I would like to know if any one has any tips on how to avoid the dreaded freshman 15. I just started college and I would like to stay in shape but I am a nursing student and also work everyday so I won't have time to go to the gym as much as I would like.

If you don't have the time to workout just make sure you eat healthy and you shouldn't gain that dreaded 15!

You have to make time to workout at least one hour a day and join intermeral sports teams

First have a positive attitude and surround yourself with positive people to help stay motivated ! Maybe even try to find a workout bud!

Walk/jog to your classes, take the stairs. Find a healthy section in The cafe. And when your alone in your dorm. Sit ups and push ups . Did those and I lost weight XD.

No problem!I know that feeling. And it might get worse if your friends love to eat out like mine does.as long as you stick to it. You should be good

Eat healthy and try not to drink so much alcohol. A good chunk of the dreaded freshman 15 is put on by poor eating habits and alcohol.

It's my first year in college as well , but it haven't started yet( this September) .  I'm pretty nervous about it but hopefully everything will be ok.

College campuses are nice and big. During my  undergrad, I would walk at 15-30 mins three 3 times on campus to get to different classes. I would use the stairs rather than elevators. I would purposely park far away so I could get a good walk workout. 

All the best for a new semester!!

I am in college, too, a Sophomore. As long as you watch your food, you should be fine. I always walk to class the long way, purposely make my backpack heavier, and park far. I eat salad at the cafeteria and stand in my science labs. I did not gain any weight. Also, the stress can cause weight gain. Keep up with your work. Study in advance for the tests and do the assignments early!!!! This will make you less stressed out. Good luck!

Fellow college student. While you are still learning your schedule just go when and for how long you can. Once you get your schedule down and initial stress wears off you really start to find time :)

Don't facilitate the convenience of unhealthy food. Plan what your going to eat daily, if you don't think about it and plan it, unhealthy food will become an easy quick option. Plan!
