All Diets Don't Have to End

I want everyone reading this to get comfortable with the thought of dieting: dieting for your own personal goals and dieting under conditions that will lead to your personal success long-term.

Sometimes Ketosis diet users act like carbs and sugars are the enemy.

A lot of the time, people restrict themselves too much when they begin a diet. Then, when they mess up dieters are less likely to start the diet again because they fear failure. It is important for you to tweak all diets to fit into your lifestyle. That way, you won't think of the diet as temporary but instead as a lifestyle change.

With keto, you're "supposed" to limit the amount of fruits and vegetables you eat. For someone who enjoys eating salads and conventionally healthy options, this might be something you tweak on the diet. In cases like this, you would just increase the amount of protein and fats in your diet, limit access sugars aside from the fruits and vegetables you eat, and raise the amount of carbs you're allowed to eat. For a typical keto diet, you would try to remain under 25g of carbs a day, but in this case you might raise your carb intake to 50g a day but still avoid carb-loaded foods such as rice, pasta, and bread.

If you don't tweak the diets you're on, chances are you will give up because it's unrealistic to give up the foods you enjoy eating permanently. Keto can be especially hard at the beginning because your body is starting a new process.

While you're in ketosis, instead of your body burning carbs for energy, your body burns fats because that is all you're eating. This is what leads to such a fast weight loss. With that weight loss comes a lot of responsibility making sure you're providing your body with sufficient nutrients to be in healthy ketosis.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
