In a study being presented this Saturday at the American Heart Association conference in Orlando shows that people ate almost half as many mini-size Halloween candies when they kept the wrappers in plain sight, according to lead author, Brian Wansink, author of "Mindless Eating." Having a visual reminder of how much they ate, keeps you honest and eating less, said Wansink, Your stomach cant count, but your eyes can when they seen the empty wrappers.

Mindless Eating offers additional strategies you can employ this Halloween to reengineer your environment and help you and your kids mindlessly eat better:

1) Out of sight, out of mind.

If you keep a candy dish with a whole potpourri of Halloween candy on your desk at work, rather than just dumping it, move it away 5, 10 feet. In studies weve done with secretaries with dishes of chocolate candy on their desk, we found that by simply moving the candy dishes farther away, the secretaries ate considerably less. It takes more work to get up and walk to the opposite side of the room to grab a Hersheys kiss than when its sitting right next to your stack of papers that needs to be faxed. Similarly, when your kids come home after hours of trick-or-treating, dont just empty out their pillow cases onto a serving bowl in the middle of the dining room table and let everyone have at it whenever they want. Youll quickly find your kids spending as much time at the dining room table as they do in front of the TV.

2) Dont give up your job as nutritional gatekeeper.

Control the amount your family eats let your kids enjoy th
