Freshman 15, First year Fatties, Fresher Spread, or Fresher Five. Whatever you want to call it it’s a statistical fact that the first year at college have a tendency of making it’s mark on your waistline. Even though the 15 lbs of weight gain is somewhat of a myth and the real number is closer to 3, the fact still remains; if you don’t pay attention your health might deteriorate during your freshman year.
I got this nice piece of infographics from thebestcolleges.org which have some good points on how to avoid gaining weight while at college. Of course the tips are also applicable if you’re not in college.
