Whether you're cheering the Reds
at Great American Ball Park or rooting for your kid's team, nutritionists say
you'd better be careful about those trips to the concession stand. The calories
can really add-up.
A hot dog without any toppings, for instance, averages about
150 calories at most Major League stadiums.
During the seventh inning stretch, the crowd sings "buy me
some peanuts and Cracker Jacks." But you may not want them to when you realize
how they could add to your waistline. An eight-ounce bag of peanuts runs about
840 calories. An eight-ounce box of Cracker Jacks has 420 calories. That
hamburger that smells so good cooking on the grill? It'll tack-on 490 calories
to your body.
Super nachos with cheese are so good! But they're full of
1,500 calories --- and that's not including the beer that usually washes them
American Ball Park, you can find some healthier options like salads, fruit,
and bottled water. Nutritionists recommend thinking about what you'll allow
yourself to eat at a baseball stadium before you get there to make it easier to
stick to your diet.
