Super Bowl Sunday the 2nd Biggest Day for Excessive Eating and Overindulgence

New York Bariatric Group Provides Long Term Weight Loss Solutions Through Safe & Innovative Types of Bariatric Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY  – Super Bowl Sunday is the favorite unofficial holiday of the year for hundreds of millions of Americans. Alarmingly though, it’s also a day for excessive eating and overindulgence, ranking 2nd only to Thanksgiving in terms of food consumption according to the American Institute of Food Distribution.

The New York Bariatric Group wants to educate the public not only of the excessive levels of calories which can consumed in one day, but that also for many people this is more than a once per year binge, but a regular or semi-regular occurrence which they may not even realize.

The Super Bowl Sunday snacking statistics are staggering. For instance, the average American Super Bowl watcher will take in 1,200 calories during the game through snacking alone, equaling 33 billion pounds of snacks being consumed across the nation. That accounts to over 27 billion calories and 1.8 billion grams of fat just from potato chips!

There are ways to combat the extravagance though. Veggie trays, fresh salsa, and low calorie soft drinks can all help to shave off that excess intake. Staying active by getting up off the couch and taking walks can also help to counteract the indulgence.

Compulsive eaters who are the most susceptible to more regular binges such as occurs over Super Bowl Sunday may be qualified for weight loss surgery.

Weight loss surgery is now covered by many insurance policies, providing a realistic avenue for individuals facing obesity and related health issues to change their life for the better, quickly and dramatically. It’s also proven to provide the best results and success rate for long term weight loss.

Recovery times and other associated issues with bariatric surgery have also been vastly improved. Today, procedures such as the gastric sleeve and Lap-Band can be performed through one virtually scarless single incision via laparoscopic surgery.
