Throughout college, we shift our focus between a variety of things; our grades, different organizations, networking, and more. However, we’re rarely (if ever) told to focus on our diet. I know it may seem hard to eat well in college now that food is getting so expensive, but it’s not impossible
Luckily, I have three tips to help you maintain a great diet despite being on a college budget
Eating In The Calorie Deficit
The calorie deficit is where a person consumes fewer calories than they burn through daily activities. It’s not food focus, but calorie focus.
When a person has a calorie deficit, their body begins to burn the stored fat for energy. It is a wonderful way to count your calories.
Calories that we gain from food are the main source of eating excessively. You can use apps that are made to track your daily calories/workout plans or more.
On the other hand, you can simply write down how many calories you eat in a day to ensure it’s in moderation.
Replacing Bad Items with Good Items
Eating healthier could simply be replacing foods with better options. You could take the initiative to switch all your refined items to whole-grain items.
For example, buying whole grain pasta over regular pasta. Even if you like to have snacks, you could switch your snacks to fruit or low-calorie snacks.
