This weekend is yet another healthy eating test as everyone tends to bring out their best, normally unhealthy foods for the big game. Here are a few tips and tricks from us at the KewlFit office on how to avoid over doing it this weekend.
“If you are enjoying the game somewhere other than your house, make sure to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch so you don’t arrive on an empty stomach” –John
“I bring healthy snacks and fruit with me to avoid the temptation of the chicken wings and pizza” –Bobby
“I always make 2-3 dishes for our Super Bowl party that I know are healthy and low in fat. This way I know exactly what is in it and how many calories per serving it is” –Tim
“Every Super Bowl I wake up early and get a good workout in with a long cardio session. This helps me start the day off with fitness to give me more incentives not to indulge in unhealthy food during the game” –Cindy
“Every year we make it a point to play in the yard before the kickoff and even play a game of touch football during halftime. This way we are not waiting around for the game which usually results in unhealthy food choices” –Lee
“I make it a point to try things in MODERATION but will avoid the sweets. After the game we normally go on a long walk which allows the guys to talk about the game and the women to talk about...whatever it is they talk about” –Josh
“I make it a point to come to the house that we are watching the game at on a full stomach. Nothing looks good when I have already had a full healthy lunch” –Susan
“We always leave the food in the kitchen and don’t bring it in the family room by the TV. I even put the ‘grownup drinks’ outside” –Amanda
“We make it a point to cut off all alcohol AND food after halftime. At this time most people are full enough and will continue eating with the food is in front of them” –Billy
“I always have my 2 litter water jug next to me and will sip it throughout the game. This helps with food cravings as my friends always have the unhealthiest foods” Justin
“My wife and I make it a point to only ‘indulge’ on foods that were made rather than store bought. This way we still feel we are treating ourselves but on something we can’t buy at the supermarket. Always in moderation of course -Dan
"Since the game is on a sunday I don't want to suffer the stomach ache of eating bad on Monday, so I normally avoid anything I wouldn't eat during the week! -Jasmin
