Make a plan to deal with the fun-size candy bars. Have a mental note of what you are consuming and count every carb. Plan out some fun activities that don’t center around food. Find a Ghost Tour in your city, go to a costume contest, go see a spooky movie, visit a Haunted House, or go to a corn maze.
Buy a large pack of sugarless gum in different fun flavors. Keeping something sweet in your mouth and keeping the jaws busy will help you say no to the Reese’s.
Eat Dinner on Time
Don’t skip dinner on Halloween, or ever for that matter. Fill up on a healthy meal, a soup, and a big salad whether you head out, or stay in, for trick-or-treating.
Stash the Loot
Don’t buy candy until the last possible minute and then buy your least favorite kinds. Next, stash your loot away in your upper cabinets or in the extra fridge in the garage. When it’s out of sight, it’s out of mind!
Say “No” to Left Overs
As tempting as it might be, get rid of the leftovers right away. Give them to your guests as a party favor as they leave or package them up and take them to the office or give them to a shelter or food pantry. Also donate your extra candy.
