When someone hits up college, they instantly find that they want to run out drink beer and eat all the frozen meals that one can enjoy. If you haven’t heard of the, “Freshman 15”, then now is the time to learn about what it’s going to do to your body and your overall well being. Staying healthy in college isn’t that hard, but you’re going to find that you’re going to need to take action, as well as have the motivation in order to do so. By having the motivation to do so, you will find that losing weight really isn’t that hard to do!
1. Take Advantage of the Gym
Every college has some sort of gym and if you’re going to stay on campus, you’re going to want to take advantage of going here on a daily basis. When you go to the gym, make sure that you work on certain parts of the body on certain days.
2. Eat Fresh Fruits and Veggies
Again, it isn’t that hard but when you go to the cafeteria, you’re going to want to make sure that you are eating the healthy stuff on the buffet. Instead of going after the greasy pizza, you will probably want to go after the fresher items.
3. Walk to Class
Some classes will allow you to ride your car, or you may find that you can take some online. The only problem with this is that you won’t get much action in terms of exercise. Be sure to walk to your class or even bike. If you live on campus, try your best to ride your bike to the town and more.
4. Limit the Alcohol
Yes, I know you’re probably going to want to drink alcohol during your college career and that’s fine. It’s okay to have one or two here and there. The kicker here is to make sure that you don’t overdo it. DON’T drink more than 2-3 per week. Beer generally has a ton of calories that you don’t want to absorb.
Motivation is key here, and as long as you take action and think healthy, it won’t be that hard. Remember that there isn’t that magic pill out there that you can take. If there was a pill, everyone would take it! Be sure to follow these tips to ensure you maintain a healthy weight.
