    Dude, you are in college, with an unlimited meal plan. Get huge. Just pick and choose the healthier options and eat your heart out. That's what I did in college. Went from 145 to 175 in two years. You have what most bodybuilders dream of...unlimited access to food.

    Yea I'm a freshman as well man (and luckily got the best dining hall on campus with the largest meal plan). Grilled chicken is delicious, endless veggies, milk (although its from a machine, I was hoping to cope a whole bunch of it), eggs, steak. MMMM. Getting big isn't the problem, it will be cutting.

    you will find how rough it gets getting good nutrition later in the year when after three o clock nothing on campus but the pizza and fried food place is still open or maybe the gas station during that late night studying/ partying what ever it be...get a foreman grill and stock up on some food you will be glad.. dining halls close semi early which i doubt is when u will be going to sleep.. george foremans are live savers at the dorms..

    Nalgene and a backpack. Got liters of it this way last year. Sometimes I would nick a few cartons of the lactose free milk that they had on the side too.

    To the OP, it's quite easy to eat healthy if the options are there. Just follow the golden rules; lots of veggies, lean meats & fish. And get tupperware/bags, unless it's an unlimited mealplan. Watch out for stirfries and pre-made meals, they're crazy high in oil!

    Nailed it right there... dining halls are for the most part a great thing, but it may be a challenge to eat healthy. Passing up the pizza line in favor of the grilled chicken at the back may take some will. If you start off right, it will become clockwork. Have fun and enjoy yourself, you're in college, but be honest with yourself when your choosing which foods to go with. Try to make no compromises (eating a chicken salad to compensate a pizza... lol, it happens all the time)
    Your golden rules almost line up exactly with mine Steveo!

    I moved off campus and ditched the meal plan, I just make my own food. After a few weeks of eating on campus my freshman year i kinda got sick of it anyways, the food wasn't bad but it was the same stuff every week. Plus ever since I started making my own food I dont have to sh!t 15 minutes after everytime I eat so thats kinda nice too.

    Nutrition in college is easier than out of college. Everything is premade and there is a lot to choose from.

    I have to disagree with that...at my college the food is awful! There are a lot of carb filled meals, but rarely anything with protein in it. I always have to resort to beef patties and milk...gets very old!

    it seems easier for me to eat clean when i live off campus and can shop specific and precook.. rather then relying on what the dining hall has.. i ate lots of double burgers to bulk when i was a freshman
