Beware the Weighty Curse of Campus Life!

Congratulations—you’ve just started college, and it’s an exciting time. New friends, no curfew—and the freedom to eat what you want, when you want it. But watch out! These newfound freedoms can lead to the notorious weight gain known as the “freshman fifteen”—the all-too-common rite of passage that adds up to an average weight gain of fifteen pounds for your first semester. You do the math: That’s almost a pound a week! Chances are, if you’re not aware of the temptations of campus life (late-night pizza, all-you-can-eat choices in the cafeteria—not to mention weekend parties and exam stress), then you’ll come home for Thanksgiving wondering how you ever fit into your senior prom dress.

But as they say, “Knowledge is power,” and Fighting the Freshman Fifteen should be your first required reading. Written by a leading dietitian, along with two college-age women who have battled the “fifteen” themselves, this easy-to-ace guide will arm you with the information you need to make intelligent nutritional and lifestyle choices, including:

• Tips on using the cafeteria wisely • Getting real about portion sizes and calorie intake • Handling midnight study sessions (and other excuses for ordering pepperoni pizza) • Managing PMS, stress, and emotional reasons for bingeing • The lowdown on “liquid calories” and other dieting dangers • Finding the time for fitness • Fifty easy, no-mess recipes that can be prepared in any dorm room

Complete with handy checklists and charts that will help you stay on track, this is an essential course that every college woman should take. The objective? It will help you look terrific, while giving you more energy to keep you at the top of your game.
