freshman 15


The freshman fifteen... oh, how well I remember! When I was at the  
University of Maine I talked the head of the food services department into  
starting, on a trial basis, a 1200 and 1500 calorie food plan; one line in  
one cafeteria on campus was devoted to serving a well-balanced menu, with a  
food plan worked out for the week and printed up on a sheet so you could  
take it with you and know what to eat. It was very popular, and soon the  
sheets (and the balanced 1200 or 1500 calorie eating plan options) were  
available throughout campus. That was many many years ago, and I don't know  
if they still even do it, but I remember the woman in charge was very nice  
and accommodating and really liked the idea. The moral of the story: there  
may be something similar available at Tulane. If not, be prepared to go to  
the food services department and ask to speak to the person in charge of  
planning out the menus -- maybe he or she would be willing to help you plan  
out the right selections from the cafeteria selections! And, of course,  
remember to exercise as much as you can -- it helps a lot with the stress as  
well as the weight!

Good luck!
