ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Now that the Rams first game of the season is in the books, look back to yesterday.  Did you eat a lot, or eat things you normally don't eat? 

There's new research that looked into how sports influence our eating habits.

Licensed family therapist Kelly Devere talked about what the study found.

Devere discussed the correlation between winning and losing and eating more or less.

According to research, people in cities with a losing football team ate about 16% more saturated fat compared to their usual Monday consumption.

People in cities with a winning football team, on the other hand, ate about 9% less saturated fat compared to their usual consumption.
