6 Ways to Get Your Candy Fix Without Going Overboard

Posted on November 28th, 2014

Candy is a weakness for many, and what holiday (or birthday, or Thursday) is complete without a bite of something sweet? While candy has garnered a bad reputation, there's no reason to avoid it completely if you want to stay healthy. Here are 6 easy ways to get your candy fix the smart way. 

1. Go Dark

Dark chocolate is rich in antioxidants, and in moderation, can help lower your blood pressure and help you lose weight. Two mini-sized dark chocolate candy bars are less than 100 calories!

2. Opt for Low Fat Options 

There are many low fat candies on the market, although chocolate is not one of them. However, fruity candies like Skittles or Twizzlers are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth without adding to your total fat consumption for the day. 

3. Choose Candy With Peanuts 

Peanuts are an ultra-healthy food, and pack a powerful protein and antioxidant punch. A delicious candy bar like a Payday that is covered in peanuts can help you get that salty-sweet fix, while curbing your hunger in between meals. 

4. Don't Pass Up the Hard Candy 

While most hard candy is higher in sugar, it lasts longer (as long as you don't chew it up). A lollipop, peppermint, or other piece of hard candy can give you a long-lasting treat that satisfies with less overall calories than other candies. When you want something sweet, suck on a hard candy for several minutes instead of popping dozens of gummy bears in your mouth in the same time frame. 

5. Choose Dried Fruit Instead 

Dried fruit is very sweet (and yes, it does have quite a bit of sugar) but it is significantly healthier than candy and doesn't require you to sacrifice satisfying your sweet tooth. Dried fruit packs many of the health benefits of their fresh counterparts, including powerful antioxidants and nutrients, and has significantly less fat than chocolate and other types of candy.

6. Use Portion Control

If you're really craving something high in sugar and fat, opt for something that allows you to easily control your portions. For example, you are more likely to be able to divide a bag of M&M's up into reasonable portions than you are a large candy bar. Choose smaller candies that you can just eat a few of, and save the rest for another time.

Candy doesn't have to be eliminated from your diet entirely if you're smart about what you choose, and eat candy only in moderation.
