I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

So sorry to hear that your having problems. I didn't have the stretch, but I have heard it's pretty easy, and a big relief after. I.
You get some relief soon..
I'd give it some time after getting sick before you try to sip your fluids...
Thanks kfletcher.i have just started a mug of tea and had a crispbread as I have had almost nil intake today and that not good.i am ready for bit Medifast food but afraid to have much,..

Good luck to you and I.
Your feeling better really soon..
