Mindless eating solutions

Most dieters probably try to slim down on will power alone, but Celebrity Fitness and Nutrition Expert Felicia Romero says there's a better way. She's here to help us overcome mindless eating, to keep our fitness goals on track. 

If you look at most dieters, they try to become slim by will power. They try to resist every single thing. The problem of becoming slim by will power is it's a 24/7 sort of job, it's never ending -- and often doesn't work because people feel deprived.
Instead celebrity fitness and nutrition expert Felicia Romero recommends changing up your environment. According to Felicia, most people are unaware of their decisions and it's very easy to let themselves be influenced by the things around them, like having candy readily available of the size of the bowl they're using.

  • A disorganized kitchen can lead to high stress levels and over-eating, so if chaotic describes your kitchen it is time to break out the cleaning gloves and trash bin.
  • Smaller dishware can help decrease over-eating, but the best solution is to know your portion sizes. 
  • Purchase a spice rack or make your own to bring more flavor and excitement to healthy eating.
  • Days can be hectic making it difficult to prioritize a healthy meal. But if you have an extra 30 minutes on your day off, it's possible to prep a week's worth of healthy meals (and save yourself stressful evenings later). 
  • Keeping unhealthy snacks out of sight may decrease our likelihood to indulge. Place healthy foods front and center making them convenient to grab.
  • Label prepped meals with nutrition facts and ingredients to keep you accountable throughout the day and make you more conscious about what you're eating.
  • Over-indulging in snackable foods is one of the easiest ways to accidentally sideline a healthy diet. Eliminate binges by packing individual portions as soon as you bring those favorite snack foods home from the store.

Rankings of the 2017 Best College Campuses are in and Grand Canyon University has cracked the Top 10.

  • Niche.com ranks 1,423 four-year colleges and universities. GCU is the only university in Arizona to make the Top 10 list. They're ranked right alongside Yale, Stanford and Liberty University.
  • The rankings are based on key statistics and student reviews using data from the U.S. Department of Education. Among the criteria are the quality of the campus, classrooms and labs, food, housing, local area and safety. 
  • Given GCU's explosive growth, new construction and $1 billion investment in its campus over the last 10 years, it's no surprise that GCU cracked the top 10.
  • Among the university's investments, GCU just opened six gleaming new laboratories loaded with cutting-edge equipment in its 170,000-square-foot engineering building. Six more labs are in the works for the spring semester. 
  • What makes the labs cool? Very rarely do you see equipment like this at the undergraduate level. 
  • Cracking the Top 10 Best College Campuses comes on the heels of another big ranking: GCU's dorms were ranked No. 3 in the nation by niche.com for their amenities, affordability, cleanliness and safety.
