Excerpt: 'The Dorm Room Diet,' by Daphne Oz

Unfortunately, sometimes the stress, boredom, or even happiness we experience at college can prove too overwhelming for even the most disciplined eaters. Step 5 will show you how to navigate some of the most common college danger zones in which you'll be tempted to let food have its way with you. Step 6 describes the importance of exercise and explains how to tailor a weekly workout regime around your busy schedule—even in the tiniest of dorm rooms—with the help of celebrity trainer Joel Harper. In Step 7, we'll look at how important natural remedies and supplements can be to make up for nutritional lapses, as well as to treat minor ailments. Step 8 presents practical ways to relax and rejuvenate yourself right on campus, so you can stay mentally and emotionally healthy, as well. Step 9 will help you to see how you can start demanding access to health everywhere you go by becoming a conscious eater, day in and day out. This means knowing where your food came from, how it was grown, how it got to you, and whether or not you're going to choose to support these practices—you have all the power! And finally, Step 10 will give you all sorts of fun-to-make recipes to give your eating plan variety and pizzazz. My hope is that, once you have all the information in front of you, you'll become as passionate about "living consciously" as I have and join me in spreading the word. Trust me: we'll have fun.
