Super Bowl Snacks or My Nutrition Goals? What Does a Girl Do?!

Football. Ugggghhhh. My hubby spent the first handful of our fifteen years of marriage attempting to teach me about football. The poor guy. One of his biggest passions is like a foreign language that I’ll never grasp. I’m just not wired to have any appreciation for the sport whatsoever. I think he’s made peace with it (I even fell asleep attending a Bronco’s game in person, once.) Even when our kids have played flag football, I can only pay attention when they’re in the game. And I’m sitting there praying they don’t get hurt, the whole time. It is what it is.

Can you tell I really love football?

So it’s Super Bowl Sunday in a couple days. And while I may not give a flying lick (what a funny phrase!) about watching the game, I always appreciate the commercials. The best part of the Super Bowl is, hands down, the food! My plan is to do an intermittent fast on Sunday, and then have my weekly indulgence meal during the game. I’m pretty excited about that!

If you’re not due for your weekly indulgence meal, you can still maintain your weight loss nutrition strategy while enjoying some of the Super Bowl food. Here are some tips:

  • Respect serving sizes.
  • Keep a food journal of everything you are eating. (I like the myfitnesspal app)
  • Fill 1/2 of your plate with veggies, 1/4 with protein, and the other 1/4 with side dishes.
  • Stop eating when your stomach is content, not stuffed.
  • Don’t continue to snack through the whole game.
  • When the food is finished, focus on enjoying the game and the company (Or the book you’re reading while everyone else enjoys the game)

I’ve compiled the following list of high protein/low carb foods that you can enjoy free of guilt:

chicken wings
tortilla chips, guacamole
deviled eggs

I hope you enjoy the game, and I hope that your favorite team wins! Enjoy the food, and savor the opportunity to apply self-control! You’ve got this!

Talk to you soon!

What's up everyone?! My name is Amy Bellamy and I am a wife, a mom to three boys, and a certified personal trainer and nutritionist. I am an avid distance runner and love lifting weights. As someone who has struggled with being overweight in the past, I know how hard it can be to find the right process that works for you to lose weight. The frustration of starting and stopping and starting again, wears on you mentally and physically. That's why I want to share with you what I have found to be a game changer for me in my weight loss journey. Through experience and study, I’ve learned the tools required for losing weight permanently. I have the education and experience to help you overcome any insecurities you have, from that worry of everyone looking at you because you don't know how to use the exercise equipment in a gym environment, or simply not knowing how to use what you have at home. I also have the training to help you stay focused on your goals when that plate full of cookies is staring you down and you find yourself saying "Well, I will allow myself to eat just one" and end up eating the whole plate (oh, the number of times I have been there). I’m excited to help you find the right approach to your food consumption, give you the template on how to build a strategy that works specifically for you and then help you stick with it. On top of that, I will show you how to help you increase your flexibility, strength, muscle growth, cardiorespiratory abilities and achieve your fitness goals. Let me help you in your commitment to living your healthiest lifestyle and lose those last 15 pounds for good!
