Lanky, twiggy, weedy, gangly. I have been called them all. Yes, I may sound like a skinny b*tch, but even thin girls have body issues. My chest missed the boat on puberty, and after large dinners my food baby rivals that of an actual pregnant woman.
I thought I had tackled weight gain until my aggressive eating caused a deflection. The delay hit when I was being measured for a casting in my Calvin Klein underwear. The woman measuring my tight end announced I was “too big.” I laughed, then put down the potato chips.
It’s football season and there is no better bonding time with your man than Monday night football with a beer and pepperoni pie on hand. Those carbs can be killer, while the cheese indigestion can put a time out on any power play you were planning to make.

Cooking Light came up with a pizza recipe that was guaranteed to get me to the end zone. We at doB made it a bit easier by using pre-made whole wheat naan bread to ensure more man-to-woman coverage time.

These personal pies kept my guy full while my non-bloated self felt sexy enough to score my own touchdown.
