Did you watch the Super Bowl on Sunday? Go to a Super Bowl party? Indulge in some Super Bowl food?
You are not alone.
Super Bowl ratings are high and so is the food consumption. For a three hour, or more, broadcast that is just over 8% (about 12 minutes) of actual play, the calories consumed are more than any other day of the year, except Thanksgiving.
On average the Super Bowl party comes with an extra 2,400 high fat, high salt, highly processed calories. And if your team loses? More bad news. You are likely to eat more. The average American will eat 6,000 calories during the day, on Super Bowl Sunday. People buy the most high calorie foods for Superbowl Sunday.
If you are feeling like you might have overindulged what can you do?
Fill up on vegetables. Eat more vegetable based soups and green salads for lunch and dinner. Don’t skip breakfast. Drink more water. Get active. Start today. Don’t wait.
You can prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes and reduce high cholesterol in 16 days with a plant based diet and even Roland Lamar Williams, St Louis Rams, Superbowl champ in 2000 says,
“On Monday after the big game, be a team player by participating in Meatless Monday, a global movement to find innovative ways to make meatless and vegetarian dishes part of our everyday culture, customs, and cuisine.”
Williams has been vegan for two years, seems like everybody is doing it.
