Question: What is the "Super Bowl Indicator" and what can I do to benefit from it?
Investors like to find patterns that accurately predict a rise or fall in stock prices. The problem with this behavior is that patterns can be found almost anywhere if you look hard enough. One highly-celebrated pattern, aptly named The Super Bowl Indicator, receives much attention every year when the final two football teams rise to the championship bowl game from which the indicator takes its name.

Recently, a nutrition professor lost 27 pounds when he went on a Twinkie Diet. Instead of eating meals, he ate a Twinkie every three hours. Sound absurd? Definitely. But he was trying to prove the point that it's the number of calories you eat, not necessarily what you eat. Limiting himself to less than 1,800 calories a day, he was able to drop 27 lbs and bring down his body mass index from overweight to normal. All this in ten weeks. Of course, I don't suggest the Twinkie Diet for anyone, but it's a classic case of counting calories and making them count.
The holidays are fast approaching and some of us may dread the extra pounds we'll be donning from endless parties and cocktails. Our wallets may be deflating from gift buying, but don't let that stop you from staying in shape. Here are some cheap and free ways to maintain your health and avoid the holiday bloat.

Money Saving Tips
Julia Newman, a 24 year old law student in New York, made headlines with her blog Buns of Steal which documents her quest to acquire free gym workouts for an entire year. Her plan is to "hop" around the five boroughs, taking advantage of every free trial and coupon she can find. When asked how she felt about this concept of exercise on a budget, Lesley Voth, author of Simply Fantastic: Living Better On Less, agreed with Julia on the fact that visiting gyms in your area on a trial basis gives you the advantage when negotiating a good deal. "On the other hand," she says, "I see no sense in traipsing around the city, or countryside, looking for a free deal at a gym."
The contributing writers on Julia's blog may disagree with Lesley; however, the price in gas, public transportation and time spent traveling are far more costly than any savings from gym hopping. If her PR stunts provide a book deal, Julia Newman may be laughing us all the way to the bank, but for now, there are many alternative ways to keep your fitness routine cheap.
