what do you guys reckon? do you think there's any correlation between how much you look after yourself/eat healthily/maintain a healthy weight and how well you are viewed by universities?

Studies have shown the more active you are the better your chance of getting higher grades, eg it takes dedication of one to religiously go to the gym, if one applies that commitment and discipline to studies he or she will most likely archive higher grades compared to someone who lacks those skills. However it's purely subjective but there's no harm in trying.

Not really, as long as you're getting good grades you'll be fine. Unless you go into your interview looking a state...

this is along the lines of what i thought; if you find it easy to stick to a healthy lifestyle, you can project those traits of strong mental resolve and discipline onto your academic life and get more out of your grades, i guess.
