Exams are coming soon at my school, which means it’s time to start studying and cramming.
Problem is, I usually eat all sorts of crap during exam periods because I’m too busy to spend any time preparing foods. I usually end up eating tons of junk food, microwave dinners, fast food, or sometimes no food at all.
I’m thinking this time around I’m going to at least try to eat somewhat healthily during exams. I was thinking I might stock up on cottage cheese and frozen fruit, maybe get a meal-replacement product for my study sessions at the library.
Do you guys have any other/better ideas?
Good luck on your exams. I have a lot of experience with this. You’ll want healthy, convenient food that you can eat without preparation or even much attention. You should also be able to just throw it in a backpack and go if you’ll be leaving your residence to study or will be at the school most of the day. Examples include: protein bars, beef jerky, nuts (convenient ones not sunflower seeds in the shell), some fruit (such as apples, bananas, pears, but not oranges).
Most likely you won’t be fully satisfied by only foods like this and you’ll want a hot meal. If you go with fast food make wiser choices and justify it with some convenient body weight exercise like pushups and your physique should maintain through exams. If you need to pull an all nighter try to get by with green tea, black coffee, and/or Spike instead of soda.
