Man Bravely Vows to Eat Pizza Every Day for a Year

Slice of pizza

Many ambitious fellows have thought, "I bet I could eat pizza for 365 days straight." But they usually abandon the cause after spying a tempting burger, or being peer-pressured into eating more salad by their "doctor." Kyle Feeney is not one of those men. This guy is sticking to his pledge to eat a slice of pizza every day in 2015 -- and it's all in the name of an autism advocacy org.

Feeney is staging this stunt in an attempt to raise $10,000 for Autism Speaks. He's been active in the charity, which funds research and spreads awareness about autism, for 13 years, but decided to up his involvement this year with a gluttonous expedition. In addition to eating pizza daily for the calendar year, he is promising to get a tattoo of a slice of pizza if his goal of $10k is met. And if it exceeds all the way to $20k? Make that a two-slice tat.

Right now, his counter stands at a little under $1,000 but obviously there's still time. You can check out the GoFundMe page for more info (and to donate), or follow Feeney's adventures on his @team_pizza_365 Instagram.

Kristin Hunt is a Food/Drink staff writer for Thrillist, and may eat pizza for the next week straight as a sign of support. Follow her at @kristin_hunt.
