bherhei Posted October 3, 2012 Share Posted October 3, 2012 Hello! I started Whole30 September 10th and unexpectedly just two days after my thirty days are over I will be going away for about ten days where I'll have little control over the food served to me. Originally I thought I would have a few weeks of transition time in between to think through things a bit more and give my body some time to see if dairy was an issue, etc. So...this is freaking me out a bit as I'm worried that the whole week I am going to be sick or headachy from having to so quickly reintroduce new foods or accidentally eating things I don't know have harmful ingredients. I'm guessing the food where we will be staying, which is in Germany, will be buffet style, and I'm just hoping there are some grilled, not breaded meats and vegetables without sauces but it's doubtful. Here in Hungary where I live there would be almost no options in a similar situation and it would be quite difficult. I'm a picky eater to begin with (not healthy, picky) and so I usually rely on bread and cheese at these types of events. I genuinely feel confused about how to go about this. Originally I had planned to just slowly reintroduce dairy and now I'm just not sure. I need some advice about how to prioritize, for example, try to still avoid all sugar but don't worry about dairy? Or go ahead with sugar but don't eat dairy unless it's a last resort? Breads, no breads, brown breads? I plan to get right back on a similar to Whole30 track once I return (didn't think the 30 days was enough for me) so mostly I'm just concerned about feeling unwell during this important conference. [Please take note that for financial reasons I will be unable to specially order my own food and also that it isn't the US where you can easily get the random whole foods that you want. I'm already used to that as I live in a small village in Hungary but I don't really have any idea what the food will be like in this equally small German town.] This whole thing is making me want to cry as I'm feeling so good about the drastic changes that I stuck to for almost thirty days now. I had never done any type of primal or paleo type eating and was just at a desperate place health/weight wise and decided to give something completely new a try. I haven't been able to eat organic per say but otherwise I have completely stuck to the plan. I need more time to keep doing this and I don't want to blow it all now. Any thoughts or advice?
