Candy you hate? Seriously?
Yup—the Loyola Center for Fitness is so worried you will bolt down the Halloween candy, it advises only buy the kind you hate.
Also, delay buying it—less time for it to call to you from the garage or wherever.
Don’t get chocolate—people eat that. That means YOU!
Eat a healthy meal so you won’t be hungry, Loyola says.
Chew sugarless gum.
Oh—and I love this one—keep the wrappers so you can see how much you ate.
Also, confiscate the candy. Dole it out for desserts.
Mom used to do that last—we found it months later, all nasty and chalky.
Loyola also says give out Halloween pencils instead of comestibles. How about stickers instead of Snickers? Raisins? Packages of microwave popcorn?
Oh, stop, stop, stop.
Fun is officially dead. RIP, fun.
