Do You Have Halloween Candy Hangover?

Get a Skinny Shot!

Welcome to the week after Halloween, when a certain sweet-toothed segment of the population may arise with a hangover-a candy hangover!!

Many adults who took their children trick-or-treating, will most likely be stealing a small piece of candy here and there for the next two weeks.  They don’t pay attention to the calories from the fun sized candy they consume, but these calories begin to add up especially if you’re trying to drop a few pounds.

To get an estimate of your total calorie consumption, consider the calorie count from some of the most popular Halloween candy.

  • Snicker Fun Size: 80 calories per bar
  • Sweet Tarts:60 calories in 6 pieces of candy
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups: 105 calories per bar
  • Almond Joy: 80 calories per bar
  • Milky Way: 80 calories per bar
  • Tootsie Roll: 140 calories in 6 minis
  • M&Ms: 180 calories per 3-pack serving
  • Hershey’s Chocolate Bar: 77 calories per fun size bar
  • Candy Corn: 140 calories per 19-piece serving
  • Kit Kat Fun Size: 70 calories per serving
  • Whoppers Fun Size: 32 calories

Did you consume a lot of total calories from candy this Halloween season?  If so, you may need a skinny shot.

What is a Skinny Shot? 

Skinny shots, or lipotropic injections, are a mixture of B vitamins, amino acids, and lipotropic agents.  They are used to help patients with generalized weight loss by boosting energy and metabolism and increasing removal of fat from the body.  The skinny shot is a special formula of liver supporting nutrients that can help with energy, fat metabolism, and hormone balance, which are all key liver functions.

Our Skinny Shot contains:

Methionine: Amino acid important for many bodily functions.  It prevents excess fat buildup in the liver and the body and is helpful in relieving or preventing fatigue.

Inositol: Aids in the metabolism of fats and helps reduce blood cholesterol.  Inositol participates in action of serotonin, a neurotransmitter known to control mood and appetite.

Choline: Supports the health of the liver in its processing and excretion of chemical waste products within the body.  It is required for the transport and metabolism of fats and cholesterol within the body, which supports the endocrine, cardiovascular and liver systems.

B Vitamins: Important in the breakdown of carbohydrates from foods into products needed by the body.

Vitamin C: Powerful antioxidant, immunity booster, and aids in antiaging.

Carnitine: Involved in energy metabolism and mitochondrial protection.

Chromium: Helps to move blood sugar (glucose) from the bloodstream into the cells to be used as energy and to turn fats, carbohydrates, and proteins into energy.

Lidocaine: An anesthetic to help numb and relieve pain.
