ha no. doesn't happen to me. since I just cycle to my college and still live at home! what my college is like 3 streets from my moms work. and it's just 2 kilometers further than my high school. why would I get an apartment when the college is like a 15 minute drive! half an hour on bike! (yeah the distance for cyclists is shorter)

I feel like I might lose weight in college (I'm a freshman in high school). I'm planning to do marching band, which is pretty strenuous. I'm also probably going to be broke so I can't buy food

eat some salt. or licorice (real licorice) those lemonade ice tea. passion fruit but seriously the salt is the most "effective" it's bad for your blood pressure. well that's what my doctor told me. I have a high blood pressure gene. so it heightens your blood pressure

The only people I knew of who actually gained weight in first year were the ones who partied every weekend and ended up dropping out. Everyone else either stayed the same or lost weight due to the sheer amount of walking/stairs and lack of money for food/alcohol

Let me tell you about the unspoken rules of tech colleges: If you are skinny, you will get skinnier, if you are average or fat you will just get fatter. By graduation 'average' weight people will be just a 15% minority.
Blue Dragon (4 months ago)
+Twelvetree12​ Sorry but here in mainland Europe I have lunch, breakfast and dinner in the menza. Still better than my cooking or fast food.
Twelvetree12 (4 months ago)
I got a say, this seems to be mostly a US thing, as most people at UK unis are in self-catered halls or flat shares, meaning most people learn to cook and are relatively healthy. There are always exceptions, but that's true in my experience.
Blue Dragon (7 months ago)
+Ohmygodwhy _ Plus people from non-tech colleges eat regularly  from student restauraunts as well but they do stay fit.
Blue Dragon (7 months ago)
+Ohmygodwhy _​ People like that are an exception not the rule. Plus it is not a question of how well you cook, it is a question of self discipline.

`if I already spend most of my life sitting playing games and watching videos inside, and am continually failing to gain weight despite trying (6'1" and 125 pounds) I am still gonna manage to get overweight as a freshmen?

Same height as you. I went to gym and ate more, gained 20lb of muscle in a year. Never too late man.
TheIrishPinata98 (10 months ago)
+Enoan if you actually want to gain some weight, eat like shit and go to the gym for like a month, you'll put on like 10 to 15 pounds
Isaac Nunez (1 year ago)
+Enoan Well everyones metabolism slows down at some point, some sooner than others but if your metabolism slows down you might easily reach 140.

+Enoan lol yer good. More relatable to people with more avergae metabolisms
TheIrishPinata98 (1 year ago)
I pretty much stayed the same weight freshman year. working out and having to walk to walk like 2 miles to and from class would shave a few pounds off, then getting hammered and eating 4 gordita crunch wraps at taco bell 4 to 5 times a week would gain it all back. It was actually a beautiful cycle

Actually whether a wrestler wants to gain or lose weight depends on where they are in their current weight class.

Gene Glagolev (11 months ago)
+Andrew Bow Same. College is when I started gaining confidence and working on myself. In grade school and high school I was an unsightly fat fuck, but in college I just picked myself up and began exercising 5 days a week. Now, the popular fit jocks and hot chicks from high school are 250+ lb. blimps with 3+ kids and failing marriages and I'm.... A single 24 year old who's in good shape but still has crippling anxiety issues that keep him from talking to the opposite sex. ...Yeah, I guess we all lost.

GhostyLizardX (2 years ago)
I go to college next year, and I know as a senior in high school you probably have a lot more time on your hands than in college, but I still want to continue to go to the gym and stay at a healthy weight. I think in some colleges you have to make "meal plans" or you'll be broke, but hey, those are healthy, right... 
Lulu Calliope (1 year ago)
+GhostyLizardX I'm going to college at the end of next month! I read a book with a lot of tips for college students, and it said that the Freshman 15 is more like the Freshman 5. According to the book, you should fill half of your plate with veggies, then divide the rest of it between protein, whole grains, and fruit. Drink plenty of water, and when you see a pizza at a party, eat only a slice or two, not half of it! I think you'll be fine! Good luck! :)
EbonysBlaze (1 year ago)
+GhostyLizardX if it's just about weight, the less meat, dairy, and eggs you eat and the more calories from whole foods you eat the leaner you'll be long term. Good luck, have a blast!
DrJohnZoidberg125 (2 years ago)
Hey just sign up for a sport, like just a club sport it doesn't have to be varsity. I see it as a way to, stay fit, take a break from homework, and make friends. Good luck. *thumbs up*

You have no idea how fucking happy I am that they mentioned wrestlers at the very end of this song. As a wrestler that hopes to continue on in college, I was thinking about those 15 pounds the whole damn song, and how I'm so totally screwed. Lol, but also FML.

I lost 15 pounds my Freshman Year. I do not know why though
dashielle98 (2 years ago)
I never understood the freshman 15 thing.  I lost weight when I started college because I didn't have as much time to eat and I had to walk so far across campus to get to my classes I got more exercise than before
Brendan Gordon (2 years ago)
the idea is that you party so much your freshman year that the huge amount of beer you drink makes you gain 15 pounds.
neldabg (2 years ago)
Ikr?! I wonder about it myself. This is the first time in my life where I haven't gained any weight. All the walking is a major help. I haven't lost anything either, but that'll probably change since I've started group fitness classed after hearing that they were free.
lordblazer (2 years ago)
am I the only dude that hit the gym everyday and weight lifted when I was in undergraduate?  fuck man we had awesome facilities. might as well take advantage and not be fat.
EricCris10sen (2 years ago)
When I lived in the middle of nowhere, our housing had a nice little gym right across from where I lived.  I planned to get into shape and work my ass off every day.  Unfortunately, everyone else used it and there wasn't a single day where people weren't piled in there playing their loud ass music.  It was so loud I could hear it when I was inside my ROOM.  Shit pissed me off that I felt discouraged from working out.  Now I live 15-20 miles from the nearest gym. I still do some exercises at work and when I'm home and when it gets warmer, I plan to go running, but fucking sucks to be where I live.

+Bodybuilder X No I say it because you are the one who think that being in shape is the be all and end all.  So you judge people for not being buff I never said anything about you being in shape just you are a douche which you did so well to prove.

I'm a 5'10 17 year old male of very slight muscularity. I'm pretty sure being 125 at this point for me isnt good.
dashielle98 (2 years ago)
+Icedragon481 Um...you do know that not everyone is the same right?  If you're 6'2" and 125 lbs your a stick.  If you're 4'10" and the same weight you could be considered overweight. depends on gender and muscle, etc too
crazy4corbinbleux (2 years ago)
For a female, I would imagine so.. it depends on your height too.
