Study: Packers wins will keep their fans healthier

Study: Packers wins will keep their fans healthier

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Sep 5, 2013

It's an old adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

What about "A win by the Pack means a few fewer snacks?"

OK, perhaps not the best literary attempt there, but it's meant to illustrate a study done by the Psychological Science Journal.

"On the Mondays following a Sunday National Football League (NFL) game, saturated-fat and food-calorie intake increase significantly in cities with losing teams, decrease in cities with winning teams, and remain at their usual levels in comparable cities without an NFL team or with an NFL team that did not play," the study says.

That should hopefully mean a healthy year for Packers fans, especially if the path leads to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Of course, just keeping fit like the Packers players on the roster that you see in the slideshow above will help, too.
