The Subway Diet

Image via Wikipedia One of my friends is trying this diet out. She wants to see how it works with working out. I think it is probably one of the better diets because it is just basically eating healthy. Eating healthy and working out is the key success to loosing weight. Her version of the diet is more like the second one I found, but there are two known versions according to everydiet.com The first version contains: Breakfast: Small bowl of cereal with skimmed milk. Black coffee with sweetener. Lunch: Turkey Subway Sandwich. Diet Pepsi. Dinner: Vegetarian Subway Sandwich. Water.

Great Ways to Keep Off the Freshman 15

Image via Wikipedia College is a lifechanging experience and if you can make it through your first year, you are a lot less likely to gain extra weight down the road. Keeping it off is hard when the experience is so new, and students are adjusting, but with these tips, it should be a little easier to keep off the weight. 1. Walk everywhere.When you are a freshman, you probably don’t have a car so this makes it easier, but walking is something simple that can make the difference. Walking back and forth on campus throughout the day can add

CARBS, CARBS, CARBS

Image via Wikipedia CARBS are what take over people in college. I am not even kidding. Carbs make up so much of a person’s diet and it is only getting worse. 1. Most of my friends do not know how to cook, so they just make pasta, or rice, or pizza, or Ramen everyday. 2. Foods consisting of carbs are the cheapest foods to buy for poor college students. Potatoes are $2 a bag, Ramen is 25 cents per pack, rice is $1 per box, pizza is $4 for an entire frozen pizza, and pasta is $1 for a whole

College Eating Requires Self-Control

Image by americaspower via Flickr Walking onto campus my first year, I remember thinking things would be different from there on out, and they were…. My freshman year, I was given the option of having 15 meals a week, or 19 meals a week. What a choice right? During each week, I would be lucky if I swiped 10 to 12 times. So first off, I was wasting money each week and they weren’t allowed to roll over. On top of this, during each swipe, you are allowed to eat as much food as you want. Not only does each

Dining Statistics

I went to I-Crave today, the on campus café I use to work at and asked if I could just stand back and watch. I do not work there anymore because I got a marketing internship, but my boss, Jo, said it wouldn’t be a problem. I was at I-Crave for about 30 minutes during the busy rush so I was able to view interactions and what was happening. In the 30 minute period, almost all the food ordered at the grill was either a cheeseburger or chicken fingers. Even though there are healthier options liked grilled chicken or a

Digging Deeper In

I am starting an experiment at my house this week without telling anyone. I am going to watch everything people eat, but not let them know they are being recorded. I think this will change the food items consumed for Lauren and Sam mostly. I usually always eat about the same food regardless, and Lu says she is never hungry. I think this hidden investigation will make a difference.  Even since last night, I found out more food my roommates ate that they didn’t share because it was after the fact. Lauren had ended up eating mashed potatoes for lunch

UT Rocket Dollars are BAD

Image via Wikipedia If you go to the University of Toledo, you are given a rocket card that is used for everything. It can get you into the workout center, swipe you into your dorm, get you into special computer labs, and even contains money on it. This is all great and makes campus run smoother, but the money part is not all good. In my opinion, the rocket and dining dollars put onto the card promote unhealthy eating. The majority of people who have this money on their card is freshman because it comes with every meal plan, but

What We Eat?

College is a great experience, but with college comes a lot of responsibility. Trying to juggle work, school, and clubs, all while eating healthy and working out. I find it very difficult to always do this, but I still try to stay on top of it. Like today, I have been going since 7:30 am and will not be free until midnight. At midnight, I am planning on going to the rec and working out not because I like to stay up that late, but because it’s the only time available. At the house I live at, the four of

Tucson Restaurant News: Meet the Chef of The Abbey, Ginny Wooters

Tucson Restaurant News: Meet the Chef of The Abbey One of my favorite restaurants is JaxKitchen. Owners Brian and Sandy Metzger named Jax after their son. So it makes perfect sense that their new second restaurant, The Abbey, is named after their daughter. Plus the goddess for equality of the sexes will be happy too. The Abbey will offer distinctive American comfort food in a warm, neighborhood setting on the southeast corner of Sunrise and Kolb, overlooking Ventana Canyon.  Patrons will enjoy spectacular foothills views from virtually every seat in the restaurant, whether they choose to sit in the main
