Halloween candy seems to be everywhere...here are a few tips to cut the amount of Halloween candy you eat.
According to a study, you should keep empty wrappers in plain sight while eating your Halloween candy.
Brian Wansink, author of Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think, said that study participants ate almost half as many Halloween candies when they kept the wrappers in sight.
"Having a visual reminder of how much they ate, keeps you honest and eating less," Wansink said. "Your stomach can't count but your eyes can when they seen the empty wrappers."
Wansink also advised that instead of putting out a bowl of Halloween candy on an office desk at work or at home next to the sofa, it should be placed across the room because people will eat less if they have to get up and walk.
