The average college student living in a residence hall will gain at least 25 pounds in their freshman year of college. Part of this gain in weight is due to the changes in the body’s metabolism as students are beginning to become adults rather than teenagers. However, a lot of the increase in weight while in college is because students are now 100 percent responsible for choosing the times that they eat along with selecting foods and beverages.

Here are a few additional tips that students can follow in order to remain healthy while in college and afterward.
