In all seriousness the stadium foods I remember are absolutely horrid calorie-wise but I haven't been to a game in quite awhile. The last time I did the ticket-takers confiscated my mothers bottle of water like she was trying to smuggle drugs - lol!

A small amount of peanuts would be ok.

Also, a soft pretzel isn't horrible.

I know the baseball stadium here has some healthier choices (california rolls, salads, etc...)

Or if you really feel the need to treat yourself, how about a lemon ice?

Hot dog (normal, not footlong) + bun = 320 calories, give or take. Most toppings are low or no-cal, so knock yourself out.

I think the whole thing about stadium food is to exercise restraint--as long as you eat in moderation and don't stuff your face with food for 4 hours, then you'll do okay.

Just try to stay away from greasy foods, high sugar items and a lot of alcohol--they pack a lot of unnecessary calories....

Or, eat an apple or banana before going into the stadium, it will help to keep your stomach full and you won't eat as much! ;-)

Water is the best drink! ;-)

it's not just the actual ingredients or the way these foods are prepared that's unhealthy-it's also the lack of sanitation one witnesses a lot at the vending areas. i eat before i go and bring something to leave in the car to eat afterwards.

If you just want to eat because you associate it with ball games, one thing that can be not-so-horrible is cotton candy. At Wrigley Field in Chicago, a whole bag (with 3 "balls" of cotton candy in it) is only 150 calories, and it takes a long time to eat!

I'm not advocating it as "healthy," just throwing out a suggestion that won't ruin the whole day of dieting (unless you're doing low-sugar!)
