Regarding Tricks & treats. The numbers below show approximately what it takes for 160 pound person to “work off” the Halloween Candy (which is no trick) when it comes to consuming the “treats”. So this is one reason why I usually purchase candies I won’t eat. (ok, so I may break down and have a mini).
Let me have the numbers….
Below are examples of candies – that equal the “run
off” in miles or steps~
BITE SIZED Chocolate Candy:
Snickers; 3 Musketeers; Butterfingers, etc.
- =1/2 mile / 1100 steps
FUN SIZED Chocolate Candy:
3; Musketeers; Butterfingers; 1 Regular Peanut Butter Cup, etc.
- = 1 mile / 2200 steps
FULL SIZE Chocolate Candy:
2 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, etc. (full size bars)
- = 2.75 miles / 5800 steps
If all else fails, purchase candy you will not eat so you won’t be tempted to indulge in lots of chocolate.
