    So I'm not really looking to go out and spend money on food, one I don't cook, two money is tight.

    Pretty much I have access to a 7-11 of sorts, with various snacks(gold fish, muffins, granola) fruits, yogurt, pastries.

    A grille with burgers, fries, pizza, and chicken.

    There is also diner with Mongolian Grille(noodles, veggies and meat with sauces), random entrees usually meat and vegetable, burritos, and sandwiches, and salads.

    Question is how do I eat well off this stuff, especially breakfast, starting the 12Week Foundation program so I need to be eating well too.

    Sounds to me like you're fucked. Well, if you're wanting to get ripped, that is.

    Otherwise, just do the best with what you have.

    Oh, and those 5-hr energy (extra strength) are fucking awesome before the gym...especially if you're going after work/classes.

    I see some good things on there, noodles, chicken, fruits, yogurt. You'll need enough of it to sustain you though.

    Whats your height and weight? Judging from your pic you need about 2500-3200cal/day to sustain and gain weight with a strength program like the one you mentioned

    Doesnt your college provide healthy meals in any of the dorm cafes? I went to WVU and they provide something called Healthy U food. Its pretty much food with alot of protein such as salmon salad or wheat ravioli. They always had the healthy u food separated from everything else. Its unfortunate that not alot of people took advantage of it. When I see everyone's plates, its filled with nasty greasy food. Our school does so much to promote the healthy U meals but no one seems to care (although it is West Virginia and it happens to be the fattest state lol).

    There is variety, but not really dedicated healthy menus, that's not to say there aren't healthy foods though.
