Date:10/16/2008

OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Walk into any grocery store and there's likely to be a Halloween aisle brimming over with candy. Those who struggle with mindless eating have already begun to wonder how they'll stay clear of trick-or-treat sweets.

thoughts come in your mind as you do this. Let the thoughts come and

go.

5. Place the chocolate in your mouth. Notice the flavor, richness, and
