Although the zombies are done with their October stroll through our neighbourhoods, you may see a few sluggish colleagues in the office today.

They could be suffering from a Halloween Hangover. The candy coma comes after a night of binge eating all those delicious sugary treats.

The Trillium Health Partners Foundation tweeting out the science behind the burnout saying the body responds to sugar intake by releasing insulin to normalize blood sugars, and high insulin can turn you into a bit of a bear.

The side effects of high insulin include irritability, mood swings, fatigue, and yes...more hunger.

Hang in there - tomorrow is Friday.
