The 14 Most Disgusting Eating Habits You Developed In College

Remember that time you ate a microwavable burrito every night at 5 p.m. like clockwork? And then you ate a second dinner at 8 p.m.? How about subsisting on instant ramen every day for four years? That was college. It was a both a beautiful and a very ugly period in time.

The food habits we picked up in college were a product of being on our own for the first time (ice cream for breakfast?!), of late-night cramming in the library (you needed that bag of Doritos and couldn't survive without it) and, of course, a product of the drinking, when drunk food binges and hangover remedies were basically a daily ritual.

When you can reach your microwave from your bed, and when you can nap between classes, why wouldn't you give yourself a junk food coma on a daily basis? The lengths we went to -- or perhaps more accurately, the depths we sank to -- in order to feed ourselves in our dorm rooms are hilarious and disgusting all at once.

College was great for many things, but our diet wasn't one of them. If you had any culinary inclinations, it was probably an uphill battle from day one. As much as we loved college, there are certain times we prefer to forget. Here are 14 of them.

    This seemed like a totally reasonable plan.

    And you're still not sure why it didn't work out so well.

    Only in college can your body withstand this punishment.

    If you had a fridge, it looked like this.

    How else should you respond?
