be if you ate the whole thing. When a pasta craving strikes, you can save calories and cash by making your own with whole-grain pasta and canned tomato sauce.

(Note: I used to make my own pizza for my son’s birthday parties – pizza for 8 teenage boys can be expensive.  I made the dough from scratch, but you can buy it ready made now.  I used Del Monte ketchup, garlic salt and onion salt and topped it with pepperoni and shredded cheese.)
