After Pizza Diet, Pizzeria Owner Embarks On 1,300-Mile Bike Ride

According to the St. Petersbrurg Times, “Last summer, tbt* introduced you to Matt McClellan, the St. Petersburg pizzeria owner who went on a monthlong all-pizza diet to prove that the pies can be healthful.”

“After 30 days of pizza and exercise, the 6-feet-1 1/2-tall McClellan, had dropped from 203 pounds to 179. His blood pressure, cholesterol and other vital statistics had also improved. McClellan, who runs the bicycle-themed eatery Tour de Pizza, was so pleased with the results that he announced he’d one day go on a bike tour across America to spread the pizza gospel.”
