On Campus Dining Tips

By Emma Douglas

Living on campus has its perks such as being able to roll out of bed ten minutes before class.  This new found freedom also has challenges when it comes to eating and staying active.

These tips may help you avoid the dreaded freshman fifteen:

1. Invest in a minifridge for your dorm and fill-it-up with healthy snacks such as fresh fruits and veggies, instead of buying last minute junk food.

2. Avoid last minute trips to the convenience store which is filled with fat-laden, sugared, and salted snack foods.

3.  Go to the salad bar where prices recently went down so take advantage of it. You pay by weight so avoid going overboard on heavier items.

4. Avoid the grill for the most part as it serves mostly French fries, cheeseburgers, onion rings and other fried foods which are likely to add to your weight gain.
