Money always seems to be tight for university students, and so most live off of mac & cheese or Ramen Noodles. Many students eat poorly because they believe that they simply don't have enough money for healthier foods. The excuses can go on forever but in all honesty, it is possible to eat healthy in university on a limited budget.
One of the best ways to save money and steer clear of bad foods is to avoid eating out. Too often students think it's cheaper to run through the McDonald's drive through than to make their own food. The truth is that the money spent at a drive through in a week could get you so much more if used at a grocery store.
Buying healthy food expensive. One of the best ways to find healthy whole foods is to check your local newspaper for coupons. There are often many great deals that will save you money the next time you go to your local grocery store. The whole food you buy doesn't always necessarily have to be fresh. A lot of the time frozen fruits and vegetables are just as healthy and tasty for a fraction of the cost of fresh produce.
Drinking water can be a great way to avoid overeating. Water is a natural appetite suppressor. Not only will it help you eat less, it will also clear up acne you may be getting from the stress of being a student. It also is a great way to avoid getting sick.
The most important way to avoid weight gain in university is to simply watch what you eat. Don't spend your precious money on junk food and soda. Unhealthy foods will leave you feeling tired and lazy due to the fact that they usually do not contain the nutrition your body needs to stay awake through out the day. Eating junk food can also leave you hungry. Your body tells you it's hungry when it needs healthy food that is high in nutrients to run off of. Junk food is not high in nutrients so your body will not be satisfied.
University can be a difficult time to stay healthy, but it's also the most important. As a student you need to be in tip top shape to keep up with your school work and other activities. Using the tips from this article you can stay healthy and avoid that freshman fifteen.
