Yes do yourself a favor and stay away from pizza as much as possible, unless you know you'll be home the rest of the evening.
I always plan ahead if I know I'm going out and dont want to wear my "fat" jeans I'll eat super healthy all day.
Follow the sage advice given to you and you'll do fine!
I'm glad this posting is able to help ! Actually I was gonna say since I posted this I've been on vacation but remembered to take the metamucil tablets daily (2 a day depending on your consipation I've been told 2 in the morning 2 at night as well) Anyways WOW what a freaking difference! So basically I took the pills in the morning or when i ate lunch (drink a lot of water when you take them) and i was pretty regular.. I didn't have any pains, and when i'd feel the gas come on I'd take gas -x or something.. but again for the most part I did pretty well! I also ate MUCh slower and tried to just concentrate on not allowing more air to go into my stomach (less talking when you eat..
I was prescribed zelnorm a while back but stopped them b/c my stomach hurt too much- otherwise no doctor has prescribed any meds, basically just take a lot of fiber, drink water, avoid all the foods that make u sick (listed above) i know it's hard, but i ate a lot of pizza on my trip but just kept the metamucil going!
Anyways i know we all have the same problem but with variations.. It's great to know we can help eachother!
