Hey Hungry Readers!
I’m sharing this here because this was something I really struggled with while I was away at school. Before I went to college I didn’t have clue about nutrition and I went in thinking that I could eat whatever I wanted while still maintaining my fitness— I was a competitive swimmer in high school but did not swim in college.
I was no longer working out and eating pretty poorly (even though I thought I was eating well), and even after I started making a habit of going to the gym, it took it me a really long time to realize that the problem was my diet.
I made a lot of the mistakes that Dr. Young points out in this article (which I wrote, just FYI) and I hope that these tips might help any soon-to-be freshman avoid them!
