Have people not heard of carb overload Confused.

No they haven't.... Hence obesity exists


NotQuiteCockney · 23/06/2013 18:51

That's a ridiculous meal.

Where's the rice? Grin


MrsRajeshKoothrappali · 23/06/2013 18:51



Soooo glad someone else feels the same way.



Trills · 23/06/2013 18:51

I think "very odd indeed" is a massive overstatement, so YABU.


usualsuspect · 23/06/2013 18:52

It's odd not to have garlic bread with pizza.

You need to get out more ha ha. Sounds lovely to me.

My teens need this much carb overload to fill up and they are all skinny.

You can't cook for toddlers and yourself like you cook for teens.

We have oven chips, a few slices of pizza and peas occasionally. And we are the furthest away from obese as you can get so yabu.

YANBU with regards to chips

YABU with regards to garlic bread, yum!

My MIL thinks lasagne and jacket potato work together as a meal. That is odd.


Myliferocks · 23/06/2013 18:55

My DC have half a pizza and garlic bread on a Saturday. They have both as it is cheaper than getting enough pizza for them all.


ExitPursuedByABear · 23/06/2013 18:55

My dad had sprouts with his pizza. Pronounced pitsa.


AKissIsNotAContract · 23/06/2013 18:55

I'm low carbing so it sounds crazy to me.


HeySoulSister · 23/06/2013 18:56

It doesn't fill them up tho... Carb/sugar fest leaves you craving more. With teens it's a false economy. My 3 are all mooching in the kitchen less than an hour later


Labradorwhisperer · 23/06/2013 18:57

It's a question of portion size... One slice of pizza and a few chips, ok. Whole pizza and chips, not ok. I agree however that on the whole, double carbs can be bad news! (Unless its cake + cake) :)


Xmasbaby11 · 23/06/2013 18:57

Not that I eat it, but that combo has been around for years, so it doesn't surprise me. Mini pizza, beans and chips was pretty common in the 80s!


exoticfruits · 23/06/2013 18:58

I was amazed on holiday in Cornwall to get a take away pizza and be asked if I wanted chips. When I queried it apparently most people wanted both. It explained why there were so many fat families on the beach!


IsThatTrue · 23/06/2013 19:01

That's my dinner, pizza and chips, not a whole pizza or many chips tbh but I love them together!

And garlic bread and pasta mmmmmm


marriedinwhiteagain · 23/06/2013 19:02

I wouldn't but an awful lot do. Cheesy chips with mayo anyone? They "all" seem to like that too.

My lot want yorkies and roasties with dinner tonight. Gets up to put on yorkies !!


raffle · 23/06/2013 19:03

Eh? This is standard combo around these parts. YABU to call it very odd indeed.


McNewPants2013 · 23/06/2013 19:05

It ok in moderation.


StealthPolarBear · 23/06/2013 19:06

I do sometimes have it but I know exactly what you mean. Most meals are based around one type of carb.
Unless you go to a pub in Newcastle where they garnish their jacket potato lunches with crisps.


Hulababy · 23/06/2013 19:08

A slice or two of pizza, with a slice of garlic bread, and a big dollop of coleslaw sounds good to me. Not for every day obviously, but yes - works for me.

Pasta and garlic bread also go well together ime.


Badvoc · 23/06/2013 19:08

My ds1 thinks Pizza and chips is the food of the gods so Yabu.


shazbean · 23/06/2013 19:08

Once in a blue moon - fine.
Chips and macaroni cheese with garlic bread - really?! I can eat junk food but for some reason that combination turns my stomach.


Yonididnaedaethat · 23/06/2013 19:08

Oh dear I had deep fried pizza and chips from the chippy last night Blush


EleanorFarjeon · 23/06/2013 19:09


I find it most odd that people might have chips with lasagne, wedges with quiche, garlic bread with pasta, pizza with chips. All these lardmungous things I have heard of only on MN.

Carbs people! Too many carbs!
