The “Freshman 15” is one of the things incoming students hear about the most. Legend has it that the average student gains fifteen pounds during their first year in college. Urban myth or not, keep these tips in mind to ensure you eat and stay healthy as you adjust to eating on campus. Here are a couple of things to try or consider: Try intermittent fasting: This strategy of eating only within a limited window and eating nothing else at other times Educate yourself: Take a class on basic nutrition principles. Seriously, it’s not like being forced to learn obscure Learn to.

“Food becomes a way to exert control for many Freshmen when they feel little control in many areas of their lives,” Molly Kimball, a registered dietitian and sports nutritionist at the Ochsner. Explain your family rules, such as leaving a party where drug use occurs and not riding in a car with a driver who’s been using drugs. If your teen breaks the rules, consistently enforce consequences. Know your teen’s friends.

If your teen’s friends use drugs, your teen might feel pressure to experiment, too. Avoiding a lecture or fear of punishment is the most basic reason. If your teenager knows they have done something wrong and they want to avoid the consequences, one easy option is to lie.

At times this will be calculated and elaborate, other times it will be instinctual and they’ll make. Preteens and teens can lie to try to avoid getting in trouble, defend a friend they like, or lie because they are too upset to talk about painful experiences, like rejection from peers. One child. Avoid infantilizing your teen.

Teens have an allergic reaction to being babied. She wants to feel you respect the fact that she is no longer your little baby and that she can take care of herself.

  • Great video man. Just got a new sub here! Freshman 15 is somethin to be very way about lol no one wants to get that but it happens WAY too often �� I enjoyed the video and am excited to see your new material!

  • You are great!! You should do “big sister” style videos about life advice if you feel comfortable with itkinda like your breakup vids!

  • Thanks a bunch for the microwave pasta tip! I brought pasta with me to residence, but realized that I don’t have a pot, so I’ll definitely be using your method!

  • The lowest possible calories you can get in an alcohol beverage is a vodka soda. You’re welcome. Normally under 100 cal. Where as wine is like 300

  • Please make the focusing/staying on your shit video because I start my freshmen year of college in the Fall & I need to start off on a good foot!!!

  • Freshman year was the worst year if my life, man. My depression was crippling and I was so stressed that I actually lost close to15 lbs

  • Oh, I wish I should’ve watched this before. I was a college freshman last year and I gained 16 pounds lol I was underweight before though.
    I already lost 5, but I still need to loose 3 pounds.

  • While I would discourage counting calories, you can trade of snacks and exercising.
    So if you honestly feel you have been active, you’ve like earned the right to snack a little.
    If you can guess you already ate more snacks than you burned extra calories exercizing, and in the past month or so gained weight or lost less than your goal, skip the snacks this month. Or just skip all snacking on odd numbered months. Don’t focus on weigth itself, but on the trend. If you doing fine be happy, if not, let it inspire you to make an effort over a long time, there no rush and yoyo-ing is bad for you.

    Also, a weird tip, if you snack, enjoy it. Don’t feel guilty or stressed and especially don’t absentmindedly eat anything.
    This may help to limit it, that second cookie will not be worth it. A glass of alcohol is like a spoon of mayo, so nurse a drink and don’t chug it. If you’re weird like me, try cola light with just a splash of red wine.

    The important part is not to obsess over it, and think about food as little as possible. Don’t get an eating disorder!

    And indeed the best tips are in this video: a good breakfast, kinda fixed three meals a day, no late eating and lots of water and vegetables. Instead of skipping meals, try smaller portions, half full is full enough. ��

  • I’m so confused. I’m only in eigth grade and I have to push to get my mom to buy me healthy food. How on earth do freshmen have no experience with buying and eating the right food?

  • Are you aware that there is a channel named Takia House posting your videos as well as others to there channel pretending to be you?? Just thought you should know!!!!!!

  • you sounds nuts talking about straining hot pasta water with your hands.. i don’t know, but this does not sound realistic for someone like me.

  • Hey Tori! I know you eat meat again, but I was just wondering if you ever see yourself eating dairy again? Love your videos and you give the best tips! ily

  • Wow, you have so much on your plate! We have a great video called Time Management Solutions and also have a video on Stress Management that might help you better deal with your appetite.

  • I really want to start eating healthy! I bought some stuff that you’ve suggested and it’s life changing! I love your fitness vlogs! ❤️❤️

  • No she is not in college anymore. Yes her points are still valid. If you don’t like her content just move along guys! Remember that youtubers are people too, and comments can hurt her too. She is a nice healthy girl with good intentions!

  • Also, this bullshit about meal timing is a lie. The “study” is self reporting. This entire thing is bullshit and should be taken with a grain of salt. Metabolism does not fucking slow down when you’re tired. It slows down when it is starved of calories and with age.

  • I gained about 6 kg (13lbs) after moving away from family. However I’m glad I did as I was only 36kg (79lbs) and needed the extra weight.

  • Most people gain the freshman 15 not only because of food, but also because of alcohol!!! so ladies and gents u can drink all u want but make sure u work out the day after (working out hungover sucks but u gotta do what u gotta do)

  • I basically had the same routine my freshman year. I had the unrefrigerated almond milk stacked in my room to last weeks lmao. Also my mom sent me a lot of stuff that was dorm-friendly so I didn’t have to go to the grocery store constantly. Kroger was like a mile away and it was AWFUL when it was cold and I didn’t have a car. I don’t know how I lived back then

  • I’m not really sure if I’m just weird or something, but I have lost weight when I’m stressed (I am a High School senior). Like when I have a project for an AP class due or I’m worrying about a test or college or a track meet, I stop eating. I’m not too sure if this happens to everyone, I guess my body is just weird.
