Energy Density means calories divided by grams/weight. The low energy density foods are also high nutrient dense foods.
This is so important to remember, especially when people say you can’t be healthy and lose weight without being hungry all the time.
This is so good
I get a lot of questions about carbs, so here’s just some quick information on them! To avoid the inevitable anons, no, I do not think all football players are stupid and all boys in photography class are smart, haha.
One more thing: Fruit is a simple carb! This does not mean it is bad for you. Again, just everything in moderation! Eating healthy has a lot to do with common sense and less to do with charts.
My senior year at Bucknell was by far the most challenging- I was writing an honors thesis, working multiple jobs (while looking for a job!), and taking a full courseload all while maintaining my blog AND (after years of recovery from knee surgeries) becoming a runner for the first time in my life. It was hectic, it was busy, but I kept it all together with the help of a lot of what’s in this guide. I made fitness a priority, but also used that time efficiently. My runs might have been study breaks between thesis work, relaxing time at the end of a day of classes, or the jump start to a busy day early in the morning. By making fitness just as important as everything else in my life, but also by recognizing the limitations of the time I had to give to it, I was able to stay fit without stressing out. I really hope this guide is able to help you as you look forward to this fall semester to make fitness a fun, social, time-effective part of your daily life!
