brought to you by FitSugar. I thought it might be helpful to make the best choices (not eating 3 or 4 deliciously iced cupcakes or a whole bag of heart Candy Corns) tomorrow, on one of the sweetest days of the year.
Of course, I am not saying not to indulge.
I am happy to report that I am an advocate of indulging, but there is a difference between indulging and over-indulging. And…if you do end up over-indulging…I say enjoy it, don’t obsess about it, you can make up for it over the next few days. It’s no biggie.
Life’s too short to worry about eating more Hershey’s kisses or cookies than is probably good for us :).
The best way to prevent weight gain (and an awful sugar high) is to know the nutritional info of your favorite edible pleasures. I made a handy chart to help you out, so read more.
