My girlfriend and I have decided to try a diet that will help us lose weight but because we're college students we are limited in a bunch of different ways.
- Since we're at school, we're sometimes forced to order fast-food
- even in the dining halls, sometimes are options are very limited (when we get dining hall takeout, soda is our only beverage choice)
- We don't have time / money to cook our own food
- our sleep schedules and eating schedules fluxuate from time to time
Basically, we're trying to set a diet that is effective but takes into account our college lifestyle. Some friends have suggested a couple of things (no eating 4-5 hours before sleeping, no carbs after 8, 5 small meals instead of 3 big ones, etc), but I decided to tap the hive mind for some good ideas.
What's the best way we could drop some fat and eat healthier?
