Domino's Pizza Named a Good Choice for a Healthy Diet
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Resolving to lose weight in the New Year? Don't skip your Domino's pizza. In the January issue of Glamour magazine, in an article titled "What to eat to stay slim" two slices of Domino's 12" classic hand-tossed Vegi Pizza Feast(R) and a side salad were named as a healthy meal choice.
Not in the mood for veggies? A slice of a medium hand-tossed Domino's cheese pizza is only five points on the Weight Watcher's(R) Flex Plan.
Glamour is not the first magazine to recognize Domino's pizza as an option for a healthy diet. In the May 2006 issue of Women's Health magazine, in an article titled "Eat This, Not That ... " Domino's medium hand-tossed cheese pizza beat Pizza Hut's medium hand-tossed cheese pizza as the preferred choice for a healthy diet. Likewise, in 2004 and 2006 Men's Health magazine recognized Domino's pizza as a healthy choice when craving a piping hot pizza.
"The beauty of pizza is that it can be as healthy or indulgent as you want it, and the consumer is in the driver's seat," said Tim McIntyre, Domino's vice president of communications. "If losing weight is on your wish list for 2007, you don't have to sacrifice your slice of Domino's pizza for your waistline."
