Most people gain the freshman 15. However, you can lose it.
At home, it is completely impossible to get anywhere on foot. But, on campus, most places are accessible by pedestrians. Walking is a great mode of transportation when you live on campus. It will build muscle and help you burn off fat. Try to walk quickly between your classes to get your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes a day. By the end of the day, when you return to your on campus dorm room, you should be sweaty and tired.
When you’re tired after a long day of classes, you might think that you should call the pizza place and get something delivered. Unfortunately, doing this on a regular basis is really hard on your wallet. So, you need to find an alternative. Use your campus meal plan. Instead of eating the greasy, disgusting dorm food that your college offers, eat salad. Unlike the other food that tastes nasty, salad is something that you can prepare for yourself. You control what goes into it. Best of all, it is the healthiest food available most of the time. Your waistline and wallet will thank you.
Hitting the Gym
Most colleges offer free or subsidized gym access to all of their students. Take advantage of the proximity of the gym so that you can lose the freshman 15. Make it an everyday habit to go to the gym at least once a day. Go with a friend to make it fun and to make sure that you both get there consistently. Do a variety of lifting and cardio. Get your heart rate up for 30 minutes or more every time.
