Gaining weight in college is inevitable. Not just the infamous “freshman 15,” but the less talked about sophomore, junior and senior 15. For a majority of college students, gaining weight is ridiculously easy. Losing it however…not so easy.
1. Dining Halls: Hey, I’m paying $60,000 a year for this food. I deserve this pizza. And this pasta. And this cheeseburger. And yes, I do want a side of fries.
2. Dessert Spreads at the D-hall: Five options? I must try them all… just to make sure they aren’t poisoned.
3. Finals: The only way I can study an entire semester’s worth of material is if I reward myself with Sour Patch Kids. After every sentence I read.
4. Writing Papers: My brain only works after I’ve eaten at least 600 calories worth of chocolate.
5. Brunch: Nutella stuffed french toast? or Eggs Benedict? Obviously both.
6. Mini Fridges: My fridge is mini; therefore, I must eat everything in it ASAP to make room for my roommate’s food. Not to mention, it is right next to my desk. Talk about convenient.
7. Stress: Hellllo Ben and Jerry’s.
8. Parties: Beer is nothing without nachos smothered in cheese.
9. Insomnia: Cookies. Delivered. Until 2 am.
10. Relationships: The best excuse for pigging out (not that I need one).
And the real reason why dieting in college is impossible?
Two words: Cookie Butter.
