Abstract

Weight gain and lifestyle behaviours during the university may cause overweight and obesity of the adults. The main purpose of this paper is to analyze the freshman and sophomore years of total 760 college students’ (53 % women, 47 % men) movement and dietary patterns, and its influence on college students’ physical and mental health. The study mainly involves measuring students’ weight and height, and using the form of questionnaire survey as the measurement of their recent sports and diet mode. According to the results of the survey, 29 % of freshman students do not participate in sports, and 70 % of the people eat fruit and vegetables every day of less than 5; more than 50 % of people in at least three times a week before eat fried or high fat fast food. But by the end of the sophomore year, 70 % of 290 reopened the weight assessment, which shows the weight gain (4.1 +/− 3.6 kg, P < 0.001), but this has no clear link with physical exercise and dietary pattern. We need to make further analysis contribution of fat, muscle, and bone to weight gain, and determine the influence of physical exercise and dietary pattern on college students’ physical weight.
