>Couldn't lock down an on-campus apartment for fall/spring
>Finally got a room in the senior dorm res hall and locked it in.
>It's basically an apartment with two bedrooms/1 bathroom/ NO kitchen
>I'm a bodybuilder and I can't just eat whatever and go out all the time
>Found food service that sends prepped meals through mail order. 5 Meals a day per week = $210.. 3 Meals a day per week $125. (Good fresh and unprocessed nutritional food designed for bodybuilding)
>If I get the 5 meal then I'll be good but with the 3 meals a day.. I'll have to add in some extra. I was thinking I could buy canned tuna w/ rice cakes and just eat it plain in the morning and evenings. Or I could supplement with a powder source of real food to mix in a shaker.

If it works for you then that's great. I honestly think it's wayy too much, but that is me talking and I have a kitchen to use. If you don't have a kitchen, then it can be hard to make appropriate meals. Especially if you have to meal prep. I'm sure it's not impossible. But it's a lot of work.
If you can afford it then why not? A lot of on campus food is terrible for you and way more expensive. When you break it down, that is $6 per meal (5x7=35, 210/35=6). That's still just under what you would probably spend on take out food per meal.
If you don't think it's going to be enough though, and you will need to supplement. Definitely get some food that you can easily keep in your dorm room. Canned tuna is great, and is often on sale. Rice cakes, again affordable and on sale.
The thing is, if you are a bodybuilder then you do need a lot of food. I don't think people are necessarily thinking on those terms, they are thinking about the average person. When you are a bodybuilder you need more food.0

I used to spend $90 on food per week and think it was too much. Go to the supermarket, learn to cook, You can buy a fucking lobster for the price of one of those meals. Get yourself a ton of lean meat, freeze it and for $50 you can have vegetables, meat and whatever else you want to have with that for the week and some of that will probably run into next week0
