Your body will forgive you if you eat that Halloween Kit Kat. I mean who doesn’t love a Kit Kat?
The reality is deprivation doesn’t do anybody any good. But overindulgence doesn’t either. So I have 3 rules I want you to keep in mind between now and January 1st.
Did you know the average weight gain between Halloween and New Years is 2-5 lbs.? Sure it doesn’t sound like much, but 1-2 pounds makes your jeans feel tight. And 5 pounds usually puts you into a new size. Yikes!
Don’t deprive but don’t give into every craving! Over the next few days have some candy! Eat the candy your kids “don’t want”. But get right back on track. Between now and New Years you will have several days you indulge (notice I did not say overindulge).
You stack Christmas on top of Thanksgiving on top of Halloween and top it off with Egg Nog and cookies the week before New Years…let’s just say that equals about 10-15 days of indulging. Be mindful and get back on track. No marathoning indulgences between now and New Years Day.
And guess what – there is a plan to get you back on track. It stops the cravings in their tracks, it’s all natural, takes 3 minutes to read, doesn’t include hokey cleanse juices. Just a simple reset that gets you back to “normal”. Check out the 3 Day Hunger Reset.
Keep a plan. An exercise plan. You eat better when you exercise! Maybe switch to evening workouts if you tend to overindulge in front of the DVR at 10:00 pm.

Don’t go outside your perimeter. You may have heard it before – all those little bites, licks and tastes off your kids plates + mindless Goldfish grabs = too many calories. The same is true for Halloween candy.
Instead of eating 5 Peanut Butter Kisses, while firing off emails and cooking dinner, set a POA. A Plan of Action. Plan your treats. Take time, savor them. Develop your POA. Get back on track with the Hunger Reset here. And keep rocking your workouts!
Hope you have a spooktacular Halloween!
