Match those Macros

“Health is Wealth.” Most of the time, we can be sucked into the world of a busy college student and forget to eat. It’s a great reminder that what we put in our bodies can determine our performance and productivity. Each meal should be composed of a healthy amount of protein, vegetables and less carbs/fruit. Protein satiates hunger without the energy dips that make you sleepy in the afternoon. Vegetables are healthy carbs that provide fiber. Our brains need carbs to help us focus on process study material, so eat your veggies. Shy away from processed refined carbs (eg. white rice, desserts, chocolate, etc) as they increase levels of fatigue and make it harder to focus.  

Remember: Having a well-balanced meal can be life changing especially when you’re studying for midterms.
