Halloween is a scary holiday but not many people actually think about what the scariest part of Oct. 31st is… The amount of sugar consumed!
We all know too much sugar isn’t good for us but even as adults it’s hard to resist the infinite amount of candy available during October! I used to fall into the same pattern every year. I told myself I was only going to have one Snickers bar, just one!
But then, a couple of months later, my number one New Year’s resolution was to lose the weight I gained over the holidays that all started on Halloween.
Ugh, dieting. Now that’s a scary picture!
Over the years I have developed a few strategies that have helped me and my family control ourselves.
I hope everyone enjoys a happy and healthy Halloween!
