At the last con I went to, I barely ate. In fact, of it weren't for my friend's moms, we probably wouldn't have had anything! XD

Friday, we got to the con late and didn't eat anything. Saturday morning, my friends and I all had a small breakfast of a couple pastries and some tea and orange juice. Later that day, one of my friend's moms ordered pizza, called us up to the room, and we quickly ate a slice or two and left. My other friend's mom brought sodas and M&Ms, so we snacked on those every time we went back to the room.

Another reason we ate so light (at least that morning) is because we didn't want to risk messing up our costumes so early on in the day, which is why my breakfast consisted of only wheat.

That whole weekend I maybe ate one "real" meal. Forgetting to eat at a con is a very real, very dangerous thing. At the next con we go to, we're eating before we leave. :/

What we did when we went to A-kon 22 we got a nice hotel ($89 per night) that had a large breakfast. It had an omelet station, cereal, and other hot foods. We ate breakfast every morning excluding friday, because we left so early for the con, and having breakfat made the whole day better. Then Sunday we got to the con extra early and got a great parking spot where we could walk out to the car and get meals out of our handy-dandy ice chest.

Saturday was horrible for food though. We stayed from 9 am- 12 AM. Despite having breakfast I was pretty hungry all day. We only found a small food court that had limited selection and I was tired of it. It wasn't cheap either. We found out about the main food court right when we were leaving on Sunday. Duley noted that when I go back this year I will find the right food court. -.-

the biggest problem i had with what i ate at a con was that i had some mana potions and i think they where expired and it casused me to zonk out (more like sleeping potion). but for the other nights i was fine, i got a subway sandwitch and ate half of it when i got it and saved the rest for later when i needed it and i also had power bars and a water bottle so there is not much of a horror story.

eat healthy

lose weight is one of the biggest thing in my life, but now I eat a lot, after main course, I also have some biscuits, and good news is I haven't get fat, maybe a little bit. I weigh everyday.

For me, my first con wasn't bad at all. I think it had a lot to do with I was most excited for photo shoots (Which most occurred at least twice) and there were only a few panels I wanted to see so I had time to eat. However a friend of mine actually got a bloody nose from eating so little!

It probably didn't help she was feeling under the weather in general.

I don't have any stories to share, but I'm going to my first con this weekend, so that might change. Anyway, I plan on bringing a bento with lots of veggies and onigiri, so hopefully, I'll be able to eat healthy for the most part.

I usually forget to eat at cons, the thought to stop and eat always seem so bothersome.

it's a good idea to prepare some snacks, but sometimes we just too busy to eat them, at con we may forget starving. ^^

I tend to forget to eat a lot at cons..that is to say when I can actually get myself to eat.
I have really bad anxiety issues...so the Thursday night before a con starts up until probably later Sunday I can barely eat anything other than small snacks and tea to keep my blood sugar up.
It's no wonder I keep losing so much weight ._.
