Student diets


As colleges and universities open their doors to begin the fall term, students will likely experience stress, a decrease in physical activity and changes in diet – factors that contribute to the “Freshman 15.” Nutrition experts at UC Irvine can offer students strategies to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Changing Poor Eating Habits Caused by Stress
Linda Gigliotti, director the UC Irvine Weight Management Program, is a registered dietitian with a master’s degree in nutrition education. Her expertise is in weight management and lifestyle modification, working with clients to make choices to manage their health. Gigliotti holds annual meetings with medical students at UC Irvine to discuss issues of nutrition and health. She knows that students stressed by classwork often acquire poor habits (and extra pounds) by eating cheap, available, fast food. She teaches students how to avoid that trap and develop a healthier diet. Contact Linda Gigliotti at 949-824-8770 or lmgiglio@uci.edu.


Finding Healthy Foods in Dorms; Overcoming Disordered Eating Patterns
Emily Bell, manager of nutrition programs at the UC Irvine Health Education Center, conducts workshops and interactive programs for students on healthy eating in the dining halls, cooking on a budget and following USDA MyPyramid guidelines. Bell also offers one-on-one appointments, and works with students with disordered eating patterns. Contact Emily Bell at 949-824-3894 or ekbell@uci.edu.
