Being a college student means pinching every penny, functioning under high amounts of stress, and often eating on the go.  With such busy schedules and limited resources college students often have a hard time maintaining their weight, let alone losing weight.  However, weight loss doesn’t have to feel impossible.  There are affordable weight loss plans for college students.

Medical-weight-loss-nycIn most cases weight loss plans for college students don’t require drastic changes.  A small shift in your mindset and simple changes in your diet can make all the difference.

With your busy schedule you may find it difficult to eat healthy.  Often college students are living off of inexpensive boxed meals like Ramen noodles or Macaroni and cheese.  These types of foods, while quick and inexpensive will not give you the balanced nutrition that you need.  Better nutrition will help you to cope with stress and feel better, it might even help you perform better in the classroom.  Focus on getting plenty of fruits and vegetables.  Cutting up a carrot into small pieces and carrying with you is a great snack food that will help you get the nutrients you need without piling on a lot of empty calories.

Never skip a meal

Even when you don’t have time to sit down and eat a healthy breakfast you need to give your body something to jolt your metabolism and start your day.  If you have to eat on the run try a breakfast bar, a bagel, or a piece of a fruit.

Keep healthy snacks on hand

Dried fruit, pretzels, cut up fresh fruits, yogurt are all going to be healthier choices for you than a trip to the vending machine.

Limit sugar and alcohol

Both sugar and alcohol add a lot of calories to your diet but have no other real nutritional value to give.  Limiting these in your diet will help you feel better and eliminate unnecessary calories.

Drink lots of water

Water helps a number of organs in your body, including your kidneys and muscles.  It also help you to stay hydrated and is an essential part of a balanced diet.

Even with all of this you may still need to find affordable weight loss plans that offer support and advice to help you achieve your weight loss goals.  To schedule your free consultation please click below or call (212) 759-8118.
