As a student, I know it’s very hard to juggle between school, work, friends, gym, cooking, studying and having some me-time. Of course, just like many other people, I want to have fun, do good at school, go to the gym and eat healthy. But (sadly) all those things cost time and money: things students wish they had more. I’ll give away some tips on how to be (or remain) a true Fit Girl student!
5 tips to a healthier diet
- Have a healthy breakfast
Your body needs energy to start a new day, so nourish your body with an awesome breakfast, oats for example. Click here to find out why oats are awesome.
- Prepare a kickass lunch
I love my bed and I never want to leave it, especially when I have to get out. To give myself more quality time with my bed in the morning I prep my lunch or dinner the evening before.
- Don’t forget to bring some healthy snacks
To prevent unhealthy snacking at the school cafeteria I bring my own healthy snacks with me. My favorites are nuts, dates, carrots and a banana.
- Eat your veggies
Just like my mother always said. A lot of people don’t reach their daily recommended amount of veggies and that’s too bad because they’re amazing for your body! Why? Vegetables are a great source of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals and they’re low in calories.
- Keep track of your own workout and health journal
It helps me to see my progress, which will motivate me even more to continue. It’s a great way to monitor your workouts and reach your goals. Next month I will share my own workout and health journal with you!
And remember: you can work your ass off in the gym, but if your diet isn’t on point, your body won’t be either.
