    Bodybuilding at boarding school

    I'm having some trouble right now. I currently attend boarding school and due to that my access to healthy food is limited. About only one of the three meals they have a day is healthy, even if I did eat all the meals that would not be enough calories. There's water fountains, so I easily get a gallon of water a day in probably. I also have some Orange Triad multivitamin left, as well as a unopened thing of Animal Pak. I also bought some mass gainer as a way to get calories in easier. I am still coming up short though, can anyone help me out or give me some tips?
    thanks

    If you're not getting enough Calories, I don't think drinking a gallon of water a day is helping. Theres plenty of water in food. If Calories are your goal, there are lots of ways to add them. Peanut butter, milk, peanuts, mayo, olive oil, etc. You might have to redefine what you consider "healthy" because thats an extremely broad generalization.

    Generally, if you read a piece of advice on the internet, assume it's wrong until proven otherwise. This applies especially to "conventional wisdom". -Belial

    Can you not have your own food? What foods do you have access to, and how much? And to be clear, "healthy" foods are not necessary to build size and strength. Hamburgers and such will do the trick just fine. You are confusing a bodybuilder's diet aimed at cutting for a show, or remaining as lean as possible in the off-season with a diet which can build muscle.

    I would also like to add coconut oil, macadamia oil, almonds, raw honey and avocados.
