Cafeteria Nightmares

Sunday, March 24, 2013

As a college student, I've pretty much had no choice but to eat in the school cafeteria. That cafeteria is the biggest roadblock in my weight loss goals. I have little to no choice in what I eat - especially on the weekends. Most of the foods, while low in calories, are crazy high in fats and carbs. Not to mention, there are so few proteins! While students have constantly asked for better foods, the answer typically involves something about the budget. So needless to say, the food isn't changing any time soon. So how am I going to conquer this nightmare of a situation? First of all, I'm going to buy me some bread and some tuna fish to take care of the atrocious weekend meals, and I'm going to keep doing what I've been doing: Reading the cards before I eat. Because let's face it, I'm a poor, broke college kid with no way to feed herself, so I have to eat in the cafeteria. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and make the best out of a bad situation!

    I also hate the caf and the little mini-mart outside my uni's library. The mart especially has all the sweety-carby foods that are so tempting when late night studying (scuffins, cookies, "homemade candy"). It sounds like you are making the best of a tough situation and are doing great!
