One possibility is to bring something. That way you can always have something
to eat, and you can share it with your friends, thereby introducing them to the
joys of fatfree eating! You can also loosen up a bit, depending on how
stringent your needs are!

The English-language version (or rather, original) is called Fit for Life. I
looked into it for a while. Personally, and this is only my opinion, I think
Harry's explanations are off the wall and have NO biochemical basis, but I LOVE
Marilyn's recipes! They aren't FF, but they can be pretty easily adapted, as I
recall. Since I've gone McDougall, I haven't looked much in my FFL cookbooks.

A friend of mine who had intestinal problems felt much better when she was on
the Fit for Life diet, but personally I think she was just lactose intolerant,
and just cutting out dairy without doing all sorts of voodoo in terms of
combining would have worked just as well. But that's JMHO.

Be well, Hadass
