Ready to eat? Super Bowl Ranks a Top Day for Calorie Consumption

Last year, more than 108 million people tuned into the Super Bowl. While some devoted fans sat on the edge of their seat watching play by play, many of us gathered around the buffet table featuring an endless supply of dips, chips, desserts, and of course, pizza. With our craving for football, fun and friends has come an insatiable appetite for food…and a lot of it.

 

Why $1.50 extra per day is worth it

Researchers say we now know how much more expensive healthy diets are compared to unhealthy diets - $1.50 per day. The reason healthier options like fruits and vegetables cost more than processed meats, snacks and grains is due to the current food policies in place, supporting inexpensive, but high volume production of the unhealthier fare.

 

Eat Healthier with These Changes

When you commit to healthy eating, it means more than choosing fresh veggies over French fries. It's changing the way you eat, too.

Along with the American Diabetes Association, The Center for Diabetes Management at Hillcrest offers these guidelines for healthy eating:

·         Choose a variety of healthy foods, including lean meats, fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains and non-fat dairy products.
