Many people who follow a low carb diet find the holidays extremely difficult or they worry that they will be difficult. But this Halloween night can be just like any other night. You may surprise yourself and make it through the entire night without even a small taste of candy. I haven’t had Halloween Candy in 4 years. And I don’t plan on having any this year.
My goal with this post is to give you some of my best strategies to avoid the sweets.
How to avoid Halloween Candy? Don’t Be Tricked into Eating the Treats.
Simply Don’t Buy Halloween Candy:
This is a simple strategy because if you don’t have the candy in the house, you won’t be tempted in the first place. I suggest don’t stop by the store so you are not tempted to buy it. On Halloween night, turn off the porch light and don’t pass out candy.
Pass out Toys
However, if you have kids or you know that you will have lots of Trick or Treaters, then I suggest buying a candy that you hate and think is disgusting.
A few things that come to mind are bouncy balls, stickers, pencils, rings. Amazon has a lot of ideas here. I like This Kissdream bag of party favours. It contains 152 items. I think kids would be delighted to receive a toy rather than candy.
don’t buy Halloween Candy- don’t have it available- don’t pass it out. Simply turn off the lights!
But at least if you dicide to have a piece of these sugar-free suckers, you wont be eating any sugar and sabotage your way of eating.
But what happens if you avoid buying the candy and passing it out but your kids come home with bags full of the sweet stuff? How do you risist sneaking into their bag of goodies?
Many people find that having a sugar-free candy alternative available helps with cravings. My two suggestions are Lily’s Chocolate as these adult chocolates taste amazing but are sugar free.
The other suggestion would be ice chips candy. Ice chips candy are a hard mints that comes in a variety of flavors. They are sugar free and a favorite for type 2 diabetics as they don’t raise insulin.
Be strong! You got this. Halloween will be here and gone before you know it and you will be very proud of yourself for handling it without caving.
