College Survival Guide: The Freshman 15 is REAL!

Source
Before entering college the one thing we all hear about is the freshman 15. For those who for some reason you don't know what that is, it is the 15 pounds you gain from eating at the cafeteria and the all you can eat. (Or for some it is the 15 pounds you loose from going to the on-campus gym all the time.)So This is just a quick post about how to avoid gaining that extra 15 pounds!

So the first way is the most obviouse: AVOID THE TEMPTATION! Avoid over eating in the cafeteria. It is the simplest way but you are also really tempted because you have all you can eat three meals a day. So the biggest key here is to make sure your meals are balanced and your diet is balanced this way you can stay healthy and not over eat or gain that extra pudge. One tip for eating a balenced meal is to go onto .

The other way to avoid the freshman 15 is exercise! You are probably thinking "ugh of course Kim we know" and my response is: well then do it! Take advantage of that on-campus gym. Most universities and even community colleges have a gym that is free for student use so go ahead and take advantage. Or if you are not really much of a gym person you can find exercise videos online (believe me there are tons of them on YouTube.) But the one girl I swear by, I talk about her a lot, is Blogilates. Cassey is funny and sweet and you just feel like you are working out with a friend.

So that was my "just a reminder of the obvious" post lol. Good luck avoiding the dreaded Freshman 15!
