    Exercise is a key factor in living a long, healthy life. Most colleges have a fitness center or gym on the premises, which is open to all enrolled students and faculty. Why not begin your day by stopping in and having a small workout? Ease into it gently..20 minutes every morning. At the end of the week, you will have accumulated over 1 1/2 hours..which is better than none at all. As you begin to feel better, you’ll find yourself increasing the time you spend there.

    As for diet, focus on eating foods high in protein and fiber. Blueberries are great, but so are all berries. All fruits are good for you, as well as vegetables. The darker, the better. Dark greens, and salad greens. Beans are great for you, as well as nuts. A small handful provides your body with vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and healthy fats. Also eat lowfat dairy foods such as lowfat milk, yogurt, cottage cheese. Eggs are full of protein too. Two eggs a day as part of a healthy diet is perfectly safe to eat. And don’t forget your whole grains…oatmeal, wheat, bulgur, rye, brown rice, flaxseeds, and barley. Lean meats are also essential. Stay away from fatty cuts, and the skin on chicken. Go for the chicken breast, lean beef, and fish.

    The best route to healthy living:
    Eat a balanced, natural diet. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Eat 100% whole grains olny. (such as 100% whole wheay bread, brown rice, and whole wheat pasta. Just because something has the word "wheat" doesnt make it healthy. it has to be 100% to get ALL the esential vitamins) also using LOWFAT dairy products, such as 1% or less milk and cheeses as they have a lot of saturated fat and cholesterol. Also choosing LEAn cuts of meat (turkey and chicken BREAST, certain fishes. Limit red meats to no more than 2 x per week if you must have them and use portion control. Drink at least half your bodys weight in ounces of water, and limit/avoid packaged, boxed foods and sugary drinks, such as sodas, teas, juices, alcohol etc..
    Make sure everything is balanced, as you dont just want a lot of "protein" and no veggies (just as an example)
    as for working out, its reccommended to be doing something active everyday just for health benifits (not including weight loss) you dont have to do it all at one time you can break it up in small incremants through out the day if you musy.
    both of these things are important to lose a few pounds, but more impotantly to keep you healthy, strong and void of diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and hypertention. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me.

    Talk to your school councilor or nutritionist. However here goes – blueberries are a start, balanced nutritious meals protein shakes for breakfast and lunch and a colorful meal at dinner along with healthy snacks. easier said than done. You probable need about 125 grams of protein daily good protein shakes will have about 18 to 24 grams each also pay attention to calories I am guessing 1800 to 2000 daily. eggs 6 grams of protein,
    ilk 1 cup 8g, cheese 1oz 6g yogurt 7g, meats 3oz 24 oz salmon or haddock 3oz 16 grams.
    What you need is nutrition and balance. Protein burns fat in you body and too much will become fat do a little walk or jog or play a game of hoops touch f/ball you will be surprise at how you will feel and will probable be more alert and focused on your studies. Hope that this helps
