New You Health Tip: Practice healthy-eating this football season.

While football fans are anxiously waiting for the first kick off of the season, they may be surprised to learn that their favorite team can cause sudden weight gain. A study from the INSEAD Business School analyzed food consumption of NFL fans every Monday over two seasons. The study found that when fans watched their team lose they ate 16% more saturated fat. The study showed that the fans ate even more especially when they lost to a rival team or by a narrow margin. If you need to munch when you’re angry, be sure to surround your football nights with healthier foods to help curb your caloric intake
