Halloween: Is Candy calling your name?

Ghosts, Goblins, Gremlins … Candy … oh My! by Janice Taylor
Halloween is but two days away! Is “Candy” calling your name? She sure is a seductress!
What to do? Change your name and then …
Think Ahead!
Curb the Sugar Cravings. On Halloween or on any other day, remember that balanced meals curb sugar cravings! Therefore, do not make a candy bar your breakfast. First have a poached egg, some fruit, a slice of whole wheat toast (or healthy balanced breakfast of your choice) and then … should you indulge in a piece of candy, you will be less likely to go full tilt hog wild.
Think Outside the Candy Box. You could (yes, you could) give those adorable trick or treaters fun stickers or party favors or even rubber spiders. Now – that’s lasting fun!
Last Minute Shopping. This is one exception to the rule “be prepared.” Do NOT shop ahead of time. Do NOT keep bags of trick-or-treat candy in the house. HOLD OFF – till the very last second! That means, if you haven’t picked up candy yet, DON’T. There’s always tomorrow morning or on your way home from work tomorrow night!
Yucky vs. Yummy. Another exception to the ‘only eat what you love’ rule. Do NOT buy, store, or house candy that you like. What are you least likely to dip into? That’s your choice! Choose yucky over yummy!
Keeping YOU Honest!
Read the labels. Even those big bags of mini-bite-sized beauties have labels. Read them and know the magnitude of your sins!
Save Some! Oh boy … Now there’s a crazy concept. Even though you’ve been careful not to buy your favorite candies – nevertheless, your favorite candies have landed in front of you! How about you choose 3 pieces (or more or less … you decide) that delight your sugary soul and savor them. One piece per day. YES! Imagine … setting candy limits!
Hire Dave, the Doorman. If you can’t “handle” it, literally – as in handing out candy at the door without implementing the the “One for you, two for me” method … then delegate someone else to be the one who ‘mans’ the door and rent a doorman costume for him/her!)
The Morning After
Give “IT” Away. Bring ‘it’ to the office, give ‘it’ to a neighbor, donate ‘it’ to your church! Just be sure to get ‘it’ out of your house! (Reserve a seat at The Holiday Diet table!)
Skip the “Day After Halloween Get As Fat As You Can for 1/2 Price Sale!” May be the hardest part of Halloween for the gifted shoppers out there, but in the end, 1/2 price candy is gonna’ cost you plenty!
What’s your strategy? Seriously, what will you do after the Belly Bustin’ Bingeing Season Kick-Off? What’s your plan, your strategy to get through the holidays without gaining weight?
Spread the word, NOT the icing!
