Oh yes - this can be fraught with problems!
You could take vegetable snacks (crudites) and a fat-free dip like cottage cheese with chives, or low fat hummus as your contribution to the festivities. Also you could take chunks of fruit.
When you take your meat for the braai, how about taking a skewer of chicken, peppers, apricots, prunes and onion - go easy on any marinades and sauces - tho you could marinade in lemon juice and chilli or curry powder??
I have an advantage over you (tho most people seem to think it's awful)! I am gluten-intolerant so I leave the bread and nachos etc alone! I do eat the guacamole tho, but on celery or chunk of pepper!!
The biltong should be ok unless it is salty in which case you'll end up with too much sodium and retain water, plus be thirsty and drink more G&Ts
You are going to have to steer clear of the fatty meats - maybe start taking chicken breasts or steak (or ostrich steaks which are stunning)
And of course - loads and loads of salad and leave the dressings alone - stick to lemon juice and black pepper and maybe balsamic vinegar
Good luck and great South African eating :))
