Simple Tricks to Avoid the Halloween Candy Binge

Halloween is right around the corner and undoubtably you've seen all the candy everywhere.

Halloween Candy BingeHalloween is right around the corner and undoubtedly you’ve seen candy everywhere. And while totally ignoring the sweet stuff is probably not going to happen, knowing the tricks to treating yourself this Halloween will help you enjoy the season without going overboard.

- Size matters. Fun size still packs a punch. The average fun size candy bar has 70 calories and 10 grams (2 ½ teaspoons) of sugar.
- Everything in moderation. A sweet treat every now and then is good. However overindulging or binging on sugar-rich candy could lead to health consequences in the future. 
- Out of sight. Don’t keep sweets out on the counter or on your desk. If it’s within sight you’re more like to want to have it.  
- Savor it. Choose a piece of candy you truly enjoy and savor the flavor. Trying to avoid sweets can lead to overeating later on. Make it worth your while. 
- Freeze it. Piles of candy can be extremely tempting. Portion out your stash and freeze some of it. Candy bars freeze surprisingly well.
