Rooting for a losing team can actually cause you to gain weight. This is horrible news if you happen to be a fan of the Jets.

According to a study reported on CBS Minnesota,

After a sports team loses, fans of that team eat 16 percent more saturated fats than they usually do.

Fans of winning teams apparently are getting thinner, too. The study found the winning fans ate 9 percent less saturated fat.

Fans have such a deep attachment to their NFL teams that losing can trigger a food binge, the study said.
