How to stick to your weight loss diet on Halloween.

Halloween is a day when, for one reason or another, most people will come in direct contact with a large variety of food that they shouldn’t eat.

And it’s not just any food either. It’s junk food. It’s candy. It’s pounds and pounds of sugar and chocolate. It looks good. It smells good. It tastes good. Hey, I’ve eaten it before. It really does taste good.

And this food will be within your reach… all day. Hell, you will most likely have to pick it up and actually hold it in your hands while giving it away to the kids who ring your doorbell.

All of the above makes the probability that you will eat some of this junk food and candy quite high. The only problem with that is… you know you shouldn’t, and you know in the end, despite how insanely tempting it might be, you really don’t want to.

So, how exactly do you go the entire day without eating any of this wonderful candy?

Well, one group of people will tell you to go ahead and eat some. “Hey, it’s just one day out of the year, it’s no big deal.” And they’ll certainly mention that “As long as you don’t go TOO crazy, it’s good to reward yourself every once in a while, and Halloween is a perfect day to do just that.”

Thing is… I’m just not part of that group of people. I never have been, and I never will be. So if you want to hear that type of advice, find some other blog.

If you want to hear my advice, here you go… Don’t. Eat. Any.

Not a few pieces. Not one piece. Not one piece of a piece. Not one half of a piece of a piece. If you want to make it really interesting, keep written track of the number of times you really wanted to eat some of it, but didn’t. All night, keep updating the list. If you still have left over candy the next day, keep the list going then as well. Then, be sure to put this list in a safe place.

Now here’s where the fun comes in. Next Halloween, do the exact same thing. Once it’s over, get out the previous year’s list and compare the two. If you successfully go this entire Halloween without cheating from your diet, I guarantee that by next year, your list will be smaller.

Now I’ve never personally tried this myself. But, that’s only because I didn’t think of it until now. What I did do however was notice that by trying the “Don’t. Eat. Any.” plan of attack one year, every year after I have become less and less tempted by the candy.

This year when I’m giving out candy after candy, I might as well be giving out pencils or rocks. The temptation is just no longer there. I’ve lost interest in junk food. Some people may label me deprived because of my “Don’t. Eat. Any.” mindset. But honestly, how can it be deprivation if I have absolutely no desire to have any in the first place?

And at this point, this Halloween, that’s exactly what I’ve become… a person who just doesn’t have any interest or desire to eat unhealthy junk food on Halloween. And, by the way, I’m not just like this on Halloween. This is my everyday way of life.

Sure, it may not be for everyone. But honestly, the world would be a better (and healthier) place if it was. So, how can you become like this? How does it all start? Simple.

Don’t. Eat. Any.

Happy Halloween.

    My husband is trying to loose weight at the moment. He is walking 6 miles a day and is eating healthily. He takes Cod Liver Oil Tablets everyday but he still doesn’t feel like its helping him. Should he take Multi Vitamins instead to give him a boost or could he take the two together?
