Nutrition

Proper nutrition helps maintain a healthy body weight and improves energy, concentration, and academic success. Unfortunately, during college it is common for eating habits to decline. For example, you may snack late at night, overeat, or become dehydrated. The combination of a balanced diet and physical activity promotes better health.

When you are properly nourished your body will be well prepared to cope with daily demands. If you eat a well-balanced diet you will derive a wealth of benefits. Your energy level will increase and your concentration will improve. In addition your skin will clear and your immune system will be better equipped to fight disease.
