I went to a school that had a similar meal plan structure to what it sounds like you are struggling with. If you are still having problems, I would suggest these little tips:
1. ALWAYS use up the maximum allowed expense for each meal.
2. Do this by getting prepackaged (or easily packaged if you have a cafeteria style thing) items that you can take back to your dorm for snacking later.
3. Purchase some small sizes of tupperware to place items from the dining hall into for later enjoyment.
4. Keep in mind some of the minor alterations that you can make to normally unhealthy foods. If the meal offered on a particular day is burgers, don't deprive yourself and only get salad. Go ahead and get a burger just without the bun (or use lettuce leaves as your "bun"). Sure chicken cooked in skin isn't as healthy as skinless even if you pick it off, but removing the skin yourself is better than resigning yourself to your fate.
Remember whatever happens that it isn't about perfection at every meal. It's about a lot of small positive steps that will add up over time. Best of luck!
