The ULTIMATE guide to getting fit in college.

You guys, over the last few months I’ve seen a concerning trend with friends in real life and in the blogging world. It seems that everyone is on a diet but isn’t dieting ‘right.’ I understand that figuring out how to get fit in college is hard because you are stressed, you are busy, and ordering a pizza is so much easier that cooking.
