How to Survive Halloween Candy

Halloween has to be one of the toughest times to avoid sweets, along with Christmas of course.  There are so many delicious treats circling my office and also just whenever I am out, people seem to be in the candy-filled spirit!  If you are like me and trying to eat well, I thought I would share some tips to avoid binging on sugar this Halloween:

Buy your trick-or-treater candy the day of:  This way, you won't be tempted to eat candy leading up to the 31st and you can get it out of your house just as quickly as it came in.

Keep it closed:  If you have to buy your goodies ahead of time, don't open the box and think, "oh I will just have one".  Yeah right.  If you are like me, one turns into 27.  Keep it closed and out of sight.

Buy non-faves:  Think of candy you don't really like and get that stuff.  Hate sour stuff?  Buy it.  Allergic to peanuts? Buy it.  That way you won't be tempted to nosh on candy you don't like/can't eat.

Avoid sales:  Yes, Halloween candy goes on ridiculous sales on November 1st.  But, just because it's 75% off, doesn't mean you have to have it.  Resist.  Buy a nail polish instead;)

Let yourself have fun:  Obviously you don't want to completely avoid candy for Halloween.  That's no fun.  Also, I think if you don't allow yourself some, you might go overboard and indulge later.  I checked into it, and some of the lower calorie or lower point candies are:  Jolly Ranchers, licorice, Tootsie Rolls and Skittles.  All in moderation of course:)

I hope this helps!  Oh and for those of you who watched my I Heart Fall Tag video and wanted to see our rocker family costume, voila:

T Bone and The Parent$.  ROCK ON!! :)
