Q: There's always candy all over my office, especially with Halloween approaching. What can I do to avoid getting fat from it?

Try to keep a full, satisfied tummy throughout the day so you aren't hungry at your desk near the candy–it will be the first thing you reach for. If this doesn't work, get up from your desk and go for a walk around your office every time you experience a craving.

Ultimately, the best thing is to avoid having candy at or near your desk, if possible. Or, if you keep some at your desk, keep something that you don't like.

But if you do need a candy fix, I'd recommend opting for organic dark chocolate, the only type of chocolate that has any type of benefit that outweighs the calories and sugar.

You could keep a bar in the office and nibble on it when you want something sweet.
