Weight Loss and Long-Term Health

I’m really struggling with my weight, and I feel like I’m running out of options. I’ve tried a bunch of different diets and a bunch of different workout regimens, but nothing seems to work. Lately, I’ve been thinking about trying out diet pills. My friends say that’s a bad idea, but at this point, I’m ready to try anything. Experts, what can I do? Is weight loss just impossible for me?

Simple Ways to Eat Healthy

I’d like to start eating healthier. I want to fuel my body with healthier stuff, lose weight, and maybe build some muscle. I’m willing to work out, and I’m willing to eat stuff besides my favorite (unhealthy) foods. But what I’d really like to avoid is putting a ton of time and effort into what I eat. I feel like I’m busy enough, and I also feel like I would quickly lose interest if I had to track a bunch of vitamins and stuff.

Is there any way to develop better eating habits without putting in a whole lot of effort?

Cars, Costs, and Canny Considerations!

I’m a college senior graduating this coming May with a degree in political science. I’ve already landed a great gig near Harrisburg, PA, which is where I’ll be moving to immediately after my graduation. While I’m definitely excited about relocating and starting my career, the one major obstacle I’m facing is not having a car.

That wasn’t an issue while spending the last four years attending an inner city school with everything necessary to live within walking, biking, or bussing distance. During the few occasions when that wasn’t enough, I’ve simply relied on Uber or Lyft. Unfortunately, that won’t necessarily be the case where I’m headed.

My parents lent me one of their cars throughout high school. As a result, I’ve never owned a car myself. How should I go about getting one?

Healthy Habits

This year, my new year’s resolution is to get healthier. I don’t just mean working out and eating better, though. I need to get better about all aspects of my health, including basic stuff like scheduling doctor’s appointments. I’m trying to come up with a list of the biggest changes I can make and the most important stuff I can do for my health, so I thought I’d turn to the experts and ask what sorts of things college kids like me tend to ignore. I want to find the things I should be doing that will make a real impact on my overall health, so that I can be healthier and feel better (and happier, I hope). Thanks in advance!
