A new year marks old disordered eating habits masked as “healthy eating.” Every year until this year, my resolution was to lose weight.

Superfoods like kale, quinoa and chia before that; bulk-up powders and sugary protein shakes “¦ so what should we choose? My vote is: none of the above. Fad diets are just about one of the worst things you can do to sabotage your...

Sleep can often be one of the last things on college students’ minds, even though most students know that they should be getting enough sleep if they want to succeed. Jackie Bevilacqua, coordinator of health services, described the importance of getting enough sleep in college. “Ideally, college students will get between seven and eight hours a night,” Bevilacqua said. “One of the reasons it’s really important for college students is sleep allows you to take...
