I live in the Alpha Chi Omega sorority house will 25 other girls. Although this may seem like a mess to some, I really enjoy it. But once you live with 25 other girls, you start to learn a lot more about them. This not only brought me closer to a lot of my sisters, but it also showed me how healthy I eat in college, especially compared to others.
I asked a few of my friends to write down what they eat in a typical day and here are my results. I am not going to share any names, but it was very interesting to find out the large variety as you will soon see in eating habits.
Girl #1: 130 lbs.
A salad and a diet Pepsi everyday. Sometimes pizza or fast food on top of her salad. Candy is eaten daily.
Girl #2: 145 lbs.
Starbucks once or twice a day. Salad, pizza, brownie, cookie, Starbucks, tea, nachos, apple, chips, noodles, beef, salad, and other snacks (this was all consumed in ONE day)
Girl #3: 170 lbs.
Pasta, chicken, cereal, milk, juice, sandwich, chips, garlic bread, ice cream
Girl #4: 112 lbs.
Salad or subway, diet coke, candy, sandwich, pickle, rice cake
And then there is me!! I usually eat a breakfast bar in the morning with a apple or orange and water. For lunch I have usually a sandwich with fruit and veggies and if I am treating myself, I will have pretzels or a small dessert. For dinner, I usually make either pasta (because it cheap) or grilled chicken with rice and veggies. I usually never eat dessert because I eat dinner late enough as it is with my busy schedule. For snacks which I usually don’t have time to even eat, I have fruit, dried fruit, candy, or pita and hummus.
