How Much Weight Do College Freshman Gain?

It’s a fact, college freshman will gain weight, so just how much weight?  Maybe you’ve heard of the ‘freshman 15′.

With a diet of beer, pizza and roman noodles, it’s no wonder college freshman gain weight.  However, the ‘freshman 15′ is a myth.  First-year college students don’t usually gain a significant amount of weight, and those who do only gain about five pounds on average.

Research found that even though you might not pack on pounds during your freshman year, it’s likely you will gain some weight during your four years at college.  In a study that compared students’ weight and measurements at the beginning of freshman year and the end of senior year, 70% had gotten heavier.

Women were more likely to gain weight and inches than men.
