Super Bowl: The Second Biggest Day For Food Consumption
This weekend is Super Bowl Sunday and event that some consider an unofficial holiday; and apart from being a big day in sports its also a big day to stuff your mouth with food. The Super Bowl is a day fans watch two of the best teams in the NFL go head-to-head on the grid iron, but for others it's a good day to spend with friends and family and food. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture the Super Bowl is the second biggest day for food consumption in the United States after Thanksgiving and its usually not the healthiest choice. "Super Bowl Sunday has to be pizza and wings thats a must." "Carne asada maybe some drinks with my dad," "Definitely wings, wings and cheese sticks cant have a Super Bowl without wings and cheeses sticks." "We have our wings we have our pizza some do the coke some do beer, snacking all that sums up to a big amount of calories." Do you ever wonder how long it would take you to get rid of these calories? If you ate six wings , its about 510 calories... Three slices of pizza at about 900 calories... Three cans of soda pop at 300 calories and a bag of chips at 500 calories That totals 2,330 calories that you now need to work off. "theres plenty of machines you can do it with its the time you need to do it to burn the calories off." To burn off the more than 2 thousand calories I would have to ride this stationary bike for more than eight hours and it doesn't stop there. If you don't like the bike you can run 20 miles, seven hours of weight training or three hours on the elliptical machine and it doesn't mean you have to have a boring Super Bowl party. "you can still grill outside but instead of grilling the bad foods we can grill chicken grilled veggies instead of chips you can eat veggies with dressing." So remember, the foods you choose will affect how long you may have to be at the gym. When you do exercise, Danny Silva warns that you need to drink a lot of water to get your metabolism up and to stay hydrated.
