Whenever you walk into a bingo hall, you will most likely notice that a large percentage of the people are overweight. Obesity is reaching epidemic proportions all over the United States, and the fact that you are playing bingo does not mean that you can let yourself go. On the contrary, if you decide that you want to play bingo seriously, then it makes sense to go on a diet, since at the bingo games you will be sitting most of the time and probably eating. When you do go play bingo, then make sure you go on a small diet, just to keep in shape.
When going on a bingo diet, what would be preferable of course to go on an all out diet and to watch what you eat all the time, but that is not always possible. But what you could do is to limit the snacks that you eat at the bingo hall. Usually the first thing that comes to hand are chips and other high fat snacks, but you must be careful with these, since they will inevitably make you fat. Take some fresh cut vegetables, like celery or carrots. Some trail mix might be good as well, but watch your portions, since it a high fat snack, albeit healthier than other things.Written by Chuck Roach, Editor 08.08.2005
