EDIT: Please go here for a follow-up! http://www.ACen.org/...diet-survey-ii/

Thanks so much everyone for the responses!


I'm not sure where to put this aside without cutting in serious cosplay/con-related space. But if surveying isn't allowed and this has to be closed I understand too.


I'm here asking you con-goers what you eat when you attend cons!

Just list out whatever it is you eat to get you through the weekend if you can please!

Steak, hotdogs, burgers, pizza, breakfast buffets, and anything else that peaks my interest.

I pack my own food because I can't have gluten and it's usually slim pickings around the con center unless my friends are willing to drive out somewhere :)

ACen time is usually tough on the body. It's quite refreshing to get back to a legit diet structure after days of McDonald's (mainly breakfast food & McDoubles) and booze.

I try to make it to Mcdonalds and Giordannos at least once each per con.
Then the rest is what I bring with me like ramen and snacks....
I don't do a good job of eating well >.<

We always bring food, so we have granola bars, hot dogs/sandwich stuff, fruit (fresh and dried), bread, peanut butter, jelly, easy mac, and that fancy ramen with the vegetables in it, plus caffeinated beverages.

Usually we get a pizza on Saturday night, though. After all that microwave stuff, it feels fancy. XD

Pretty much this. I figure, I wont enjoy the con if I dont eat anything. Not to say this stuff is "good" for me, but its definately more sustaining then ramen & pockey. :)

I live almost entirely on Mountain Dew. Throwback if possible. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

(Well I also pack crackers, granola bars, chocolate [of course]. At least one meal is had in one of the hotels just for the experience.)

At ACen, I usually eat whatever is put in front me. Anything from granola bars to pizza.
The bad thing is that I can also forget to eat.... ^^'

I don't know what else to really put here....
So have a nice day. ^^

McDonald's and Denny's. Occasionally a $25 Hyattburger and/or $10 Exhibitor Hall Hot Dogs.

I think this year I'm going to bring some microwaveable rice packs, though.

A $25 burger. Seriously.

Yeah, pretty much when I do the Chicago run..I eat whatever I feel like eating. It IS my vacation and I am going to treat it as such.

I'm horrible with packing food for cons, even if I keep reminding myself to do so. Thus, since I usually staff at cons, if I'm not going out to eat with some of my teammates, I'll generally eat whatever's offered to staff. Even if it means pizza for five or six consecutive meals. (I wish I was kidding about that.)

I work the con as staff so I try to find a balanced meal from staff food. However I go into con eating mode and seem to need a great more food intake than normal life. I find I can eat a great deal of snacks, far more than I would at home and I do not see any notable gain in weight.
