When I was going to a university in Texas I pretty much had to eat all my meals at the dining hall. Trust me, I know it's brutal. Some pointers that I learned while there was to avoid foods that have been fried, and foods that you know have a lot of calories (pastas, burgers, hot dogs, pizza) also try to avoid foods that have a lot of sauce on them. I know it really sucks but try to eat more salads and fruits if they have those available. I would say to put the dressing on the side if you have that option and then just dip your fork into the dressing and then the salad. It is something that will take some getting use to but try to drink water or diet sodas with your meals instead of regular sodas because those contain more calories. Stay away from the desserts (those are just diet disasters!). I guess last but not least, try to cut down on portion size.
hope this helped

I wish I could help, but I'm fortunate enough to live off campus. Another member made a thread in the general team discussion section with the same problem.

Hi, Im new to this particular forum. I have been having trouble finding people that relate to a college student looking to lose 50 lbs by August. It seems like im the only person on my entire campus who HAS to eat at the dining hall and is trying to LOSE weight. Please somebody tell me how they do it and how they make it work?
