Pasquale Cozzolino is the executive chef at an Italian restaurant in New York – and his doctor told him to lose weight, because otherwise he’d have a heart attack.

So the 38-year-old, who weighed 370 pounds at the time, embarked on a diet with a difference.

Most days for lunch, Cozzolino dined on pizza – and lost 100 lbs in a year.

But Cozzolino’s pizza doughs don’t contain any butter or lard, and only have a thin layer of mozzarella.

He's said that each pizza contains around 470 to 540 calories.

Cozzolino now has a book, titled "The Pizza Diet".

And here's his amazing transformation:
