Three Ways to Avoid Eating Too Much Easter Candy

#1.)  Only Eat Candy You LOVE.  Reward yourself with your favorites, and skip the filler.  

#2.)  Avoid Candy with "Partially Hydrogenated Oil".  It's code for trans fat, which raises your "bad" cholesterol and lowers your "good" cholesterol. check the label before you put it in your cart.

#3.)  Make Sure You Don't Have Leftovers.  buy just ENOUGH candy, and if you DO have some left over, either throw it away or take it to work and share it.
