1. Examine Eating Habits:

Take a look in your cabinets and see exactly what you’re eating. Maybe a kitchen full of chips, frozen meals, and soda is the reason you’re not in the best shape. Try cleaning out your kitchen, and refilling it with healthier options like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc. Just making a few simple changes like eating an apple with peanut butter instead of chips and dip can make a huge difference to your body.

2. Start Exercising:

According to the Mayo Clinic, the type of exercise you chose to do has an effect on the amount of calories you burn, therefore “the more intense the activity, the more calories you burn.” If you are new to working out, try adding simple things to your day like going for a walk around campus, or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

3. Fill Up On H2O:

Drinking water instead of sugary drinks like soda and juice can really make a difference for your body. If you find water to bland, try adding fruits to add some flavor. Adding fruits will make you forget your drinking plain old water and also stop the craving for other sugary drinks.
