Why you important that you blot your pizza with a napkin EVERY TIME!

I’m from New York, so I know a thing or two about greasy pizza. And here I thought people wiped off the grease just because they didn’t really know how to eat pizza in the first place…

Why you important that you blot your pizza with a napkin EVERY TIME!

As the Huffington Post reports, an extended effort to calculate the calories saved by blotting your pizza with a napkin has found that it really can make a substantial difference in how many calories are consumed over time.

According to an infographic from Labdoor Magazine, dabbing the oil off of a slice of Dominos pepperoni pizza will save you 4.5 grams of fat and 40.5 calories from fat. If you eat the same amount of pizza as the average American— approximately 23 pounds per year— then dabbing the oil off of every slice will save you 6611.2 calories every year. That’s the equivalent of eating 20.4 fewer slices of pizza, and would (theoretically) keep you from gaining 1.9 pounds.

You can see the infographic here. My thoughts? For less than 2 pounds…just enjoy the grease!
