Wellhaus’s Dietitian, Leah Silberman speaks to Spoon University about The Glowing Skin Diet

She’s quoted saying:

1. Save the late night food for weekends

Having a fourth meal at 3 am more than once or twice a week will add up, trust us. If you are actually feeling hungry after a night out, have some go-to options that you won’t regret in the morning. Think of a whole grain cereal, whole grain toast with peanut butter or natural popcorn.

2. Navigate the dining hall like a pro

There are a few small changes you can make in the dining hall that’ll make a big difference.

3. Snack smart

Stress eating while studying, or mindlessly snacking while watching TV is a habit many of us are familiar with. Avoid overeating at snack times by pre-portioning your snacks.

4. Don’t eat less to drink more

We guarantee it will backfire and you will either end up overeating late night or you may have a less classy evening when the alcohol gets to your head faster than usual. We recommend having 3 balanced meals and 1-2 light snacks whether you’re drinking or not.

5. Move it

Walk to class rather than taking the bus or catching a ride. It’s also a good idea to make a weekly exercise goal with a friend. You are more likely to make it to the gym if you plan to go with a friend than if you plan to go alone. Hold each other accountable.

6. Drink up

We’re talking water here. Staying hydrated is a key component of weight management. Thirst is often masked as hunger, and after a night of drinking your body is especially dehydrated. Carry a 32-oz. water bottle with you and make a point to fill it up at least twice throughout the day.
