ANOTHER SUPER BOWL STATISTIC:
As we predicted, the staggering Super Bowl statistics are out there (here, here, and here), and you can see what estimated consumption looks like for the second largest calorie intake day (behind Thanksgiving) of the year. Especially noteworthy is the number for beer consumption: 325 million gallons of beer. Men's Fitness does the math for us, and says that equates to over a gallon (!) of beer for every man, woman, and child in the United States that has an estimated population of 316 million. Of course, we're skeptical. But even cutting that number in half brings that number to half of a gallon per person, a whopping 550 calories of light beer. If your New Year's resolution to lose weight is still intact by Monday, you have beaten the odds in several categories.
But let's face it. The Super Bowl, like Thanksgiving, only comes around once a year.
