Ok, I'm doing a study in large part to save money, but I am also curious as to how my body will react and what other changes if any will occur during this study. I haven't set a time limit on this yet but starting tomorrow, I'm going to eat cup of noodles every day every other week and eat regular the other two weeks...I wanna know if anybody knows if there would be any potential side effects to the sodium I will be ingesting on noodle weeks?

Drink water to neutralize the sodium. Potassium should also help.

Meaning you're going to replace a meal with a cup o' noodles or eat that the whole day? If you're just going to replace one meal there won't be any noticeable effects.

Take some multi-vitamins while your eating just the noodles. Theres really nothing to them to help you that way....

Cup O noodles suck. They are prison food(or job corps food). I do not think it will have any effect on you because we seen people eat so many of them in job corps.

Cup-O-Noodles is the breakfast, lunch and dinner Of champions

and if you sprinkle a little granulated sugar on them they can also be the dessert

Correct.

If, in fact, you are doing this mainly for research purposes, eat the noodles, and nothing else. You're not gonna have accurate findings if you start taking vitamins to make up for what you're not eating. I think water should be the only thing allowed.

I'm on a student budget too and I tried that and got sick of it after a few months. PB + J is cheap and so is instant rice.

It'll cost about 66 cents a day to eat which would make room in my budget because I have quite a few things that I need to do to my car, and I do want to see how long before I'm sick of them but it may take a bit longer since I'm only doing this Bi-Weekly.

I don't see how you would get sick of them when you will not be eating them for 2 weeks then eating them again. It would be worth doing(as a study) if you were just eating the noodles

Ramen > cup o noodles

I'm anticipating my college diet will consist of Bananas, Ramen Noodles, and Water.

In my financial aid statement attached to my LOI, they say they are providing meal plan B. To my understanding, it's a card where I can use at any ISU cafeteria/eating venue. Hopefully it hold my fat ass over.

If you eat the three you listed above you will not be performing well. I figured they would teach you about diet, as an athlete.

That's why you join the military prior to college. After 4 years of MRE's - a diet consisting of Cup-O-Noodles would rock.

My advice to anyone going to college is: get a job in the food service industry. I had a job at a hotel/convention center in Madison where i would work for a little bit in the morning and eat free breakfast. I would usually have class & then return to work for lunch & eat free lunch. Then i would go back to class. At least twice a week i would also work dinner and eat for free there as well.

Not to mention raiding the fridge & pantry!!!

Bluto: My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.

Otter: Better listen to him, Flounder. He's pre-med.

I'm taking Intro to Nutrition this semester and this idea just makes me mad. And I'm not even a health freak. Just knowing the importance of a healthy diet influences a lot of what I eat and my physical activity. The purpose of this class was a few easy credits but its had more of an impact.
