This is a tough one. I think moderation is the best choice. Ballpark foods go with the game. Just eat less. Plan for it in your day and make sure you get a workout of some kind. Park 10 minutes away and walk at a fast pace to and from and this will help burn off a few calories.Get up and walk to get your food items rather than getting them from vendors also helps.

KAYBEE37,

Thanks so much for the suggestions. This is so crazy, I really didn't think about taking in my own food. We've got season tickets so we do take our own water to drink but I never thought about taking food and I see people sitting around us who do that all the time. Thanks for the great suggestion!

I usually try to take the highest calorie item I can find or I'll double the calorie count on the BP food so I don't underestimate. I know that double counting can be a bit tricky, especially for the rest of the day but it's worked out pretty well so far.

I'm glad the Cards are still in it also. The game last Sunday was so much fun!
Thanks for the reply.

Hi Lynn. That's a tough one. I don't get to go to games often because I live too far away, but my family goes a lot. Sometimes they bring their own snacks (like pumpkin seeds), so if you did that, you'd know the calorie counts. Do they have soft pretzels? Those are not big on nutrients, but usually they're better for you than things like nachos.

As for tracking the foods there, what I always do when I don't know the nutritional info is to search through the tracker until I find something that sounds similar. Then I just put that on my tracker. It may not be perfect, but at least I've done my best to track it. Hope you get to go to lots of games next year (and I'm so glad that this year is not over yet for the redbirds.) Go Cards!

I need some help, what do you guys eat when you're at the ball park? We're there every homestand on the weekend and I can't figure out what food would be the best for me to eat or how many calories to count.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated,
Thanks,
Lynn
