Halloween can be scary when you’re trying to lose weight and transform your body. Tempting treats are everywhere and it can be difficult to avoid them when you attend parties and other festivities. Plus, it’s the beginning of the holiday season, and if you get off track on Halloween, it can lead to a downward spiral—and the end of your diet or healthy lifestyle. Read on for some nutrition and mindset coach-approved tips for enjoying yourself while staying on track this Halloween.

1. Get a Morning Halloween Workout In

Whether you plan on hitting parties and drinking or escorting your little ones for some trick-or-treating, make sure to schedule time for exercise on Halloween day. Aim for the morning so that you get it out of the way and don’t find excuses for skipping the workout. Since Halloween is on a Tuesday this year, you may celebrate this weekend and on the actual day. If so, get moving every day that you celebrate. It will make you feel extra confident in your Halloween costume!

2. Strive for Balance

Load up on protein and fiber all day long, so that you’re not feeling hungry by the time you get started with your Halloween activities. At your event, fill three quarters of your plate with healthy choices such as veggies and leave only a quarter free for treats.

3. Hydrate

Proper hydration is key to all diets and weight management programs, as well as a healthy lifestyle. When you attend special events or are going to be around lots of tempting treats, drink lots of water to fill you up. This is even more essential if you plan to have alcoholic drinks.

4. Buy Your Least Favorite Candy

If you plan to stay home and hand out candy, buy types that you don’t like. You’ll be less tempted to get off track. For example, if chocolate is your vice, choose to hand out fruity or gummy type candies that will be easier to resist.

5. Buy Treats on Halloween Day

The only time I recommend procrastination is when it comes to buying Halloween candy. Don’t hit the store early and have bags of candy sitting on your shelves for days on end. Go at the last possible minute—as in the day of. In addition to minimizing temptation, you’ll get your treats on sale as well.

6. Stock Up on Healthy Treats

Now is an excellent time to have healthy snacks and treats within reach. This will help you stave off candy cravings when your office has candy bowls and treats everywhere. Stock a fruit bowl with colorful, delicious produce or nuts and seeds so that you can curb hunger pangs and save the treats for when you really want one.

Tips like these are what help us live a truly healthy lifestyle no matter what time of year it is or what is happening in our environment. For more ways to optimize your lifestyle and transform your body, consider working with a nutrition and mindset coach like me.
