I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you an answer..
Thanks for reply paatiwack.sorry you having probs too,it awful when it happens isnt it? we could do with some sort of id card that explains about gbs to Medifast food outlets.yes Medifast food containers are good idea,i do take one when I go out to eat,take care.i did complain about her attitude to her manager and she apologised and said we wouldnt be bothered again,..
Aren't you glad the pub owner where you uses the toilet didn't tell you that the porcelain was for paying custmers only and to get your shit out of there? LOL.
As for the bitch with the attitude, well that would have takne me about a nano second to change her tone of voice, maximum. Life rarely gives you the pleasure to just blast someone when their being an asshole..
You see in this country you would have ended up in a chain resturant or.
House where nobody would have cared whether or not you had a paper cup..
Hi doubleb .the pub owner didnt get the chance to say anything to me as I flew in like a whirlwind and legged it to his bathroom and just let go in the sink,so glad no one came in,i would have won the olympic sprint I can tell you lol,when you gotta go you gotta goooooooo.as for the woman my hackles were rising but my family made me ignore it,..
My doc actually gave us a card explaining about.
And that we would require smaller sizes and most places always accomodate and don't hassle us. you will learn in time the feeling of eating one bit too many to help prevent throwing up especially when out in public. I"ve had to do driving down the road before. Not fun at all. Unfortunately there are some nasty people out there. Things will get better..
It sounds like an awful experience, I'm sure she just didn't understand, and perhaps was having a bad day..
I will admit that I will often scout out toilets when dining out, and sit on the ends of a row just in case. Most of my friends and family understand, and some can even predict it (apparently I turn a lovely shade of red when i've eaten something that isn't going down), though I am pleased to say that it does settle down. (though.
Is trial and error!)..
My Dr. gave me a card explaining what I had done and I've only had to show it a couple times. So far no problems about letting me order off the junior or senior menu and also bringing me a take home container right away..
I would have ripped that waitress a new one, I don't put up with that crap any more. Attitude change, anyone?..
I carry an airsick bag with me. I can't be sure what is going to set me off. It is in a small envelope that I keep in my purse. And car. And....
I can't speak for the attitude of the pub bitch but I have had run in's with some restaurants that would not honor the card my doctor gave me. At first my hubby and I agreed to simply not frequent these places anymore but I finally decided it wasn't worth the few cents I might save if they charged me for the lesser amount of food. I have never heard of there being a problem with drinking out of paper cups her in the states. lol But you can be sure the rude behavior is abundant here..
One thing I would recommend is getting familiar with a pub that is GBS friendly and give them all your business. I know that sounds too obvious but I have discovered once they see me as a regular they love me and treat me special. They know I will be bringing my family and friends with me..
And unfortunately for the anti GBS stores I will not let it go. I send a letter to the owner and tell them what they are losing out on..
You have better luck and feel better about going out soon...
Hi sue and evryone thanx so much for the repies.i am a little newby at taking my pouchy out to dinner lol. now we went out again last night and went to my local carvery and they were great.i had a childs menu and only managed gravy one potato with stuffing and then put meat in a container.they put lemon in my water and attitude way different.i dont like gb people to have discrimination.it is areal special need re food.i am not going to let it spoil the benefits my bypass is doing though just put it down to their ignorance.be sure me and pouch will hit the shopping mall again lol...
I am 4 weeks out and have learned the skill to hold whatever I need to until I get to the bathroom. I was at first embarrassed to throw up but being caught at work now I turn it into a joke. Ive been out twice without waitress issues......
