I think we're all addicted to candy/sweets in one way or another. I know Halloween can be a difficult time because it's everywhere ! However, it's not as bad as you'd think. Spark People isn't about deprivation. It's all about moderation and portion control. A couple of fun sized candies CAN be a part of a healthy lifestyle. You just have to learn to be mindful of that portion.
If you think you might over do it, then go out and buy some fruit to keep on hand for snacks. when you feel an urge for more than a reasonable portion of candy, have a piece of fruit. the natural sweetness of the fruit will help decrease any sugar cravings you're having.
trust me, have an apple or two or three. I have yet to meet the person who could binge eat apples. Try to eat more fruit. it really can help.
