Plenty of people agree that college was the best period of their lives. While it doesn't really speak well for the majority of their time on this earth, one can certainly say that college is a great experience. Everything changes; it is the period of time where a child learns how to be an adult.

Life can get a little overwhelming when you first start college, and some people can't help but put on a little bit of weight. It's called the freshman 15. You may have heard about it, and it probably worries you.

Don't have a conniption. Just eating right and exercising can ward off the pounds.

It's important that new college students take note of this. It is extremely easy to get lost in the hectic lifestyle of a new college kid; you have to be careful not to let your health suffer.

Make sure you make time in your schedule to exercise. Many people stop exercising because they claim they just cannot find the opportunity to do so. Set a regular time every day, shift some things around if you have to, but never forget to exercise. And don't put off exercise because some friends want to go out for burgers.

Don't take the bus if you don't have to. Walking more and tracking the distance that you walk are great ways to keep your fitness up. And when you eat, avoid fatty foods with a lot of grease. In fact, try to avoid fast food altogether.

Eating a lot of small meals throughout the day is much better for you than eating two huge meals. College cafeterias tend to only serve food twice a day, and since cafeteria food is usually free it can be tempting to fall into this pattern. Just spend the extra money and eat more often in smaller portions; call it an investment.

For more tips, visit a health food store or look up things online. It's not hard to be healthy. You just have to be driven and dedicated.
