Researchers at INSEAD, the business school in France, “tracked the eating behavior of people in cities with NFL teams and measured how eating changed after victories and defeats.” Fans of losing teams tended to eat more and fattier foods, while those who rooted for the winning teams ate lighter and less food. Turns out sports defeats can impact other aspects of human behavior as well. Interested in learning more about sports psychology? Visit the library!
