back when i swam in college, breakfast was like 4 or 5 strips of bacon, a couple of sausage links or patties, 4 egg whites or 2 eggs (depending on who was operating the grill), maybe some scrapple (yum!), regular coke, 2 or 3 hash browns patties or just the regular kind.
lunch was a salad, a couple of sandwiches or entrees, fries, and whatever else looked good. maybe soup.
dinner was two or three plates of food. plus salad and soup.
thank god for the unlimited meal plan.
at the time - 6'1", 135 to 140 (I'm 200-205 right now). was a long distance swimmer. but i gave up the swimming midway through my first semester right after fall break - too many good swimmers blocking me in my event, and my grades were suffering from spending 15-20 hours a week in the pool.
