I was racking my brain yesterday to try and come up with just one thing that is better than pizza. I had nothing. Apparently, there is one thing and it has far less calories.

But, you will have to forgive me if I don't share the same excitement as the people that took this study.

According to PR Newswire, the anticipation of pizza gives us more satisfaction than actually eating it. I couldn't disagree more. But, numbers don't lie.

People got 18% happier than average when they saw a pizza go into the oven . . . 24% happier when they could smell it cooking . . . and 20% happier when it was taken out of the oven.

But when they took their first bite, it only made them 11% happier.

After I read this study, I went home to complete my own survey. And, what I found is that I really have unhealthy issues with food and pizza specifically.

Imagine though how many calories you could save by just going through the routine of having pizza but stopping short of eating it.
