I'm one of those people. I can't make it much more than three and a half hours without passing out if I don't eat.

The longest class I've ever had though was three hours and we even got a 15 min break in the middle of it, so it's never been a problem as far as classes go. (it's been really inconvenient in other situations though. Seriously, screw my genetics.)

So yeah, I believe your professor is being unreasonable obviously, but unless it poses a serious health risk for you, there probably isn't much you can do about it.

^ a sip of Pepsi or Coke, a couple of candy are not good enough for you?

If they found someone on the floor, due to low sugar level, they make you sip a Pepsi or two. O.j., if you're on a diet.

energy drinks are always an option for those with diabetes.

If we're talking highschool then yes it's sort of right because I've seen people who just don't give any fucks about littering in the classroom and really just around the school. But for a class like that is wrong. People need to eat.

I don't know. I think it's more reasonable to eat before class, than during class. I think if I were paying for college though, I wouldn't want food, drinks, or anything to distract me from getting the education I'm paying for.

Reasonable.


You eat before or after class or during breaks if the class has them.

I agree with all of this. And as I mentioned before. Between practice and workouts, I could only eat in class. Especially if it was a 3+ hour class/lab. Eating kept me functioning and I always made sure that I wasn't loud or distracting.

I never said that they have free reign. I, however, do find it hard to believe that there are no out-of-classroom breaks during the lectures the OP's buddy mentioned. I stand by my previous words, but I did not intend to insinuate that the professor has every and all rights. For every unreasonable upper, there are those below who feel like their every whim must be catered to. I initially felt it unnecessary to explain so much.

Wow, at least give them a break no? My class occasionally gets a break, but that's when my professor kind of feels like it. Oh, and it's a two hour class, but still!

Gatorade?
Its three types: Energy, Hydration, Recovery

Should you drink the Hydration one? Since you proclaimed earlier you got classes in between practice (Allen Iverson) and work out.

Gatorade candy strips?

I'm with 'spensaur' on this. Adjust your meals according to the professors. Colleges function very similarly to work; you do NOT have the luxury of doing whatever you like.


This. School is where they condition you to follow directions, in preparation for the work world- Which is sometimes even more inconvenient.

I live in "the civilized world" and sometimes I don't get to eat until 4PM if there's some kind of long work meeting.

Suck it up.

I'm fine with people eating in class as long as it's not like uber distractive (which it always is.) I mean that's the main reason--the crunchy sounds, the cringly sounds, other associated sounds... I mean c'mon. He's giving a lecture and you're making so much noise.

If you can quietly eat like a sandwich and sip on water or soda... it's fine.. I don't see a problem... oh and I guess there's the smell of food. But, no one really complains too much about that.

Oh god. Those things are awful. And bad for you to be honest. I rowed in college....I needed a lot more calories than that. And healthy calories. That's too much processed sugar. I'd pass out and puke.
