Pizza Power alternative

(Klara Jansson) #1

I’m a vegetarian and never eat pizza, so I don’t really have a connection to the “Pizza Power” metric - I have no idea how much a pizza slice would be :slight_smile:

So how about having an alternative (or several alternatives) in settings for how to display the amount of calories burned. Measurement suggestions:

  • Avocado toasts
  • Kg’s of hummus
  • Bananas
  • Peanutbutter and jam sandwiches
  • Cliff bars (you might be able to get some sponsorship for that one :wink: )

Vegetarian means you still consume dairy products, so go try some real pizza, it’s worth it.

No, it doesn’t :slight_smile: I won’t get into that whole discussion - I only eat plants, but that doesn’t necessarily make me a vegan…

However, even if I did eat dairy, I still think some alternatives would be good for a lot of people who for different reasons do not eat pizza. I know that Zwift is a US-company, so the fact that pizza isn’t a part of the main diet in most parts of the world might be strange, but it is still true…

there is even a pizza for you available theese days. Still worth trying haha.

Well, even tho this option is not necessary in my opinion, it would be nice to have an alternative. I bet those 50lvl guys are sick of pizza slices already lol

Yeah - meat-based alternatives would be an option as well. Like Measuring calories in number of buffalo wings or T-bone steaks :slight_smile: I’m sure there are lots of meat-eaters, who doesn’t eat pizza as well :wink:

What pizza? Quattro formaggi, Hawai? … dont take it to serious but a road racer doesnt it fast food. Soup!

I would like to see it measured in beers. Very dry and hoppy IPAs, specifically.

I’d love to see a ride up the Alp categorized as a :wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass::wine_glass: effort :slight_smile:

True enough. I eat a plant-based diet but I do tend to describe myself as vegan in dietary terms because otherwise people assume I will eat butter, cheese, eggs, etc. =)

One slice of pizza could have hugely different calorific value compared to another slice. Deep pan? Filled crust? Extra cheese?

I know they specify a slice is 285 calories, but still…

If anything I’d rather have “pounds of fat burnt” - ~3500 calories. :smiley: (Although I know that is also a variable figure.)

My vote would be for Chocolate pieces, but what about “Fat and Carbs usage” instead of Pizzas (which I rarely eat and don’t associate with calories). More numbers would be better in my mind and Fat and Carbs numbers would fit better with the Calorie number?

I’d like it to display what you could have powered in watts, for example, a light bulb for XX hours, slices of bread toasted, hours of laptop/computer/tablet time etc

How about just showing the actual number of calories burned in CALORIES (or kJ) & skipping this entire discussion.

(Daren) #16

Because no one knows what “200kcal” looks like.

But of course there’s no ISO standard pizza slice.

The idea is good, the execution is bad.

Why do people have to take the little bits of fun and try and make them serious all the time.
