3 Easy Ways To Cut Calories During The Super Bowl

It might be surprising to learn that the average person will consume over 2,700 calories during the Super Bowl. Just to keep it in perspective, 3,500 calories add up to one pound. This can have a huge impact on overall health and weight loss efforts, even for people who are regularly working out and eating right. Luckily, there are three easy ways to cut back on calories.

1. Prepare Meals and Snacks Yourself
Preparing your own snacks and meals gives you control over the calorie count. For example, you can adjust by using low fat cheese on your pizza or by using a yogurt-based dip instead of sour cream. These small changes can make a big difference in your overall calorie consumption.

2. Reduce Calories the Day Before
The day before the Super Bowl, make an effort to eat in moderation. Try having light and healthy meals. While this won't completely counteract a huge amount of calories the next day, it will have an impact on your overall calorie intake for the week.

3. Watch Where You Eat
Eating in front of the television in one of the worse things you can do for your serving size awareness. People tend to consume far more because of mindless eating. Keep most of the food in the kitchen so you need to get up each time you want an additional serving. This will help everyone be more mindful of exactly how many servings they have had.
