Hehe, it totally is a trigger. Football and food just go together. I have managed to make some of my indulgences a little healthier, but I still love my vegan buffalo nuggets on Sundays. What's different now is that I plan for them, so I just eat lighter the day before and the day after and maybe even work out a little harder ;).

I agree that football season is a food trigger, but YOU can change your very own traditions! Some excellent suggestions below from others.

My personal favorite is making healthier versions. I like this because my belief is that only a diet DEPRIVES me of food. A healthy lifestyle includes moderation in all things AND healthier habits overall, including eating ...

Good luck!!

Try a veggie tray with low-cal dressing.

Keep a sense of humor. Remember, laughing burns calories too!

Laugh until it hurts! It's one of the few things in life that's still free!!

Any effort is better than no effort!

Oy, I started a silly ritual in college (eating Cheetos during every game) and ONLY during football season. I never touch them the rest of the year. Every time I forget to buy them or think it is silly to eat them... my team loses! Thus today, my Colts lost because I wanted to stay away from the Cheetos. I should have just ate them & allotted my calories for it!

I think it akin to the Pavlovian theory for dogs!

Why do I crave nachos, chicken wings and French fries during football season? This is so tough.
Any help out there?
