Curb the Candy Craze!

So, here we are on Halloween and the candy is flowing by the tonnage! I wanted to write a blog post to encourage you guys to stay on your diet and to not just throw it out the window. It is worth it to keep the goal of weight loss and to not eat candy, than to eat candy and have a weight gain. We will talk about how to curb the candy craze and maybe give you guys some alternatives to help you guys get through today. Let's get started with how to curb the candy craze!

1. Alternatives to Candy
We have many alternatives to candy if you can't curb your candy craze. The first alternative is to eat a popsicle. Popsicles have some sugar, but not too much. You don't need to feel guilty for eating a popsicle. There are natural juice popsicles as well. The second is to eat a cookie. They have sugar, but they won't break you. The last alternative is juice. You can drink juice and most juices have all natural sugar.

2. Drink Water
Drink water and help curb the candy craze. If you drink water, then you can help to keep from being hungry. Your body will want to eat and fill up on junk food, but please don't give in to the temptation of wanting to eat candy.

3. Sugarfree Gum
There are lots of good gum choices that you can eat and not feel guilty. By eating gum, you can trick your body into thinking that you are eating something sweet, but you are not. There are little to no sugar in sugarfree gum. Grab a stick of gum and stick it to the candy craze!

4. Work Out
By working out, you forget that you want to eat candy. Get out of the house and go for a run or go to the gym for a good long while to really get tired out. You will burn a ton of calories and you will not be craving the candy anymore. Put on your gym shoes and GO!

5. Eat Good
Eat a good and hearty meal. Instead of eating junk food and consuming empty calories, eat a good and hearty meal. Eat some chicken, vegetables, and drink some milk. So many people are going to want to eat junk just because everyone else is. You do not have to give in. Resist and do something good for yourself!

6. Eat Protein
Eat a good amount of protein for dinner and in your snacking. Instead of consuming terrible calories and carbs, eat some protein that will fill you up and keep you full for quite a while. Protein is power packed and is sure to keep you from the candy craze.

7. Go To Bed Early
This tip is probably the biggest one of them all. Go to bed early and get some good sleep. By going to bed early, you lower the risk of gaining weight because you will not be eating while you sleep. You will be sleeping and you will feel good the next day because you will get some great rest and sleep!

Please read these tips again and share these tips with your family and friends! Just because it is Halloween doesn't mean that you have to splurge and throw your diet and weight loss out the window. Your co-workers and friends will want to share their candy with you. Just politely say, "no thank you" and continue in your weight loss. I hope that you guys have a great and safe Halloween!
