My school forces all the residential students to buy a meal plan, which costs a ton of money. After spending that much on food, I feel really silly not taking advantage of it and eating at least most of my meals in the school dining hall, but I'm worried about not being able to track the calories and nutrition info in the food there. I'm pretty sure my school doesn't have nutrition info listed anywhere, but I am definitely going to look into it.
I can try to estimate, but some things can be way off just because of how they are cooked, what sauces are on them, and whether the sauce is low fat/light. I think I'm going to mostly focus on making healthy choices, and trying to fill up on veggies before I eat anything else at a meal. I'm also going to keep lots of low calorie, healthy snacks around my dorm, like light string cheese, smoothies, veggies+fat free dip, etc. But I'm worried about under or over estimating my calories because of the cafeteria!
Does anyone else deal with this? Any suggestions? I work out a lot and really enjoy it, so it's just as important to me to make sure I'm eating enough as it is to not over eat.
