Watch the Sugar

Halloween is coming next week so this is a perfect time to remind you to watch your sugar consumption.  It's so easy to just nibble here and there on your Halloween stash without being aware of the extra calories you are adding to your day. How many of us have to buy more candy right before Halloween because we've eaten too much and we no longer have enough for the trick-or-treators?

Well, you're not alone. Most people do exactly that, and Halloween marks the beginning of the downward spiral into the holidays where we just keep eating too many treats.  So be wary of your sugar consumption.  If you've been hard at work trying to lose weight, or to maintain your weight then stay true to your goals and be aware of the addition calories that are lurking in the coming months.

You don't have to be a total abstainer either. You don't want to turn sugar or holiday treats into the forbidden fruit, or take all the fun out of family dinners. Just remember moderation! Have a small amount and enjoy every bite. Go ahead and have a fun-size candy from your Halloween stash for dessert, just don't have 10 of them...1-2 is fine, and will nip your craving in the bud so you can carry on with your day!

Happy Halloween to All!!
