Super Bowl Sunday's Caloric Damage

What you need to do to burn off the beer.

Drank a Bud yesterday? That’ll Be 395 burpees today.  

While recent research from the independent market research firm NPD Group found that veggies are the most popular game day food for the Super Bowl, we’re betting that you didn’t just snack on celery sticks and baby carrots.

Considering that the average fan consumes 2,400 calories during the game, it’s time to face the facts and get back on track for the week. Here is 2,400-calories worth of the other most popular (and less fitness-friendly) food served up for the big game and what it’s going to take to negate it.

Calorie counts are based on company nutritional information. Activity MET values provided by the National Cancer Institute and the Compendium of Physical Activities Tracking Guide were used for calculations based on a 180-pound, 6’1” male.
