What's the best way to ease into unhealthy eating? My SO is joining the Navy. He is vegan and not just vegan, but a "I only eat whole foods" type and knows this just isn't going to happen once he goes in.

He knows that he most likely wont be able to even be a strict vegetarian (pulling bacon out of beans, just accepting that his vegetables may have chicken stock), but is really worried about what kind of shock this is going to be to his system. He recently spent a day at his parents house in the mountains and they had bought him frozen vegan eggrolls so he'd have something to eat. Let's just say that after eating those and cheap white bread, he was in the kind of gut distress that makes you want to just go ahead and set up the bathroom like a living room.
Dealing with this would not be ideal at bootcamp. :)
Does anyone have a plan for reintroducing crap (ha) back into your diet to help mitigate some of the butt consequences? Does anyone have any experience eating vegetarian or very healthy at least in the Navy?
