How To Avoid the Halloween Candy

Being the first day of October, fall is in the air and pumpkins are everywhere! Everyone is buzzing about costume shopping and party prepping, and it’s only a matter of days before caramel apples, pumpkin bread, and buckets of Halloween candy start showing up in your life. Here’s some tips to protect yourself against the weight gain.

  1. Treat Yourself

This may seem contradictive, but not if you do it the right way. There are great deal of ways you can enjoy sweet treats without going overboard into the candy bin. Watch your caloric intake and if you need a sweet treat, let yourself have one –( that’s ONE, not twenty-one).  The day or week can be balanced out if you go over your calories in one day or one meal, you can make up for it. One of those ways to get in the nutrients without too many calories is to use a meal replacement shake like Rx Meal. With a balanced ratio of carbohydrates, protein, and fats, this nutrient boost tastes like an ice cream shake yet provides a feeling of satiety.

The best offense is a good defense, so trim down.

When there is the chance that you may fall off the fitness wagon into a candy pile, it’s always good to have a backup plan. Incorporate a fat burner into your daily routine to help burn fat. A fat burner like Burning Point, not only burns fat, but controls your appetite too! Burning Point has the proprietary T.L.C. Stack™ which stands for Thermogenic, Lipotropic and Carb Control. That means not only do you increase your rate of caloric burn, Burning Point will help your body break down and emulsify the existing fat. Plus the Carb Control component not only acts as an appetite suppressant, but it can also inhibit extra carbohydrates from being converted to fat. Burning Point is available in either the XT formula with caffeine for added energy, or SF formula which is stimulant free. You can even stack these two products together to create the 24/7 fat burning stack. You take Burning Point XT during the day (through early to mid-afternoon) then switch to Burning Point SF in the afternoon and evening hours to keep the metabolism burning fat all through the night while you sleep!

Above all, keep your focus. Enlist your friends, family, neighbors, or whomever you can count on, to help you stick to your goals. You can log your foods in one of the many apps that are available or write it down in a notebook the old-fashioned way. Studies show that if you have to write down what you eat, you will think twice before putting it in your body. For ideas on meal planning, click here.
