sassi: I don't really feel bad after I eat at all. I drink coke because it has caffeine in it and I don't like tea or coffee (chocolate does too!) when I want to stay awake longer. I don't really notice if it makes me tired, cos generally it's very late at night anyway. I feel a bit gross that I ate that much, but nothing physical. As far as planning meals / buying food goes, I probably should have mentioned that I live in a fully catered college, so I get all my meals provided, and don't get a say in what is served. It's not really the meals that are an issue so much though. It's the fact that there is a vending machine outside my door, and a very cheap canteen open 6 evenings. Also the supermarket is only a 10 minute bike ride away, and open till 11pm. So at 9pm when I'm starting to get frustrated, I go downstairs and stock up on junk. Normally I don't have food in my room, cos otherwise I'll eat it. I'll have to remember the walk thing though. Not an option at night, but while it's still light (since summer is coming) that's a good idea.
I also sometimes go and have a hot shower to clear my head. Thanks!
Chief: I don't really like to have snacks in my room at college at all, cos otherwise I'll eat them all the time. But you just reminded me that the vending machine does have a packet of dried fruit and nuts, as well as the chocolates. I should try and go for that instead! Thanks!
matchbox: It sick, hey?
Ally: Thanks so much for all the ideas, but none of them are really an option for me, since I normally try not to have food around, and you need to buy all of those things in advance, and you'll have leftovers for the next day, which I don't like cos there's the temptation. When I'm home over summer though, those things could be really good.
tanya: Maybe I should grab a few apples from my college dining hall and keep them in my room? Then I could have fruit on hand like you said. Hmmm... Thanks!
HappyBella55: The water thing is a good idea. I bought a big water bottle recently, I should use it! I really don't need study food though, I need to avoid it all together (except maybe caffeine...
). Eating more at dinner is a good idea though, maybe I should plan ahead on days when I plan on staying up. Thanks!
Maybe I should try the berry V... Though I'd need a fridge...
