If you’re anything like me, you love candy. I can’t stop eating candy, so here are some tips for you to enjoy sweets without overdoing it.
Sugar has been linked to heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer, and other chronic diseases.
Sugar has been linked to heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer, and other chronic diseases. It can also cause weight gain and dental problems. Additionally, sugar can lead to hyperactivity in children and depression in adults who eat too much of it.
Candy can make you feel great in the moment when you eat it but then can leave you feeling guilty or ashamed afterwards.

You can find a snack that is both sweet and healthy such as yogurt and fruit or applesauce with cinnamon.
You can also make your own snacks. If you have a sweet tooth, try making healthy versions of your favorite treats. Applesauce with cinnamon is a great example because it’s sweet and flavorful but not loaded with calories or fat. You can also buy pre-made snacks from the grocery store that are healthy yet delicious, such as yogurt and fruit or applesauce (with cinnamon).
Drink water when you are craving a sweet treat.
Drink water when you are craving a sweet treat.
Our bodies crave fluids, and often we confuse thirst for hunger. When you feel yourself wanting to eat something sugary, drink some water first! You may find that your appetite subsides once you’ve quenched your thirst.
If you’re still hungry after drinking some water, try eating some fresh fruit instead of candy or other processed foods that will make it harder for you to lose weight over time.
Take some time to read the nutrition label and ingredients of the candy that you are eating.
The nutrition label is a great way to gauge the quality of what you’re eating. It’s pretty simple: the ingredients are listed in order of weight, so the first ingredient is usually most prevalent.
While reading through that list, pay attention to whether or not sugar and corn syrup are listed as one of the first two ingredients (they are). If they are, then there’s a good chance that your candy has more than just a few grams of sugar per serving—and that could lead to an increase in blood glucose levels over time (and thus cravings).
Buy yourself a piece of real dark chocolate instead of a candy bar.
If you’re craving chocolate, try buying a piece of real dark chocolate instead of a candy bar. Dark chocolate has more health benefits than milk chocolate and contains more antioxidants, fiber, magnesium and potassium. It also has less sugar per serving than the sugary stuff you’d get at the checkout aisle in grocery stores.
Plan ahead so that you have healthy snacks on hand when you are tempted to eat something unhealthy.
The first step in overcoming a candy problem is to plan ahead.
If you know that you are going to be tempted by unhealthy food, then there are a few things that you can do to help avoid the temptation. The first thing that is important is planning ahead. If you know that there will be candy at work or at home, then make sure that there are healthy options available as well. Having fruit on hand will go a long way toward helping keep your sugar intake low while also providing some much-needed vitamins and minerals!
Another thing that could help with cravings is having healthy snacks readily available when they occur. This way, if someone comes into the break room with a bag of Skittles or M&Ms, it won’t matter because there will already be something healthier waiting for them instead! This goes for when friends come over too: don’t let them get into any trouble by offering them unhealthy foods just because they’re around! Instead make sure everyone has access to some veggies or an apple before heading out on their night out so everyone can stay healthy throughout their evening together
Try to limit your exposure to advertisements for unhealthy foods as much as possible.
You should try to limit your exposure to advertisements for unhealthy foods as much as possible. This includes avoiding television shows and movies that are full of unhealthy food, avoiding reading magazines that are full of unhealthy food, and avoiding going to restaurants that are full of unhealthy food. The more often you see these things, the more likely you will be to want them—which is why we recommend this step first.
Just one piece of candy during the day will help satisfy your cravings for sweets without going overboard.
One piece of candy is all you need to satisfy your cravings for sweets. If you eat too much, it will only make you feel sick and then you’ll have to deal with a sugar hangover.
Eat just one piece of candy at a time and give yourself some time before eating another one so that the sugar in your blood doesn’t spike and crash back down again.
However, be aware that this is not a license to binge on sweets all day long—and if possible avoid eating any more than 20 grams of sugar per day (this is equivalent to two pieces of chocolate). The trick is knowing how much candy counts as 20 grams: each gram contains four calories, so divide the number by 4!
Don’t eat so much candy! It will hurt your body and your self-esteem.
You might be thinking “Well, candy isn’t so bad for me! It’s sweet and delicious. It makes my mouth happy.” But here’s the thing: candy is not healthy for you in any way, shape or form. It doesn’t help your body to have sweets all the time. In fact, it can cause some serious damage over time. For example:
- Eating too much sugar will make you gain weight (and if this has happened to you before try not to feel bad about yourself).
- Eating too much sugar will increase your risk of diabetes later on in life (this includes type 1 as well).
- Eating too much chocolate affects your teeth (a topic that deserves its own post!).
I know this is pretty harsh but honestly—candy isn’t doing anything good for us here! I do think we should love ourselves but don’t let candy be part of that equation!
These are just a few tips to help you cut down on your candy consumption. If you have a serious sweet tooth and can’t seem to control yourself, talk to your doctor about other ways that you can curb your sugar cravings.
