Halloween Does Not Have to Be Scary!! Are You Thinking About or Have You Had Weight Loss Surgery? Halloween Survival Tips!!

Halloween Survival Tips

Halloween is coming and what do we do??  Candy is not part of the meal plan….. Some Tips to help you through this candy filled holiday when you are trying to lose weight!

1. Do not skip meals.

2.Eat a healthy snack before arriving at a party so you will be less hungry and tempted to make poor food choices.

3. Stay hydrated…64oz non-carbonated, sugar free decaffeinated fluids per day. Remember your fluids will fill you up leaving no room for sugary sweets!

4. Wait to purchase candy for the kiddies until a day or two before Halloween so you are not tempted to eat them!

5. Buy candy you don’t like to eat!

6. Think about handing out a non candy treat… For example stickers, temporary tattoos, glow sticks, hair bows and barrettes, fun Halloween themed pens & pencils etc.
