This time is your time, from birth to age 18 it’s been about you and your family, after graduation it’s all about getting a good job, finding a better half and eventually settling down. However, from the age of 18 until whenever the time is that you graduate – you get to make every decision for what you’re going to do and who you’re going to be. Whether it’s earning your degree, finding your calling in life, or finding yourself.
All of the decisions you make during the time that you spend in college will most likely decide where you spend your time working and making a difference for the next 30 years, who your colleagues and friends are going to be, and the person the world sees you as. If you are spending your time in college drinking without break and eating without concern, you will leave college with a very unhappy liver, a much larger belly, and no outline or pattern for how you eat, drink, workout and basically take care of your body. These effects may not be present now, but bad habits formed now will really take affect once your metabolism starts to slow around age 25. The decisions you make in college about your body will no doubt lay the foundation for your physical behavior for the years to come.
While in college, it’s beneficial to develop a strong foundation of disciplined eating, consistent training, and healthy sleep patterns. When you leave school and really begin to work and/or start a family, there is an endless amount of things that will deter you from keeping and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If a plan is developed throughout college on dieting and exercising while balancing the rest of your life, it will be easier once you’re out of college. Each day will be started automatically with a healthy breakfast, which will give you mental clarity and physical strength that the majority of people neglect. A time for exercise and working out will already have a slot in your schedule, instead of going week to week trying to plan when you’ll work out.
During the college years, your testosterone is at the highest level it will ever be. This is a huge advantage. Most older men would give anything to have the natural high levels of testosterone that you have in your body at this time. Many universities have excellent weight training facilities, and buffet cafeterias full of all the protein and clean carb sources that are needed for muscle building. Time is also a factor; you will most likely have more time to concentrate on you body during college.
College is an ideal time to take advantage of building your body into what you want. You don’t want to become obsessed with it, but little decisions throughout the day can have huge benefits over the course of college, as well as the rest of your life. So be sure to take advantage of all the healthy opportunities you can find!
