It is difficult to eat healthy, we all know that. From hectic schedules to the affordability and convenience of fast food, there are a million excuses we all use for having poor diets. But now is the time to stop making excuses and finally get healthy. These articles were posted from March 12-16 and are chock-full of great advice that will make it easier to start eating healthier.

Check it out when you have time.

She even gives some advice for finding cheaper organic products.

This article posted by Amber at www.amerloveslogan.com is fun and upbeat. She gives tips on what she does to eat healthy and even talks about her experience on the South Beach Diet. On top of that, you’ll find impressive ways to organize your weekly lunches for work that will save you time and money. Got a sweet tooth? Amber does it again and wow’s us with a genius idea to satisfy that afternoon sugar craving without breaking the bank—or the belt. Give it a quick read when you have a chance.

#7- Eating Right at College
It happens to all of us. We go off to college, eat too much pizza and drink too much booze and end up gaining 15 (or more) pounds during freshman year. Even though these healthy eating tips posted by Riia at riiaeatsright.tumblr.com are intended for college students, many of them are applicable to everyone. I especially like what she mentioned about finding other social activities that one can enjoy other than eating. She suggests taking a friend and going rollerblading, jogging, or playing tennis instead of going out to a restaurant. This post is definitely worth a quick read.
