OP - do you know if you'll have any cooking facilities in your dorms? Lots of the catered dorms I know of have k-words so you might still be able to cook tasty low carb treats

Beef Jerky, is great! But the store bought kind is full of msg preservatives. lol Do you know anybody with a dehydrator, or you could even make your own with an oven.

May come across as "hey i'm new but im super educated and I concur with tim" but .... "hey i'm new but I concur with tim"

:)

Mainly its the throwing tinned tuna or chicken breast in pre-packed dark green salad and oil - it was this mix I found most palletable and most sound in nutrition - easy to boot. It would be great if you could get boiled eggs from the canteen though(?) - thyme/rosemary/basil helps - to me its about finding a lunch meal you don't need to plan for and tastes good. Variety is nice/probably better but its the first thing I let slide when I don't want my diet becoming a 2nd job

Breakfast - eggs/bacon/sausage in moderation (I say that, again anecdotal but I think sausage is a bit of a nutrition lottery since its not exactly a good example of a whole food - hense I wouldn't have 15 a week) - I also often added grated cheddar, helped me with the constant eggs.

Snacks - cheese portions - I have small cheddar portions I eat through the day - 2 minimum 4 max, hand full of nuts. Whey protein with water. 2-3 fruit - especially if you arent getting veg with dinner - I think kiwi fruit is a good example of fibre/vit c/low GI so if you like those and aren't getting much veg add an extra.

Lunch - the above/salad with meat/oil - I also had a few where I got Feta cheese from super market, nice stuff just didnt want it everyday.

Dinner - I was too spoiled here by moms cooking and wont tease you with the details - I'll just wish you luck here, at least it can be more varied! - ommelletes are good but *shrug* the no cooking thing has left me wondering if its only some of the day you can't cook.
