I feel your pain too! I am currently a sophomore at Purdue. It’s just so hard to eat in a healthy manner when you’re still living in the dorms and have a meal plan. There are healthy options, but it’s just so hard to resist the other options when everyone around you is indulging.

I’m also in my second year at college. I’m attending the University of Minnesota. Last year, living in the dorms, I was required to have a meal plan. Fortunately for me, there are a ton of healthy options including an extensive salad and sandwich bar in the dining hall closest to my building. The U is really good about providing students with resources to lead healthy and active lives while at school. This year I’m living in an apartment so I didn’t sign up for a meal plan. I buy what’s healthy and eat, proper portions and take advantage of my building’s fitness center.

I’m a senior at the University of Minnesota. The U of M is a large school so there are a ton of options, both healthy and unhealthy. For me, it’s everything in moderation. I keep the mentality of “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.” Just because I can get Chick-Fill-A, Chipotle or Panda Express everyday doesn’t mean I should. I have breakfast in my room, pack a lunch and bring it with me, and eat dinner in the dining halls.

Take advantage of the REC center and the areas surrounding campus, too. Exercise reduces stress, helps you concentrate, as well as improves your physical condition.

That freshman 15 can be a doozey, but no one talks about the sophomore 16 or the junior dozen! try the best you can with your food choices and add some activity at least 3x per day: http://www.squidoo.com/what-are-the-best-mens-w… — these are easy to do from home or a dorm room!

i also wanted to mention camping, it sounds like you guys are both in a good place for it, and it can be a good source of long range exercise while eating super healthy: nuts, dried fruit, grains, lean protein, etc.
