A Florida man is traveling up the East Coast by bike, promoting a new diet that involves eating pizza -- and only pizza.
He’s now on his own tour of sorts, traveling to 22 cities hoping to change the public perception of America’s favorite food. On Monday, he brought his tour to Washington at Pete’s New Haven Style Pizzeria.
Last year, McClellan said he ate pizza for every meal for 30 days and lost 25 pounds. He said he also lowered his cholesterol, shed 10 percent of his body fat and dropped 5 inches around his waist.
It sounds too good to be true, but he said he has the medical tests to prove it.
McClellan said the key to the diet is moderation. During his month he ate one slice every three hours and changed the toppings each time to get his full nutritional value.
He also used a basic workout routine, but warned anyone hoping to try the diet should consult a doctor before jumping into a new exercise plan.
