Post Halloween Candy Advice – What Should You Do Now?
Just about every house at the Jersey Shore is full of candy today. It's the day after Halloween. If you've indulged, what is it going to take to reverse it?
It doesn't matter if the house is loaded with candy because the kids got so much when they were trick or treating, or if you bought too much and have leftovers, or a combination of both. The question is what do we do now?
Well, here are a couple of things you can do if you're "just one piece" turned into a handful or two.
Exercise. You may not like the stats on this one. According to Pop Sugar, you have a lot of work ahead of you. Here are a couple of examples...
If you ate 1 Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, you'll need to do jumping jacks for 12 minutes and 12 seconds to burn off the calories.
If you figured a fun sized Snickers wasn't a big deal, start doing your jumping jacks...and keep doing them for 14 minutes and 24 seconds.
There are also other things you can do to counter your sugar overload, according to Cooking Light.
Eat probiotic foods. Yep, get rid of the bad bacteria with Greek yogurt, refrigerated sauerkraut or cultured cottage cheese.
Protein and Fiber. If you don't want to get hungry again after the sugar crash consume foods with fiber and protein.
Yoga. Studies show women drink more sugary stuff when they're stressed, so some yoga should do the trick.
So, don't feel so bad about a little indulging this Halloween. If you have there are some things that will physically help you, and make you feel a little less guilty about the over-eating.
The good calorie news...Halloween is 364 days away. The bad calorie news...Thanksgiving is only 22 days away.
