when i was a freshman in college, just a few years ago, i made sure to stock plenty of raw almonds, cashews, etc. protein powder, oatmeal, rice, and canned meats like tuna or chicken. I would also load up as much as i could at the food courts during the day.
spidey has some good advice and i would add that liquid meals like protein powder, oatmeal, and some healthy fats in between main meals were a staple of my diet during that time.
the important thing is to enjoy your freshman year at college. it is definitely a great experience. my only advice would be to watch out for too much partying…that can definitely destroy any progress you hope to make in the gym[/quote]
this is actually my sophomore year. first year meal plan had 3 meals per day, but the most food you can get with this plan is 19 per week (and even with 3 per day, we didn’t get enough to bulk because we don’t have all you can eat or buffet style). I would cut but I’m not nearly strong/big enough to cut. also thanks for the advice about partying- luckily i just stay in my room and watch netflix lol
