The Truth About Halloween Candy and Weight Loss

​Snickers, twix, m&m's, carmello, chocolate!

​I was a witch for 4 years in a row! I used to LOVE Halloween when I was a kid! Not so much for the getting dressed up part, but for the candy! Plus I always knew what houses gave out the good stuff and not the lame apples!

​And apparently I am not the only one! Halloween has been around since 1951... That is a lot of calories, fat and sugar!

But What does that really mean...

​Ok here comes the real truth... (all listed in fun size)

  • ​3 Musketeer 70 Calories, 2 Grams of Fat, 13 Carbohydrates = 14 Minute Walk
  • ​Butterfinger 100 Calories, 4 Grams of Fat, 15 Carbohydrates = ​ ​9 Minute on the elliptical
  • ​ Kit Kat 90 calories, 5 Grams of Fat 11 Carbohydrates = 9 minute swim
  • ​Snickers 80 Calories, 5 Grams of Fat, 15 Carbohydrates = 10 Minute Bike Ride
  •  Reese PB Cup 90 Calories  5 Grams fat  10 Carbohydrates= 16 minute walk

Candy is good, BUT you ate it, now negate it!  Think about it, is a candy bar worth an extra 15-20 minute walk?  Maybe so… and it is ok to splurge once in a while.  But remember, you have to be conscious of what you are putting in your mouth ​AND more importantly, how much you are putting in your mouth.  

​Be ​aware of how much candy you are eating this Halloween. If you're not aware of it you could easily consume 700-800 hundred extra calories (oh btw... that is only 5-7 pieces of candy! ​

​Here's how to do it...

  • 1
    ​Pick out the candy you want CAREFULLY.
  • 2
    ​Decide how many pieces you are going to eat.
  • 3
    ​Allow yourself 1 piece (for now).
  • 4
    Set the other pieces out of sight and safe (damn kids).
  • 5
    ​Be aware of the taste and enjoy it.
  • 6
    Tell yourself that was just enough!

My name is Danielle. I am a mom, author, weight loss coach and creator of the “Diamond Body Image Process™.
I work with strong and determined women with busy lives, who’ve let themselves go for years due to work or taking care of their family. And because of this they are struggling with…
– Standing on your bathroom scale and seeing you are at your highest weight ever so you’ve decided to lose the weight but you don’t know HOW.
– The shame of being overweight is holding you back from being in family photos or videos
– Feel frustrated, fat and uncomfortable because your pants are too tight.
– Feeling embarrassed to be naked in front of your husband and causing you to not be intimate with him yet you want to build a strong bond for a lasting relationship.
And secretly they feel ashamed and embarrassed about their weight. And if they were really honest they would say even though they look happy on the outside, on the inside they feel like a big fat failure and lack the confidence they once had.

For these women, I provide a safe, caring environment for them to be completely honest and open their feelings and fears. I empower them to stop making excuses and blaming their circumstances for being overweight, and instead take personal responsibility for their weight loss, so they can achieve their ideal weight, feel more confident and energized and be their best version of themselves.
