The onset of autumn is enough to make you want to reach for the sofa and your favourite comfort foods. Add to that the simple fact that Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas are all in quick succession and this time of year suddenly becomes a dieter’s nightmare!
If you are trying to either lose a few pounds or maintain a happy and healthy weight, autumn and winter’s celebrations, and the plummeting temperatures, really can make you feel as though everything is conspiring against you. However, never fear as the team at Vital Health and Wellbeing is here with some top tips on how to stay fit and healthy as Halloween approaches. Let’s take a closer look:
Halloween is that time of year when, try as you may, there is no getting away from the fact that you will be surrounded by sweets and treats.

However, remember that there has been a raft of coverage on the health-destroying properties of sugar in the press recently.

So if ever there has been a time to use fact to support your refusal to join in the sweet eating, then this is it!
