De-Bulk Your Super Bowl Calorie Festival

This is advice, of which I try not to do a lot.  I want readers to look at all the facts and make decisions for themselves.

But I ran across this on the USA Today Fitness and Food blog (Feb 5):
"imagine a typical Super Bowl party where over a three- to four-hour game, you eat four slices of pepperoni pizza (1135 calories), grab a beer (150 calories), eat six chicken wings (400 calories), then grab a couple dozen tortilla chips with some cheese salsa (600 calories). The total for just that short time: 2,285 calories."
You can have a rip-roaring time without that huge calorie load.

Enjoy the game, not the oral intake.
