Super Bowl and SuperFoods: Play Smart
Date:1/25/2008

NEW YORK, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Bowl Sunday's almost here-and what better time to blow-off your new year's resolution of eating healthy and losing some weight. Right? As more than 90 million Americans-and nearly a billion worldwide-gear up to watch TV's biggest event of the year, we plan parties predicting the collapse of our new year's weight-loss goals. Not so fast!

With those big-guy pro's gearing up for Super Bowl XLII, so can you. Don't time-out from your health goals-play smart. Dr. Wendy Bazilian, author of The SuperFoodsRx Diet (Rodale/Jan 2008/ $25.95/Hardcover) can help you make savvy nutritional choices.

1. Get a game plan. Players gear up for game day...you can too. Think

about your progress and staying on track. Jot down a few key plays in

your playbook: What's my weight? When will I exercise today? If you're

hosting the party, decide what healthy items you'll serve. Or if you're

going to a friend's, plan your choices. Tackle the day with the winning

mindset.

2. Get moving. Game time is 6 pm ET. That's plenty of time for a morning

hike or a pre-game flag football game with your kids or pals. Rev up

your energy, get your game face and show your team spirit actively. You

can burn 200-300 calories in 30 minutes of activity-enough to balance

that extra slice of pizza, chili, pint of beer or dessert later.

3. Snacking SuperFoods-style. Gourmet and exciting can also be healthy and

nutritious! Add pizzazz with colorful SuperFoods vegetables, innovative

low-fat dips and scrumptious finger foods. You can spruce-up your

guacamole and be hip with mini pizzas and tasty baked tortillas chips

alongside hit-of-the-party salsa. Score a touchdown with SuperFoods

fruit-with grilled fruits, fruit kebabs and even football-shaped

watermelon slices. Party-pleasing recipes include:

-- Homemade Tortilla Chips

-- "Brocco-Mole"

-- Salsa Bean Dip

-- Toasted Nuts and Seeds

-- Turkey (Or Tofu) Meatballs

-- Four Bean Chili

-- Greek Salad Roll-Ups

4. Show your football fashion savvy. Planning on wearing the oversized

jersey of your favorite player? Don't! A baggy team jersey makes it

easier to get off track. Wear jeans or fitted pants with your logo

gear. And absolutely do not wear loose-fitting, elastic waistband

sweatpants! These allow you to expand as you go ... dieter's disaster!

Be victorious with a good offensive and defensive strategy going into the game. Don't be intercepted and keep focused on the healthy win.
