Skinny Up Your Candy Habit

Got a sweet tooth? There’s no reason to give up candy completely, even if you’re trying to lose weight. Just make some adjustments. Instead of two handfuls of MnM’s, have a Tootsie Pop. You’ll still get to enjoy a chocolate treat, but it will last much longer and save you about 140 calories (almost 14 pounds a year). “Or, instead of indulging your sweet tooth every day, have a piece of dark chocolate on those days when a chocolate craving really strikes -- the less sugar you eat, the less sugar you crave. And dark chocolate contains heart-healthy flavanoids,” says Batayneh.
