With finals near on the horizon, I have found myself enjoying more nights studying with pizza, Hardees, Taco Bell or the ever faithful Wednesday wing nights. Feeling like I needed to make a change, I visited a nutritionist on campus who listened to what I was eating, when I was eating and how much I was eating. We discussed what I could do to help with my current dietary situation. I still get to go out and partake in those yummy cheap wing nights, but I now have set times when I should be eating those larger meals. I’ve been cutting down on how much I eat during my main meals, and in between every meal I’m trying to fit in a healthy snack like an apple or granola bar.

I have also found that Dailyburn.com (which is completely free!) helps me keep track of what I’m eating in a day. It breaks down how many calories I should be consuming of what types of foods and tells me the workout regime I should be trying to apply.

So…If you love eating your zesty ranch wings but are a little worried about how tight your pants are fitting, I recommend you visit the lovely nutritionists in the IWC for all your stressful eating weight gain problems. ☺

And don’t forget how awesomely HUGE the new workout portion of the IWC is!

Hours of operation, health information, and information on nutritionists is available at the Health Services website.
