Going to Dining Hall's is super discouraging. I try to only eat until I'm hungry, as emotional eating is my main weakness that I am trying to over come. If your school has a salad bar, I would utilize that as much as possible. (Maybe even bring your own dressings to get low fat options?) I tend to eat a lot of sandwiches with tuna or grilled chicken, to get in my protein, and cut out cheeses and other fatty sauces.

I go to a community college with two different campuses. Last semester I was on the alternate campus that also housed the culinary program. The food was excellent and usually fairly healthy. This semester, I'm at the "main" campus, where a local pizza chain called Giovanni's is THE sole provider of food. The affectionate local nickname is Greasy-Vonni's, if you catch my drift.

Unfortunately as a result I've started carrying around soup cups (healthy choice) and protein bars. The pre-made salads Giovanni's offer consist of a two inch layer of cheese, bacon, ham, pepperoni, and maybe a half inch of lettuce with one tomato slice.

Good luck! Like I said, start brown-bagging it, if your cafeteria has a microwave (mine does), or just do some research on the available options.
