"The Freshman 15"

Many students heading to college this week will face a new enemy... "The Freshman 15." It's the weight gain that seems to hit so many first-year students. But health experts say the true amount of weight these new college students gain is really more like five to seven pounds. Let's face it... It's easy to pack on the pounds with unlimited cafeteria food, late-night pizza binges and snacking that comes with irregular schedules. Duke University is helping its students fight those unwanted pounds by offering an interactive nutrition workshop that includes tips for making quick, healthy meals in the dorms, and how to stay healthy in an all-you-can eat dining hall.
