October Health: How to Survive Sweets Season

It’s that time again…wh ere candy and sugar-packed treats are everywhere we turn, in  preparation for Halloween. Do you enjoy the occasional treat, or do you gobble all that finds its way into your path? Here are some ways to help minimize your consumption whether your motivation is to keep your blood sugar and weight in check, or to avoid perpetuating cravings:
 
1. Drink plenty of water! I know that seems odd, but it helps you to feel full and therefore minimize the temptation to eat, especially quick, easy, high calorie, high sugar treats.
 
2. Carry fruit with you and consume that any time you have an urge to eat a sugary treat. This will give you healthy sweets – and really you can only eat so much in a day!

4. Have some watered down juice accessible. Juice can actually be surprisingly high in sugar, though natural as opposed to processed and refined. But sugar none-the-less. Try watering down some juice so that you still get some sweet, but just enough to satisfy the craving rather than spike your blood sugar
