Keep the sugary treats
Once you have purchased some bags of candies for Halloween, it would be best if you keep them away. If they are out of your sight, there will be less temptation. You wouldn’t even think about them until the day of the celebration itself comes.

After the halloween, you can also shake those calories off by exercising. But make sure that you do this on a regular basis.
