Within the first six months of college freshman gain fifteen pounds, this is called “Freshman 15.”
There are many ways students can avoid gaining excessive weight here on Southeastern’s campus. Martin Balisteri, the General Manager of campus dining says, “You should always watch the portions of food you eat and check the nutrition board located upstairs in the student union in the cafe to know how much vitamins or sodium you’re putting in your body.”
It is suggested that people eat at least three meals a day; breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and people should not skip meals.
People usually skip breakfast just to have a little extra time to sleep even though this isn’t a good thing to do.
On Southeastern’s Campus Dining, there are many healthy snacks you can grab and go. There is fruit located right next to the salad bar, in addition to the cereal bars that are available. Southeastern’s campus also has two main markets in the area, therefore you can stop by and grab a healthy snack, but first read the nutrition labels to see what you’re consuming.
Many freshman often forget when to eat, what you eat and when you eat it plays plays an important role in the body’s digestion.
Exercising is a great way to burn calories and stay fit. Don’t gain extra weight, be great.
