(HealthDay News) -- It's common for college freshmen to gain a few extra pounds during those first few months away from home.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says new college students should be aware of these risk factors for weight gain:
Getting insufficient exercise.
Having more unhealthy food choices.
Snacking more frequently.
Taking in more calories, including from drinks that are high in fat and sugar.
