2.    Trade Mcdonalds, Burger king, and fried chicken resturants for deli's and meat & three place. 

3.    Avoid eating pizza more than once a week.  If you must comsume pizza, eat only two slices along with a salad to supplement.

4.    Keep bottled water with you at all times.   If you notice, the in shape people on campus  always have water with them drinking it.  Thats not a coincidence.

5.    Replace sodas with juice.  If you need some flavor add crystal light packets to your water.
