Tricks To Manage Your Treats During Halloween

Trick or TreatOne of the most significant diet dangers revolves around sugar consumption. Problems arise from riding on a sugar roller coaster. When you binge on sugar, you crave more and your body slows down. Sugar binges cause a drop in serotonin, a chemical in the brain that regulates sleep and appetite. A lack of serotonin is often associated with depression. When you are deprived of serotonin, you won’t feel calm and in control.

A typical full-sized candy bar can contain up to 40 grams of sugar! This is problematic because several studies have shown that excess sugar in the diet contributes to increased risk of developing heart disease and diabetes, increased triglycerides, weight gain and malnutrition. Halloween candy is also chock full of saturated and trans fats as well; both linked to increased risk of heart attack and stroke.

Keep the candy out of the house for as long as possible. That means you should buy your "pass-out" candy on Halloween and avoid purchasing varieties that you know you or your kids love.

Have a meal replacement shake before sampling the candy.

Let yourself have a treat. Substitute Healthy Protein Bars instead of a typical candy bar.

Opt for gluten-free protein bars to help curb your appetite and control blood sugar.
