Virtual Learning = Real Weight Gain

Everyone's heard of the “freshman 15,” indicating that extra weight that creeps upon you once you hit college or university. Unfortunately, that extra weight gain can materialize under just about any circumstances, but it's more likely to occur if you're the kind of person who tends to stress eat. For adults returning to school to work on their business degree or diploma, the situation could be even worse. As we age, our metabolism slows down. Adding course studies on top of an already tight schedule can all but eliminate a regular exercise program.

There are some things you can do to help prevent extra weight gain during your period of study that include the following:

  • Eat small, regular meals throughout the day, to avoid overeating at any one particular time.
  • Break up your exercise routine into ten minute bursts of activity throughout the day.
  • Watch what you put into your coffee. Having a few extra coffees per day with cream and sugar can increase your caloric intake significantly.
  • Don't nibble while you work at the computer or on your assignments. If you have to eat, keep healthy fruit and vegetables nearby so that you're not tempted to munch on potato chips.
If you do happen to gain a few pounds while earning your degree or diploma, take heart in knowing that once you're studies are finished, you'll have a lot more time to get back on track with your fitness program.
