NFL fans take a pounding [infographic]

While NFL athletes battle it out on the field, their fans have a battle of their own: the bulge.

What happened the day after the NFL’s two best teams went head to head last year? Orders for Nutrisystem’s men’s program doubled, the weightloss product provider says.
