Super Bowl Foods the Doc Won't Recommend

Beer

It wouldn't be a Super Bowl party without beer. If you're heading to the keg, keep in mind that the equivalent of two and a half cans, just 30 ounces, will put you on the treadmill, jogging at 5 mph, for roughly 40 minutes. Does this inspire you to run the other way? Me neither.

Keg of Beer

Beer, as most know, is not the healthiest of beverages. The average 2.5 cans of regular beer will slide down an extra 369 calories. Imagine how much you're drinking when there's a keg at your party.

Peanut Butter Pie

If ever there was a Super Bowl-worthy dessert it's peanut butter pie. And it's so simple. Get a bowl and get a blender. Add one 8 ounce package of cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup milk, 1 packaged of whipped topping. Blend it all together, then throw it in a pie crust and put it in the freezer.

Peanut Butter Pie

It may be easy to make, but it's not so easy to work off. If you plan on eating a piece of the PB pie, find a mountain and go hiking for an hour.

Don't worry about eating those leftover slices right out of the freezer. The extra fat gained from each 422-calorie slice will keep you warm.

But calories are not the whole of it.

"These foods are full of salt," said Ayoob. "Between that and the beer, and boy these guys are going to be retaining [water]."

Keep in mind that you could take a reasonable sampling of our Super Bowl foods and eat about 5,000 calories that day. Or you could just take a glass of water and sit down with the bacon explosion roll and pack on the same amount.
