Coming from school and dining hall food, it can be hard to resist all of the home-cooked meals and restaurants you’ve missed. A good way to stay fit is to portion control by preparing your meals at home and proportioning the right amount of veggies, carbs, protein, and so on.

2. Eating Healthy Snacks Between Meals
