For Liam, it was hard to eat healthy in high school. It was even harder when Liam entered college. Everywhere he went, it seemed as if he was
surrounded by unhealthy food. From the dining hall pizza to the coffee shops
at every corner, it was hard for him to eat healthy every day. He also had to balance many activities and
classes. He felt he had no time to cook or find healthy
food. He often stopped at fast food places and got
quick snacks. The unhealthy food often left Liam feeling
tired. He did not have the energy at the end of the
day and often felt sleepy. So, Liam decided he needed to alter his eating
habits. He wanted to stop eating so unhealthy, but
he did not know how. He decided to start by cutting out coffee. At first it was hard since he drank coffee
almost every day. By the end of the week, he felt better. He was also saving a lot of money by not having
to buy a drink every day, which quickly added up. The next step he took was to incorporate more
healthy food into his diet. Instead of eating burgers and sandwiches so
often, Liam decided to eat salads every other day. He found that salads were just as quick and
cheap as burgers. This made him feel more refreshed and energized. Salads even tasted better than burgers. He found himself less sleepy and more focused
in classes. Liam felt so good with his diet change. He planned on cooking once a week every week. He felt ambitious and loved the changes he
was making in his life. There you go! Is there anything you think it would be a
good idea to change about your diet? I know sometimes I think that there’s things
I really should change about the way I eat. Let me know by leaving a comment down below. If you’re interested in taking lessons with
