For Liam, it was hard to eat healthy in high school. It was even harder when Liam entered college. Everywhere he went, it seemed as if he was surrounded by unhealthy food.

From the dining hall pizza to the coffee shops at every corner, it was hard for him to eat healthy every day. He also had to balance many activities and classes.

He felt he had no time to cook or find healthy food. He often stopped at fast food places and got quick snacks.

The unhealthy food often left Liam feeling tired. He did not have the energy at the end of the day and often felt sleepy.

So, Liam decided he needed to alter his eating habits. He wanted to stop eating so unhealthy, but he did not know how.

He decided to start by cutting out coffee. At first it was hard since he drank coffee almost every day. By the end of the week, he felt better. He was also saving a lot of money by not having to buy a drink every day, which quickly added up.

The next step he took was to incorporate more healthy food into his diet. Instead of eating burgers and sandwiches so often, Liam decided to eat salads every other day.

He found that salads were just as quick and cheap as burgers. This made him feel more refreshed and energized. Salads even tasted better than burgers.

He found himself less sleepy and more focused in classes. Liam felt so good with his diet change. He planned on cooking once a week every week. He felt ambitious and loved the changes he was making in his life.
