(WTVM) -

People love to eat wings, pizza, and burgers before or during football games. Extra food at tailgates makes you up to 10 lbs. heavier post-season.

And a recent study says fans of the losing NFL team eat even more saturated fats than the winning teams. 

Local fitness experts explain the do's and don'ts of eating, and easy gameday exercises.

For example, did you know that you can use your chair to do pushups and squats?  Or that to burn off two beers, you'd have to walk up 6,000 stadium steps?

They say the average person consumes 1,200 more calories than normal at just one tailgate party. So some people exercise on the weekdays to give themselves leeway on the weekends.
