Oh, college. Back when the only nutrition you got came from a class that filled your science component without any Periodic Table heavy-lifting.

To celebrate those glory days spent teetering on the edge of scurvy, we've rebuilt the food pyramid (click here for an enlarged version) to account for frozen vegetables, food pillaged from roommates, and visits from your friends' parents. Hover over each slice of the pyramid to see more details, like how many servings of burgers you should eat past midnight.
