{February 29, 2012}   Campus Food Will Be My Downfall

The worst news for any college student on a diet is that break is over and school is in session once again. This means late night snacking, trips with friends to fast food restaurants and, possibly worst of all, campus food. All the fried food served in dining halls spells disaster for the health-concious eater. But what many students don’t realize is that campus food isn’t necessarily the cause of our diet troubles. There are many options at the dining hall, yet many of us find only enough room on our plates for fries and pasta. And maybe some ice cream for dessert. There’s most likely a salad bar or fresh fruit somewhere in the hall if you look hard enough. Instead of blaming the dining hall as you reach for a donut, think about the choices you’re making for your body. You have the power to choose what will fit your diet and fill your stomach. Armed with the right resources and knowledge of what’s good for you and what’s not, you only need self-control to make your diet a success. So the next time you make a trip to the dining hall and wander aimlessly wondering what to get, remember there are healthy options for you. You just have to know where to look and empower yourself to make good choices.

I used to have this problem in college; eating and drinking everything in sight, that they had to offer in the cafeteria 😦 This was the major reason why I decided to go to a local school because my mind and body were suffering too much…not worth it! Good luck and I look forward to sharing more with you:))

Thanks for the comment! I think a lot of us have/had that problem in college. I saw your blog and it looks very interesting. As you can see, I’m very involved in eating healthy and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Thanks for connecting with me 🙂
