Warning While this video is awesome, it didn't go to medical school. Always consult your doctor for actual medical advice. Step 1: Eat smarter When it comes to your pizza intake, you're going to have to take drastic action: No pepperoni for breakfast, get veggies on at least one slice a day, and nothing -- not even breadsticks -- after 2 a.m. Step 2: Hit the books Remember the beginning of the semester, when you bought all those big, heavy textbooks? It's time to finally put them to use -- doing curls and overhead presses. Tip Forget lightweight Shakespeare plays -- go for some power lifting with Econ and O-Chem. Step 3: Plan limited meals That unlimited meal plan you have isn't really a command to eat till you vomit. Try limiting yourself to one entree per meal. Step 4: Break up Breaking up with your high-school sweetheart? That's nothing compared to ending your relationship with the dining hall's soft-serve ice cream machine. Be gentle, but firm. Tip Avoid the cafeteria entirely for a couple weeks after your split. It'll be easier for both of you. Step 5: Don't do laundry Doing laundry is, obviously, the very worst thing about college. So put it off. For as long as possible. Carrying that enormous laundry bag to your car -- to drive it home for someone else to do -- will provide an excellent workout. Step 6: Get moving Ditch the video-game console and get a job as the college mascot or streak through the quad. Whatever you do in your free time, keep that bod moving. Step 7: Dash for class Every night, set your alarm for just five minutes before class. Think of all the calories you'll burn while running in sheer panic. Did You Know? A Cornell University study found that the average college student gains nearly a third of a pound a week their first semester.
