Realities of the Freshman 15

It is called the freshman 15 and as the school year approaches and girls are considering going to college, it is a very realistic prospect. There are several things happening here. First, for many kids it is a time to be away from home, to eat on your own. Secondly, there’s usually a food card of some sort, a voucher which allows you to eat unlimited food. Finally, institutional food with gravy often is a cheaper type of food to provide than healthy foods. The combination can be deadly and includes a lot of weight gain, including that freshman 15.

We always appreciate your comments.
