This is the time of year that many people start to lose control of their weight. For many first comes Halloween, then Thanksgiving then Christmas and New Years. All within a 2 months span. It’s deadly. If you aren’t watching what you are eating or have a sound diet strategy then all this food and calories can add up.
These treats look so small. How can they have that many calories in them?

Too many people are packing on the pounds from their left over candy. What a great way to set you back on your workout goals. If you can brave the temptation here are a couple ways to get rid of the candy.
- Donate it to a hospital or old folks home.
- Take them to work. At my work they would be gone in sever hours. People are tempted easily and I won’t be gaining the weight.
- Homeless shelters Care Packages for the troops.
- Local Fire department
- The Church
- Salvation Army
- Give out healthy snacks (warning: you house may get egged)
- Give out pencils or small toys, I’ve seen slinkies and playdough.
- My dentist neighbour use to give out toothbrushes.
- Packages of gum that you like.
- Buy small packages of candy and only open those you need. Return the leftovers that aren’t opened the following day.
If you aren’t able to part with it you could always put it away in the freezer. It will last longer and you will be less tempted to eat it. I still have some in there from last year. Take a piece out here and there and you won’t do the damage all at once. I heard this from somewhere but I can’t seem to remember where.
Have a great and safe Halloween
