Bubba Gump Jambalaya = 375 Minutes of Preparing, Cooking, Serving, and Cleaning up After the Super Bowl Party
That's more than six hours of cooking, preparing and cleaning. Yes,
Bubba Gump is a chain, and the Jambalaya has 1,100 calories. Jambalaya
is typically made with chicken, shrimp and andouille sausage sautéed
with peppers, onions, rice and spicy sauce.
Diet Pro: I just made a healthy jambalaya with boneless chicken breast
and brown rice. That’s the way to go.
Outback Baby Back Ribs, Full Order = 123 Minutes of Team Practice and Conditioning
Ribs are tasty, but they’re packed with calories—as if you didn’t know.
They’re fatty, and the sauce is sugary.
Diet Pro: Try making them yourself. Trim all visible fat before and
after cooking, and instead of coating your ribs with an excessive
amount of sauce beforehand, partially cook them loaded with seasonings,
brush them lightly with the sauce, and then finish cooking.
Four Bacon-Wrapped-Smokies = 156 Minutes Being the Team Mascot
Little sausages wrapped in bacon—popping just four in your mouth will
cost you 156 minutes of jumping around and acting a bit foolish (the
good news is you’ll be wearing a costume.)
Diet Pro: If you need to eat some type of bacon-wrapped hors d’oeuvres,
go with Applegate Farms Organic Hickory Smoked Uncured Turkey Bacon.
It’s only 35 calories per slice. Hebrew National Beef Franks in a
Blanket are 60 calories each.
Three Pepsis = 57 Minutes of Dancing to Beyonce During the Halftime Show
Each 12-ounce can is 100 calories. So to burn off just three Pepsis you
need to dance for more than an hour to a Beyonce song. Have you heard
her music? Have you danced for an hour straight?
Diet Pro: Water, flavored seltzer, unsweetened ice tea. There are so
many low or no-calorie drinks. Find one that works for you.
