College students are constantly stressed. Between ominous tests, looming deadlines and the nagging desire to be involved everywhere to make your resume glow, it’s easy to crack under the pressure and search for some kind of comfort.
How far would people go to prevent the notorious “Freshman Fifteen?” What if it allowed them to enjoy the social scene of parties and alcohol without worrying about the after effects of the calories in alcoholic beverages?
It is the horror we have all heard about, and the threat that hangs over the heads of all incoming college students: the ‘Freshman Fifteen.’ A myth that is as old as college itself, it claims that every student’s first year at school will be greeted with a large gain in weight. But fear not, because despite what you have heard, the freshman fifteen is completely fictitious.
