Real Housewife Jeana Keough's Weight Loss on Thintervention

Could You Limit Yourself to Two Pieces of Pizza a Month?

The Real Housewives of Orange County's Jeana Keough left the drama at home and proudly showed off her slimmed-down body on the finale of Jackie Warner's Thintervention last night. The 55-year-old, who was once a Playboy model, reports losing 25 pounds while on the show (you can see her before and after in the picture at right).

Jeana says she now exercises four or five days a week, eats every three or four hours, and takes time to prepare her food in order to stay in shape. She hasn't given up all her vices, though — she still eats her beloved pizza, but says she limits herself to two pieces once a month.

Pizza is hardly ever a healthy choice, but it's a delicious and comforting food favorite. Could you limit your intake like Jeana, or do you choose to eat it more regularly, but carefully slice off calories or pick heart-healthy toppings?

Easily. Though I enjoy a slice (or two) of a vegetable loaded pizza, I do not crave it so limiting that particular food would not be a problem. What I need to limit is the ruffled chip intake.

I buy a gluten-free vegan pizza and have it a couple times a month. It helps me not feel deprived when my husband gets to eat his big pile of greasy pizza!

I could do it if I had a very specific goal to stay disciplined for but no, I probably wouldn't limit my pizza that much in everyday life.

I don't like much cheese on my pizza and always ask for light cheese. I also prefer thinner crusts. I tend to have it 1-2X a month, but 2 pieces isn't really enough (unless it is deep dish or one of those oddly ginormous by the slice places)

Ditto everyone else -- my hubby makes it at home with whole wheat flour and tons of veggie toppings and sauces. It's the commercial versions that are unhealthy.

The only thing that makes avoiding pizza difficult for me is that it's my friends' shared food of choice because it's easy. I used to get together every Wednesdays for D&D with friends and, of course, there was an abundance of pizza and soda. I started bringing my water bottle and a salad from the Trader Joe's down the street and at most, I'd have one slice of pizza with the cheese removed (cheese doesn't treat my tummy well). For a while there, though, it was pizza once a week. Then when we have a lot of OT at work, they like to treat us... to pizza. There aren't really many options around me to pick up my own food (most restaurants are for local offices, so they close at like 3 or 4) so I'll cave then. I can honestly say, though, that I can't remember the last time I sought out pizza or even paid for one myself.

I get sick of pizza easily so it would be pretty easy to eat it infrequently. Actually I get sick of any food if I eat it too often, even if I love it.

I eat pizza, but probably only once a month already. Now if you asked me if I could limit ice cream to once or twice a month, I don't think I could do that. But limiting pizza would be no problem.

I just don't eat pizza that often...I probably eat them once every few months (just not a big pizza eater although I used to LOVE them when I was a teenager) and if I'm truly hungry, I'll have 3 slices, if not 2 is enough.

I think I don't even eat that much now heh. I am also a big believer in eating your favorite bad foods, but only in tiny portions.

I could never live with silly rules like that. And Pizza, when made right is super healthy. Skim cheese mozzarella, TONS of veggies, a good tomato sauce and not a super dense. oily crust and its good food thats good for you. Almost low cal even, as its like an open faced veggie sandwich with just a bread on the bottom. A lot of places now do whole wheat and thin crust too, making it even easier.

I went with limiting to 2 slices/month.I like pizza. It's hard to stay away from when we live right next to a fantastic pizza place that I swear pumps garlic out of their air vents in the direction of our apartment. While getting a whole pie is more economical, it's better when we just go pick up a single slice so we're not eating pizza for days. I love the brooklyn, which is on a very thin crust; and I think thinner is better than say deep dish.

I don't eat pizza that often but I love it. :) What if we averaged the two slices a month out? Because when I do eat pizza, I eat a lot of it!!

Maybe TWICE a month, but not two slices... I gotta have 2 slices plus a breadstick or two :) I don't do it often, but if I've been craving it for a while I just go for it. Life is for the living.

I was always the weird kid in school who hated hot dogs and pizza (with school cafeteria pizza, who wouldn't hate it?).

I don't really eat a lot of pizza, so this wouldn't be tough for me to do. I'm not a big fan of it.
