NFL losses = extra pounds!

by admin


Atlanta fans suffered devastating losses when both the Falcons and Braves lost crucial games in one night earlier this month. What’s worse, we may have some extra pounds to show for it.

Researchers at international business school INSEAD tracked food consumption of people in NFL cities. Those with a losing team consumed 16 percent more saturated fat than winners. People develop an addiction for high-fat foods to stimulate the release of dopamine within the brain.

When our teams lose, our self-esteem suffers and we cope by eating more. Let’s hope the Falcons keep winning … for our waistlines’ sake!
