    How much do you off-road?

    I feel like the Whole30 was easy compared to coming off of it. I feel like it would be easier (in theory) to stay on it, but that's not realistic for me. I am a very social person, and I like to hang out with friends and have a glass of wine. I also love chocolate. So those are my big challenges. What advice do you have? My plan is basically to try to do remain gluten, dairy & sugar free as much as I can. And to maybe have a drink or two once or twice a week. The problem is that two glasses of wine turns into four and then the next day I eat crazy because the alcohol has messed up my blood sugar (I am hypoglycemic). I know the easy thing would be to say no drinking, but again, that doesn't feel realistic to me. Partly because my husband still drinks, though mostly beer, which isn't tempting to me. I don't know if it is realistic, but one idea I had was to not buy wine and have it in the house. If I want a glass, have one when I go out with a friend or with my husband, but don't buy bottles and have them at home. Or to only have cocktails at home, because for some reason I find it easier to only have one of those. Any other suggestions for off-roading without going totally insane?
