True dat, although it's not something that ever seemed weird to me (unless you were being facetious) merely logical. Most people get proper chunky because of all the shit they eat and drink. That's not to say everyone does, some people lose a bit, quite often it seems to be the people that gain an increased drug habit at uni although again it's not a clear cut difference. I think I put a couple of pounds on in first year but it's all good because since June I've gone down from 11 stone 6 to 8 stone 13. I was afraid I'd go all weedy and stick-looking but fortunately that doesn't seem to be a look I'm built for so instead I just look like a trimmer sexier version of the bloke I was before.
Most important thing is probably just to make sure you don't become one of those wankers that uses "being a student" as an excuse to have a fucking shit diet. The latter is not an inherent part of the former.
