Try this : Make popcorn, sprinkle with Parmesan, about 22 calories per tablespoon, and spray with butter or low or no-calorie imitation. Cheetos are about 320 calories for two ounces.
Considering? : A handful of trail mix featuring nuts and chocolate.
Penalty : At 160 calories per ounce, head to the end zone and do 49 touchdown dances.
Try this : Skip the chocolate and focus on the nuts or eat one piece at a time to slow you down because even nuts alone, though healthy, are still high in calories (164 for an ounce of almonds).
Wings ‘n’ things
Considering? : Buffalo Wild Wings dipped in ranch dressing.
Penalty : Do “The Wave” some 6,480 times to make up for more than 1,000 calories if you nibble six wings with two servings of dressing per piece.
Try this : Shave off at least a third of the calories by baking, rather than frying, your own chicken wings, and save more by shunning the skin and dressing.
Considering? : A Sloppy Joe sandwich.
Penalty : Climb the stairs at SunLife Stadium for just under an hour.
Try this: Use lean ground beef and sugar-free ketchup or similar sauce. Use less meat by adding chopped veggies like onions, peppers and broccoli.
Considering? : Outback Baby Back Ribs.
Penalty : A full order, with its fatty meat and sugary barbecue sauce, has 1,156 calories and will require 123 minutes of conditioning.
Try this : Make your own ribs and enjoy the sauce, too, but trim the fat and begin cooking sans sauce. Use a dry rub for flavor and finish with a lighter brushing of sauce.
Brews and soda
Considering? : High-calorie beer, like Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and its big boy count of 330 calories per bottle.
Penalty : Make like San Fran coach Jim Harbaugh, or his older brother, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, and coach the game for 211 minutes.
Try this: Micro-light beers, like Beck’s, Michelob Ultra, Budweiser Select , Miller Lite or others. They generally contain fewer than 100 calories per 12-ounce bottle.
Considering? : Pepsi, which halftime entertainer Beyoncé is shilling in the commercials.
Penalty : Dance to Beyoncé’s music for 57 minutes if you swig three 12-ounce cans (each contains 100 calories).
Try this : You could opt for diet soda but you’re still getting chemicals. How about low, or no-calorie drinks such as water, flavored seltzer or unsweetened iced tea?
