Goodbye Fun Runs

OK, so we can’t take credit for the term “fun run.” It’s the phrase Registered Dietician Andrea N. Giancoli used when she was in college, and is exactly what it sounds like — those late night junk food runs. As any student knows, it’s a normal part of college life. “A lot of junk, like candy, can seem like a reward, especially when you’ve been studying all night,” Giancoli explains.

But — and you know what’s coming — eating junk is not a healthy way to deal with stress, and certainly not a healthy way to eat. So if you want to skip the extra poundage associated with stress, say goodbye to fun runs and hello to healthy snacking.
