I am going to college in the fall, living in residence, and following a meal plan (mandatory). I have been eating paleo for several months, and once I started I never looked back. I am required to purchase a meal plan at my school that works by deducting money from your account with every purchase made, as opposed to a 3-meal a day buffet style (which I'm guessing might be easier for me to make proper choices).
The school's website indicates that they allow accommodations for students with medical conditions and intolerances. I feel like if I try explaining to their nutritionist that 'grains=poison', I'll just be told that they can't do anything about me...CW and all
I'm hoping I can send them an email from the intolerances side of things. How can I try and spin the situation when I contact them to see what kind of accommodations they can make for me? Perhaps inflammation?
PS - I was also wondering if this is unethical to try and find a way to eat a diet that I think is much healthier than what is standard fare there, because I suppose this is not a true intolerance, like shellfish allergies. However, I am paying by the plate, and it only makes sense for the school to charge me more per meal if I am not eating inexpensive rice or potatoes.
