I've heard very different stories with this, some people gain a few stone, some lose some.

So, did you lose or gain weight and university and why do you think you did so?

I lost weight, but that was because I became vegan... so I think I'm an anomaly xx

Lost weight in first year as was a bit sickly, but then gained it in the last couple of years (so everything evened out).

Lost weight: Forgot to eat, couldn't be bothered to cook, survived on toast and apples (and alcohol)

Fat fresher syndrome = fast food and beer. My weight was relatively stable but I enjoy cooking and hate fast food and I don't drink beer / lager.

Lost weight - probably down to taking up more running whilst at university.

Gained.

I went from having no control over my diet at all to controlling all of it.

I ate Oreos and chicken nuggets and chocolate... and drank like a fish.

Total rollercoaster. I had mono in the first half of my first year, so I lost about a stone in total just from that. Then I gained a few next semester. During second year, I lost a few kgs, then during exam period this year I gained another 2 kgs.

Gained a couple of stone. Not entirely sure why, possibly just a bit more growing up.

gained. mainly because i was in catered halls, so it was like an all you could eat buffet of not the healthiest food. however all came off straight away when i came home for summer. just lay off the fast food after the nights out & stick to low cal alcohol drinks, you should be okay.

Most people gain because their diets either remain the same or become worse as their exercise decreases (no more PE)

I lost it because when left to my own devices I don't eat much. I'm too lazy to cook anything substantial. My appetite tends to plummet when I'm stressed as well, so that affected things, and because I moved to London I walked around a lot more.

I gained weight due to increased alcohol intake. Like I barely drank before I went and then I went and drank 4/5 nights usually. And then we ate lots of fast food as well. Haha.
