Wanting to shape up? Then you’re going to have to start staying in.

By Sj.Cliff
Wanting to shape up? Then you’re going to have to start staying in.

The only thing better than a night out at the union is the takeaway on the way home – but have you ever thought about what those pints, chips and fry-ups are doing to your waistline.

Just one night out a week can add on around 2 pounds. While it doesn’t sound like a lot, over time 2 lbs a week can mount up.

Even if you live on rabbit food the rest of the time, hitting the town once-a-week could add up to an extra 2 stone over a year.

One pound in weight is roughly 3,500 calories. The average night-out, take away and hangover fry-up amounts to roughly 6,500 calories… on top of everything you’ve eaten that day.


- you cheeky lot! Delicious but deadly :[


Dr Jacquie Lavin of Slimming World said we’re more likely to make unhealthy choices because alcohol stimulates appetite and lowers inhibitions.

So think about your waistline before you hit the uni bars!
