Is your sweet tooth still raging from all that Halloween candy? Well guys as you all know this is a challenging time of year especially with those parties, events and sometimes the main culprit: sweets. It’s the season of sweets and treats ranging from candy, cookies, pies, and even sugar topped or coated veggies. So how can one aid in only gaining a few pounds or even prevent weight gain?

Drink water or tea before your meals
Eat on smaller plates
Wait 15 minutes before going back to get seconds
Make half your plate veggies
Indulge in conversation and activity
Choose a candy that has a non-solid center (instead of normal M&M’s try the pretzel M&M’s (calories: 240 v 150;fat: 10 v 4.5;carbs: 34 v 24;sugar: 30 v 17 – respectively….see what I mean? Pay attention to labels!)
Pay attention to your drink choices. If you’re choosing sugar-sweetened beverages, alcohol, etc, alternate with water.
