The feature comparing how many slices of pizza burnt after a ride can be triggering to those suffering with eating disorders as it uses the comparison that excersize should be carried out in order to counteract ‘unhealthy foods’.
Is that really the intent? I always thought it was just meant to be fun.
Pizza is unhealthy? In a recent episode of GCN on youtube they asked a bunch of Pro Tour riders what their favorite food was and at least 70% said pizza.
As it turns out, “favorite” doesn’t preclude “unhealthy.”
Then again, there are no unhealthy tour pros.
I would argue that “fit” or “strong” (and certainly they are “thin”) or whatever word we might use to describe a tour pro… none of these words preclude “unhealthy” either. But at this point, we risk derailing the OP’s thread. Perhaps we’ll have to agree to disagree.
Is pizza necessarily unhealthy? One of my favorite pizzas is a margherita: pizza dough (flour, water, salt, oil, and yeast), tomato sauce, garlic, dabs of fresh mozzarella, and basil. (Be sure to add the basil after cooking). What’s so bad about that?
