All The Things You Thought Were Healthy In College That So Obviously Weren’t

Going off tocollege is an amazing experience.

However, every student knows living on campus can totally wreakhavoc on your healthy habits.

Between buffet-style dining halls, late night snacking sessions and bingedrinking on the reg, there are all sorts of things that will make you pack on the pounds and gain the dreaded Freshman 15 if youre not careful.

We all did certain things during our glorious years as college students to ensure that we were following a somewhat healthy routine.

Whether it was getting your daily dose of cardio by going out in heels, toning your arms with a couple of keg stand workouts on the weekends or cutting your calorie intake by opting for healthier drinks like Natty Light, we made all sorts of efforts to keep ourselves in top-notch physical condition.

But literally none of those things were actually healthy. They were the lesser of two evils.

But hey, we all seemed to make it through college without destroying our bodies, so I guess we must have been doing something right.

Here are some of the healthy things we all used to do during our college days that definitely were NOT healthy:

You thought walking to the bar in heels counted as cardio.


You only ate healthy fast food, like burrito bowls from Chipotle.


You made healthy drinking choices by opting for light beer at frat parties


or skipped out on the calorie-packed beer and only bingedon hard liquor.


You thought keg stands sufficed as a muscle-toning arm workout.


You thought drinking sugar-free Red Bull was better for you than guzzling down endless cups of coffee.


You thought chasing your vodka with orange juice counted as adding an extra serving of fruit to your diet.


You gotyour daily dose of vitamins by downing bottles of Vitamin Water on the reg.


You thought the olives on your supreme pizza totally counted as eating your vegetables.


You starved yourself during the day so you could drink more alcohol at night.


And you took breaks from partying by staying home from the bar one night out of the month (because one night was obviously enough time to heal your liver).
