With all the special diets out there and things people can and cannot eat, I am sure there will be things that you can eat. I know that when I go to retreats at the church and get served food, there is always a gluten free, low fat, low sugar etc options. I am also sure that you could get your hand on the menu prior to the event.
Drink water before the meal, feel your plate 1st with veggies and or salad without dressing then add protein and other items if you get to select. If not and you are served eat only about half of what is on the plate. Go easy on breads and dessert.
see if you can contact someone who knows the menu. These days there are so many vegetarians and diabetics that most menus will include a few options that are healthier. Have fun

We will be traveling to a college Reunion soon and will be away from our own kitchen for 5-6 days. I can manage the snacking -in-the-car issues, but what do I do with the food placed in front of me at the organized meals? Should I just plan on having fruit and yogurt in the room on the off chance that I can only eat small portions? A buffet, while dangerous, at least allows me to choose my own food. Help would be appreciated.
