(Washington, DC, Wednesday, February 3, 2016) - “Super Monday,” the day after the big game and big-time eating, has become a national phenomenon and one of the top days of the year for men to start diets. What’s behind the trend and what’s your game plan?

Super Bowl Sunday is expected to be the busiest day in the pizza business and the second largest food consumption day behind Thanksgiving. During the course of the game, the average football fan is expected to eat 1200 calories and 50 grams of fat solely in snacks, including:

  • 11.2 million pounds of potato chips, which equates to 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion grams of fat;
  • 71 million pounds of avocados, mostly in guacamole; and
  • 100 million pounds of chicken wings.

So, all this calls for a game plan on “Super Monday” (the day after the big game) when men will call or visit Nutrisystem.com every 1.5 seconds making it one of the top ten diet decision days of the year.
