Halloween Tricks-to not over-Treat

75% of an average person’s weight gain is between Halloween and New Year’s! DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT’S Too LATE……….Get your head on straight now because Halloween is FAST UPON US.

FOR PEOPLE WATCHING THEIR WEIGHT HALLOWEEN CAN BE GHOULISH! THIS HOLIDAY IS COMPLETELY BASED ON FOOD!

OBVIOUSLY, IT IS BEST NOT TO OVERINDULGE, BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO REFRAIN FROM INDULGING ENTIRELY- PRACTICE MODERATION.

IF YOU CHOSE TO HAVE CANDY, TRY TO REDUCE YOUR CALORIES FROM ANOTHER MEAL OR SNACK THAT DAY, BUT DO NOT SKIP YOUR MEALS TO ALLOT FOR A CANDY BINGE.  YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE YOU AND YOUR KIDS EAT A PROPER MEAL BEFORE HEADING OUT TO TRICK-OR-TREAT SO YOU WILL BE LESS LIKELY TO OVERREAT THE “BAD“ STUFF. IF IT ISN’T MEAL TIME THEN HAVE A BROTH BASED SOUP, SALAD OR FRUIT SNACK.

IF YOU ARE BUYING CANDY FOR TRICK OR TREATERS TRY CHOOSING HEALTHIER OPTIONS OR PURCHASE CANDY THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE. YOU WILL BE LESS LIKELY TO EAT IT IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT.

BUY YOUR CANDY AT THE VERY LAST MINUTE, DO NOT OVERBUY AND GET RID OF THE LEFTOVERS AS SOON AS THE TRICK OR TREATERS ARE GONE.

BEST CHOICES:

LOLLIPOPS ARE SATISFYING, TAKE A LONG TIME TO EAT AND HAVE NO FAT!

FOR CHOCOLATE CRAVINGS, TRY TOOTSIE ROLLS AS A GOOD LOW-FAT OPTION. (12 MIDGETS HAVE ONLY 130 CALORIES) OR PEPPERMINT PATTIES WITH ONLY 50 CALORIES.

TWIZZLERS HAVE ONLY 75 CALORIES FOR 2. BUY THEM INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED.

RICE KRISPIE TREATS COME IN A MINI SIZE FOR HALLOWEEN. 2 BARS HAVE ONLY 90 CALORIES.

NERDS CONTAIN ONLY 60 CALORIES PER TABLESPOON.

2ND TIER CHOICES:

MOUNDS, M&MS, ROLLOS  & BUTTERFNGERS (1 FUN SIZE BAR HAS 100 CALORIES)

AVOID EXCESS! ONE BUTTERFINGER BAR ISN’T SO BAD. IT IS WHEN WE EAT TOO MANY THAT OUR WAISTLINE STARTS TO EXPAND! MAKE CHOICES YOU CAN WAKE UP TO THE NEXT DAY & NOT FEEL AS IF THIS HOLIDAY WAS A SET BACK.
