Listen I don't write many reviews. Or fan letters. In fact I'm even pretty picky with the complements I give out... but THIS book - The Freshman 15 Survival Guide - is a great and important read for just about everyone.

Why?

Because ANYONE will benefit form these simple but effective changes. What I loved about this book is that it's concise - versus all the other diet, fitness, health ad nauseam books out there and take 300 plus pages to make one single point. I appreciate that it didn't waste my time. I was able to read this in one sitting. Boom. Done. Got it. I felt like Keanu Reeves in The Matrix, when after 30 seconds he proclaims, "I know Kung-Fu." Well now, with "The Freshman 15 Survival Guide," I DO know Kung-Fu when it comes to smart healthy eating in pressure cooker situations... like college.

And that's a major point of this book --

It's not just for college freshmen - it's for EVERYONE who wants to eat right and stay healthy but has a hectic lifestyle. This is a mandatory read for anyone who is on the go with too little time for "the luxuries" like preparing complete meals, eating properly, or a fitness training regime.

Here's the deal - I've read a bazillion diet and health books and guess what? They all work... just not for me.

They ALL work (at some level at least) IF YOU HAVE THE TIME to deal with the shopping, and the food prep, and the storage, and the meal times and the etc. etc etc. etc. Every single one is a major time suck of food prep and lifestyle change that I could never add to my life. That's why this Freshman 15 Survival book is such genus. It's not asking me to change my life! It's not saying, "just grit your teeth, and tough it out, and someday this will get easier.

It's heartbreaking when children grow up self conscious, as a result of weight gain, when the responsible adults in their lives are not equipped to help them combat the ills of living in a society that "eats to live". Those children are at a disadvantage from the start, but many, (whether from households that established healthy eating habits or otherwise), go away to college and gain the dreaded 15. I know I did! I also just witnessed the same when my son's friend returned home from college the other day. She was almost unrecognizable. She appeared to want to be ignored because of her new and different physical appearance. My daughter and I both thought to ourselves, "She could have used 'The Freshman 15 Survival Guide'." This book should be a tool in this nation's arsenal to get us back on track, starting in our colleges where young minds need "fuel" as much as they need "fire" from their academic studies. The tips and recipes within provide ammunition for healthy lifestyle maintenance and equip students to achieve their best during such a critical period of adjustment and adventure. We, the ones who are always searching for ways to help our children achieve balance and health, should start a campaign to get this book in the hands of every college freshman in the nation. Why not send them in care packages, like we do for our troops? The effect would be phenomenal!

A useful book for a freshman, who, the book says, soon gains 15 pounds in weight. The book tells you how to avoid that.
In a way the book is useful to the non freshman too because it gives very helpful information on how to make good food choices. It even advises on what is the best alcoholic beverage to drink, if you must drink.
Regarding water, the book gives it a big boost. It tells you when to drink and how much for different times of the day.
The book gives helpful hints about exercise and even makes suggestions about establishing good sleep habits.
It has a resource section which every freshman should find very helpful.

This is a great guide for college students to have! I remember back in college when your life schedule is entirely new. It's so easy to fall into bad habits without realizing what's happening to your body before it too late! This book gives you some great tips on what to be looking out for to keep your energy levels up, eat smart and keep fit. Good strategies on what to eat, sleep cycles, exercise tips, drinking and more. I like how you get healthy tips in the first section, plus a recipe book for some tasty dishes which are easy to make. This book is a great gift to give anyone you know in college for a happy, healthy, slim lifestyle!

If you're headed off to your first year of college (or the second, third or fourth for that matter) make sure you have this little gem of a book downloaded on your Kindle or iPad before you leave. Filled with great tips and recipes that will help you control your weight and be healthier as you start your new college lifestyle away from your parent's home cooking, the author clearly understands college students and the challenges they face as they pursue higher education. As a father of a daughter in college who is concerned about staying healthy, I picked up this book to see if it might be something that would interest her. After reading it I immediately gifted her a copy.
