The Freshman 15

On my trip we stayed in the UCLA dormitories (one called Sunset Village) and ate in one of the Commons.  The choice and quality of food was amazing.  I know this is UCLA, but I have a feeling this is not atypical of food choices for college students.  No wonder they gain weight in the first year!  I had to skip dinner to even myself out, calorie wise.  One morning I had an omelet, oatmeal, juice, coffee, and muffins.  Who does that?  Normally I have coffee and toast or a bowl of cereal.

The South is known for obesity,  and that is legitimate, but I saw plenty of heavy people, especially young people, out there too.
