If Halloween isn’t a time to indulge, we don’t know what is! But that doesn’t mean you should get spooked by the thought of a candy-filled, calorie-laden celebration, notes Keri Glassman, nutritionist and author of “The New You (and Improved!) Diet.”
“Whatever snack you do choose to indulge in, make sure you eat it slowly, savoring every delicious bite,” advises Glassman. “That will help you to feel satisfied without going overboard.” Speaking of overboard, keep in mind that candy marked “king size” is a red flag for a scary portion of calories, sugar and fat.
