With 2016 right around the corner, now is the time when many people begin thinking about their resolutions for the new year. For many, health and fitness will be a top concern and a large number of Americans will start the year on a diet. While many believe that going on a diet means giving up all of your favorite sweet treats, this doesn’t have to be the case! Read on to learn more about how you can indulge in the candy you love while maintaining your New Year’s resolutions.
Moderation is key
As with all good things in life, candy is best enjoyed in moderation. While your diet won’t get very far if you allow yourself to eat an entire bag of chocolate in one sitting, allowing yourself a candy or two per day can actually make it easier to stick to your plan. With very strict diets, many people aren’t able to keep them up and once they cheat, they feel like a failure and decide to give up on their resolution completely. Research has shown that if you want your diet to last, you should include sweets in moderation.
Hard candies are a great choice
Hard candies are a great choice when you’re craving a sweet taste but don’t want to indulge in too many calories. These bite-sized treats are individually wrapped, making it easy to only eat one or two at a time. They are also much easier on the waistline than many other candies as they are relatively low in calories. Despite their petite calorie count, they’re still big in flavor and this can help cut down on cravings for heavier sweets.
Feel full with peppermints
Peppermint hard candies are a great choice for a sweet indulgence that won’t break your diet. Mint is known for both easing digestion and making you feel full, which means a couple of peppermint candies are the perfect diet-friendly treat for dessert. However, it can exacerbate other problems such as heartburn or acid reflux so it is best avoided if you have these issues.
