    I would have though losing weight was an issue for some, coming from their mum making them food everyday and then just being lazy and not eating well as well as budgeting.

    High metabolism for me, so I can really only lose weight, anything I do put on disappears into an alternate universe somehow.

    Lost a stone in first year because of glandular fever, then gained it again over summer and year 2 (in muscle mainly thankfully). Then I had an absolutely awful summer, was pretty much doing a lot less exercise, eating a lot worse and being lazy so I gained another stone. Back to the weights now...

    not necessarily, i know a couple of people who may have put on a couple of pounds, but in general everyone i know has stayed pretty much the same. you do drink more alcohol i suppose and order more take-aways, just student life haha, but if you want to watch your weight it's not difficult, especially if you're self-catered!

    I'm self-catered and i've actually lost 2-3 dress sizes since i went to uni haha. in the first year i was just cooking for myself and experimenting with cooking since i quite enjoy it, and managed to lose it by not even trying! also was doing a lot more walking as our campus is 320 acres haha. this year i made an extra effort in the new year to lose weight, and lost another stone.

    so it's not a myth if you order take-aways all the time, and sometimes in catered halls if the food isnt great people sometimes put on a bit, but you're not going to put on weight haha, it's easy enough a situation to avoid
