    I got my ass in gear this past summer/fall, running, pushups, situps, cutting out junk food, less fatty foods, etc.

    Then this Jan I went away to school, stress, greasy school food, etc. Ugh.

    I find it really hard to eat healthy, especially at the dining hall here at school. Does anybody have any tips for me to eating healtheir while away at college, espcially while eating at the dining halls?

    There i always healthy things to eat at the dining hall. And if you're working out, It really doesn't matter what you eat as long as you're getting your fats, carbs, and protein.

    Do you get a microwave in your dorm?

    Get oatmeal and protein shakes.

    I brought a microwave and fridge to my dorm when I lived there, even though the micro was against rules.

    you're mistaking "difficult to eat healthy" with "tempted to eat shitty"

    between fruit, veggies, chicken, salad bar, most dining halls have a lot of options for healthy eating. When your friends are eating mac'n'cheese, chicken tenders, waffles, burgers and ice cream just think about how much more pussy you'll get when they're fat and you're shredded. Then choke down a salad with some chicken breast and a banana and hit the gym.

    doesnt your school have a sub type place? Whole wheat bread with turkey/chicken whatever with veggies and a little olive oil (no mayo) is pretty healthy.

    buy some canned tuna/salmon/chicken for eating dinner in your dorm too. Or pickup a foreman grill and grill meat whenever you please. Not that hard. Just a little more effort, but its worth it.
