First, let’s take commissary food out of the equation. In Missouri they give you a 2000 calory a day diet. But that’s only if you eat everything on your plate. Chances are you will not. So unless you are able to spend money at the prison commissary on food you will lose weight.
I was fortunate to have loved ones send me money. I have never forgotten that.
Now the types of food. Some wasn’t bad but most was bad. Pizzas were like school pizzas. Square with just cheese on them oatmeal and dry cereal wasn’t bad but how can you mess that up?
