Avoiding weight gain in college

Getting the proper amount of sleep every night is important!

The body tries to compensate for lost sleep by demanding food.

About 7 to 9 hours of sleep is enough to help curb the munches. Eliminating excess calories can help keep off unwanted weight gain.

Having trouble going to Bed early?

Try getting work done early in the day instead of late at night. This will help avoid late night homework and study sessions.

Avoid junk food

Foods containing high amounts of fat, sodium, sugar, and calories are generally foods to stay away from. This means actively avoiding most fast food restaurants and vending machines.

Indulging oneself in unhealthy foods can have negative consequences on the body.

There are plenty of healthy alternatives to unhealthy foods.

Healthy foods like lean meats, fruits, vegetables, and grains contain a reasonable amount of protein, carbohydrates, and essential vitamins and minerals.

Although food options are limited here at Liberty, there is still a large range of healthy choices that a student possibly could choose from.
