Always pack a snack or two, always. Always have healthy meal options available to you, either simple fresh meals or frozen. Know what healthy options are available to you on campus/on the way home (if you eat fast food, etc). Plan meals ahead - log them ahead, if necessary.

This is the best advice which has helped me succeed through the end of undergrad/beginning of grad school. I can't emphasize "always pack a snack" enough if you're like me, and make poor choices if you get too hungry. I lost a great deal of my weight before I ever started working out. If you can, that's awesome! If you can't, don't stress out about it. Don't stress out about not getting to work out during exams, etc, when you're very busy. Focus on making healthy eating habits and stick with them.
