How to Avoid the "Freshman 15"

The Dreaded Freshman 15!

College students do tend to pack on the pounds during their first year at school for a host of reasons from late-night eating fests, all-you-can-eat dining halls, lack of exercise and alcohol use.  Going to college is a big change for young adults.  They are confronted with food any hour of the day or night and there is no one telling them what or when to eat.  They have to learn to choose both what and when to eat for themselves, and they are also finding there is no one telling them what to do, so they may forget to exercise.  College is about the time when young women switch to an adult female metabolism.  They may not be able to eat as much as they used to and still keep their weight stable.  This is where I come in.  We will talk about ways to avoid gaining the “FRESHMEN FIFTEEN”.  I will teach you how to navigate the college cafeteria, how to skinny the salad bar.  I will teach you how to eat before taking a test.  We will discuss ways to fit exercise into your college life.  By learning how to eat properly you will not only increase your energy but look and feel great!!!   We will also discuss alcohol.  I will educate you on the calories and on the effects, and how it truly inhibits your senses and food choices and consumption of food.  Late night binging and eating on a continuous basis will have the Freshmen 15 packed on in NO TIME.
