Halloween can be a scary time of year for those on a weight loss journey. Here is how to keep Halloween from sabotaging your weight loss efforts.

Buy the Candy a Few Days Before

How many times have you bought your candy at the start of October only to find that you must replenish it several times before Halloween? Buy candy a few days before October 31st so that the only ones who eat it are the little ghosts and goblins.

Don’t Get Your Favorites

If you’re a chocolate lover, give away Skittles® or Twizzlers®. This doesn’t mean all candy you give out has to be unappealing to you, but buying just one type you like in a limited quantity might be easier. Remember: If you do have the urge for a sweet treat, the Flex with Revolex program allows for 1 oz. of dark chocolate per week.

Leave the Candy on the Porch

Leave the bowl out for trick-or-treaters to take at the end of the night. If the kids empty the bowl because no one is watching, it will just be less for you to eat later.

Give Out Nonfood “Treats”

Another option is to offer trick-or-treaters small toys, stickers, pencils, erasers — even sidewalk chalk — instead of candy.
