Here's a question I don't see anyone here addressing.
Even though I've never been instructed to take this prep (still not available in the US from what I can determine), any prep I've taken coincides with a full liquid diet the day of prep.
So when I wake up that day, all solids are definitely out. I am drinking water, gatorade, clear broth, tea/coffee w/o cream, soda, jello, just not anything with red dye in it.
I wouldn't be interested in going out to dinner while on a diet like this!
But if going out to eat when others are eating and you are just sipping a beverage and if you think you can delay the start of this prep, then I guess it could work.
I'm however hesitant to suggest you delay the start of the prep too.
Any prep I begin takes a lot of time to work. Almost 12 hours. I prefer Fleet's Phospho Soda, my first dose is usually 1 pm, followed by second dose at 6 pm. I am still have discharge until 11 pm or later.
Personally, I'd skip the dinner and concentrate on being as cleaned out as possible. Not rushing this entire prep schedule. But that's just me.
I wish you well.
