I go back and forth on giving out junky candy to kids on Halloween.

It's a holiday, so indulging in a sugary treat is perfectly fine. But kids are going home with bags full of sugary treats and overindulging in sugar for days and days.

Sugar can cause a rapid rise of adrenaline levels in children, which is why you'll notice kids become hyperactive after having sugar. Sugar can also worsen the symptoms attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children.

Overconsumption of sugar can also cause tooth decay and contribute to obesity.

So why not hand out something a bit healthier this Halloween? You may be the only one in your neighborhood handing out healthier alternatives to Halloween candy, but you may introduce those trick-or-treaters to a new healthy snack!

How many times have you began a new year with lofty goals to lose weight only to give up on your diet and ditch the gym after a couple of months (or weeks)?

It can be confusing, frustrating and a bit overwhelming to know what to do for long-term success. There’s so much conflicting information everywhere we turn, and sometimes we just feel defeated and give up.   

One thing we do know for sure is that restrictive diets don’t work long-term, and rapid weight loss often leads to rapid weight gain. I've said it before…diets don't work.

I was recently thinking back to when I first started my weight loss journey. I constantly felt overwhelmed by all the different diets, health magazines and wellness blogs. 

I would start a plan, eat a food or meal that wasn't on the plan, and feel like I totally failed. My guilt about failing yet another diet plan would send me down a spiral of binge eating, feeling guilty then looking for another plan to jump into.

I always thought it was me. I didn't have enough willpower or I didn't want it enough. 

When I finally realized that it wasn't me, it was dieting, I felt free! But letting go of that dieting mindset can be a challenge.
