With Halloween around the corner there are sweet treats up for grabs every where! I thought I would take a minute and share some calorie counts and offer a bit of education on how to offset this season’s indulgences.
In our society, holidays and celebrations are synonymous with food. Make sure that you educate yourself on the amount of calories you could be mindlessly eating as you walk by the candy bowl at work or dip into your children’s Halloween treasures. Below, is a chart to give you an idea of what it will take to burn off this MINI-SIZED Fun Treats!
As with any health plan, complete deprivation will set you up for failure. A term I frequently remind my clients of is, “everything in moderation.” I do not recommend that anyone completely forego sweet treats, IF they want to indulge. It is not realistic to expect to sustain a lifestyle change without participating in days of celebration. Whether it is Halloween candy, the office birthday cake, or the upcoming holiday season, don’t allow an exception to your daily eating plan to derail your fitness journey.
IF you choose to eat the treats, be ready to do the work! BAM!!!
