I find that when I'm studying I find being paleo harder because uni isn't very paleo friendly and yeah less time to prepare food doesn't help either. Whats your experience?

I live at home not in a dorm, but yes, it['ss hard to keep paleo in college. I spend so much time studying and I need to constantly keep some chocolate or nuts at my side for munching so my attention span will last longer than that of a flea

Lift heavy 3-4x/week (mostly compound lifts), sprint 2-3x/week (100 yd sprints at the track), walk 2+ miles daily (during my lunch at work) then some random short runs and bodyweight stuff when I feel like it.
