2Medical Daily: "How Badly Will Americans Eat On Super Bowl Sunday 2015?"
"The game lasts for four hours, and researchers from Cornell University tracked grocery purchases and found the average American will eat more than 6,000 calories by the end of the day. (You'd need to run a marathon to burn off all of those calories off — that's 26.2 miles.)"

5Fitness Magazine: "5 Ways to Make Your Super Bowl Party Diet-Friendly"

7. Jillian Michaels: "Stay Healthy on Super Bowl Sunday"

Treat yourself to buffalo chicken by cutting breasts into strips, baking them in the oven until an internal temperature of 165⁰F, then tossing them in your favorite hot sauce. Dip into a yogurt-based ranch or bleu cheese spread and enjoy. On your pizza, go for a veggie topping or some meaty mushrooms and try a whole grain crust if available."
