(Fort Washington, PA, Friday, February 3, 2017) – “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 1,200 calories and 50 grams of fat solely in snacks. 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.
Dan Marino, NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback and Nutrisystem spokesperson, shares tips and advice.
SUPER BOWL DAY IS THE SECOND LARGEST CONSUMPTION DAY BEHIND THANKSGIVING, SO IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE THAT THE DAY AFTER IS ONE OF THE SINGLE BIGGEST DAYS FOR GUYS TO START DIETS. YOU KNOW THE DRILL … YOU GO FOR THE CHIPS, YOU GO LONG FOR THE GUACAMOLE AND YOU JUST KEEP GOING. THEN, YOU WAKE UP THE NEXT DAY AND YOU THINK, ‘MAN, I GOTTA DO SOMETHING I KNOW THAT WILL WORK. I NEED A WINNING GAME PLAN. I’VE HELPED PUT MEN’S DIETING ON THE MAP AND I GUESS IT’S WORKING, BECAUSE THE STATS ARE STAGGERING. MEN ALL OVER THE COUNTRY ARE DOING IT FOR THE SAME REASON I DID, THEY NEED A WINNING GAME PLAN.
WELL IT’S NOT JUST SUPER BOWL DAY — WHICH RUNS ON AVERAGE ABOUT TWELVE-HUNDRED CALORIES IN SNACKS ALONE — IT’S THE WHOLE FOOTBALL SEASON. BOTTOM LINE: YOU CAN’T EAT LIKE A PLAYER IF YOU’RE NOT PLAYING, BUT SOMEHOW WE SEEM TO FORGET THAT WHEN WE’RE ON THE COUCH. SO, THE DAY AFTER THE SUPER BOWL — ‘SUPER BOWL MONDAY’ IS A GREAT DAY TO GET BACK IN THE GAME!
