Well, Well, Well it is time for the ghosts and goblins to come out and spook all the little trick or treaters out there. Unfortunately because of inclement weather many of you have postponed Halloween til the weekend.
But I know most will be celebrating it tonight.
I can remember when I was a little kid we stayed out trick or treating til like 11 pm and we brought home grocery paper bags full of candy. I kid you not. It was amazing how much candy we had and how much we consumed in the proceeding few days. It just seemed to never stop. (And for adults it can be a recipe for disaster when trying to find ways to lose weight )
Today, there is still a lot of candy. I know with my kids here in Texas this month has been Halloween party after Halloween party at the library, school, churches, school mates’ homes, heck even at McDonalds. It just seems so much more commercialized now a days.
So even though my kids do not get as much candy on the actual night of Halloween they make up for it in all the other parties leading up to it. Just a different way to get as much as candy as they can like we did in my day with our grocery paper bags and staying out til 11pm on the big night:)
With all this being said I know many adults including yours truly kind of make it a exception in eating the sugar laden candy on this holiday.
Folks, there is nothing wrong with having a few mini snicker bars or a small box of skittles but just keep everything in modest portions.
Remember, your metabolisms are different than young children. Children can burn this stuff off in a whim. But for us adults the metabolism is definitely slower and thus this could could cause all that sugar to settle and be processed into FAT !
(Suffice to to say this is not one of the best ways to lose weight)
And it is just plain unhealthy all the way around.
So guys have fun tonight or this weekend and remember to eat some good treats but be smart about it and do not over stuff your faces with Sugar.
