Me: No thanks.
Girl: Umm... did you want something else?
Me: No thanks, I'm just going to leave. Bye, now.
Girl: I don't understand... you're not hungry? Are you waiting for someone?
Me: No... (????) Thanks, goodbye.
Girl: Well, tell me!! Was anything wrong??
Me: (sigh) Sweetheart, I could shit a better pizza than that.

I really don't think I could last more than two days unless it was a substantial wager. BUT, the question that most would probably come to after thinking for a few seconds....
Will he be allowed any metamucil?

happy_stomach wrote:Cool! Ron, I like you a lot, but as someone who loves a challenge, I've got to root for your colleague. Thirty-one days of sausage pizza is totally doable (though no dessert will be tough). Is he allowed to take a multi-vitamin? Make sure he gets enough vitamin C!
ronnie_suburban wrote:All toppings, with the exception of lettuce on Taco Pizzas (yes, he loves them) and arugula and prosciutto (he has no idea what either of these are), must be cooked into the pizza...No salads, no cereals, no slaw, either.
David Hammond wrote:Here's how I'd exploit what I see as a loophole. No salad (which he's going to need with all that cheese, fat and carb)...but, it's okay to put raw arugula on top. So, you find some second harvest arugula at Whole Foods or wherever and pile that on top. I understand he's never heard of arugula, but if I was on this kind of diet, and my options were so limited, well, I might just be at a "teachable moment."
Also, "cooked into" is a rather vague term. If I slice apples on top of sausage pizza (which might not be a bad combo), and cook for, oh, 30 seconds, I would still be getting some necessary fiber.
Finally, how about skipping meals? Does he have to eat three a day? I'd minimize pain by fasting now and again throughout the month, maybe even skipping breakfast and just having water.
ronnie_suburban wrote:Now, I just have to hope he doesn't read this thread!
nicinchic wrote:I'm loving this challenege. I hope to see his journal entries somehow. Does he have a blog? He is allowed to eat other things at different times of the day right, or not "Any significant caloric intake must be pizza"? But he must eat at least three meals a day of sausage pizza, or skip the meal completely. How is he going to make all of these pizzas? Order out, frozen, or fresh homemade? This guy has to be single right?

I dont know this persons dedication, but I bet it doesnt last past 10 days. I really like alot of things, and other than beer I cant think of anything I want to consume daily.

Bill/SFNM wrote:Aren't the foods we eat and how we eat them worthy of a bit more respect? Sorry if I sound like Mr. CrankyPants, but I don't get voluntarily turning eating into an ordeal.
Kennyz wrote:I think the point is that while it sounds like an ordeal to many of us, it apparently does not sound that way to Ronnie's partner. He is showing the utmost respect for the sausage pizza by proving his devotion in this format.

If I'm going to win this bet, it'll be during the middle portion of the month when he starts to feel bad physically and he gets really tired of the pizza treadmill
