Freedom, stress and diet weigh down college freshmen

Barbara Karkabi in Houston Chronicle reports:

Tips for soon-to-be college freshman:

  • Keep a daily food journal.
  • Eat meals — especially breakfast — at regular times. That lessens the chance of “grazing” that contributes to weight gain.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Exercise. Take a bike to school even if it’s just for pleasure. Join a club sport or a dance group. Use the stairs. Exercise helps reduce stress levels and can energize your brain, so take a 20-minute exercise break while studying for exams.
  • Take a daily multivitamin with calcium and iron.
