By Lindsay DeRosa Recreational Activities in Atlanta By Jordan Bauman How to Avoid the  Freshman Fifteen By Catelyn Kinsell F or the past eighteen years, your parents have had primary control over what and  when you eat.  Now in school and away from home, an abundance of new and  potentially delicious foods await you in buffet form.  And how could you forget the  plethora of fast food restaurants, delivering into the wee hours of the morning?  Needless to say, there are a lot of culinary decisions that you will be making now that  you are on your own.  While it is important to enjoy your new found freedoms, there  are a few tips that you should keep in mind to maintain your overall health. First of all, remember that when there is a seemingly endless amount of food  available, it is easy to eat until you are “over” full.  And also, just because you can eat  dessert with every meal doesn’t mean that you should! Portion control is key… try  your hardest to keep from going back for seconds and pay close attention to the  caloric values posted on items in Brittain and  Woody’s.  The average person should consume  between 2000-2200 calories a day (depending on  activity levels). Another important thing to avoid is LATE NIGHT  JUNK FOOD.  Of course it is incredibly tempting,  but anything you consume within 2-3 hours of going  to sleep is stored as fat.  If you need to be up late at  night, be sure to eat healthy snacks such as fruits  MyPyramid.gov  offers personalized eating  plans, interactive tools to help  you plan and assess your food choices, and advice

and veggies, yogurt, and proteins, which will also fuel your brain and body much more  effectively. On the other end of the spectrum, it is important to remember to eat enough and at  fairly consistent intervals.  If you wait until you are starving to eat, you tend to overeat  and your blood glucose levels will experience extreme ups and downs.  Eating  breakfast is another crucial element to maintaining healthy body functions.  Studies
