Eat Right

2 easy ways to cut back on your Halloween candy consumption

Before you dig in the candy bowl, we’ve got crazy cinchy ways to stop you in your sugarcoated tracks.

Think before you eat
Raise your hand if you’ve ever accidentally devoured, say, half a big bag of M&M’s while studying or six cookies while you were watching the tube. Hey, it happens. But with candy being everywhere right now, all that sugar can really add up (check out Sugar Stacks for a reminder). Take a deep breath and ask yourself if you really want to eat those Reese’s. And then...

Practice portion control  
It sounds obvi, but when the sweet stuff is everyone, it’s easy to make multiple trips to the chocolate-filled pumpkin. If you must down a Kit Kat, choose the Fun Size one...and just one. Remember: Halloween kicks off the holiday season, so you don’t have to finish off the candy corn Gingerbread season is right around the corner!

We love Fitsugar’s guide to 100 calorie portions of candy. Spoiler alert: They’re a LOT smaller than you might think!
