    In case of tourist's stomach

    I am bored and suffer from it myself. Hopefully it will be gone in a few days. I had to go to the doctor after the 2nd rebound in 8 days. Will eat antibiotics and some pain relievers since I am bloated and my stomach hurts.

    Thought I would share the dietary plan in case someone encounters this too. Especially what not to eat. I thought milk and youghurt was good for me...

    Anyway here it goes ( I will do this for some 5 days):


    For 3 to 4 days:
    NO dairy products, e.g. milk, cheese, butter, ice-cream
    NO cakes or cookies
    NO greasy or fried foods, oily soup, Chinese dim-sum, salad dressing, mayonaisse
    NO citrus products, e.g. orange juice, lemon, grapefruit


    1st day of illness
    Lots of fluids

    If there is nausea or vomiting, frequent small amounts of fluids:
    Water
    Pedialyte (for babies)
    Rice water
    Pocari Sweat ("chinese Gatorade")
    Gatorade

    Steamed rice, congee, white bread, saltine crackers, (jam optional)


    3 more days of light, bland diet
    Steamed rice, congee, boiled pasta
    Steamed or boiled meat (chicken or fish) and vegetables
    Fruits, e.g. apples, bananas

    strange .. where and what have you been eating?

    Sounds like something that hasnt been cooked well enough is making its way into you system.

    I guess we cant invite you out for drinks on Thursday then...

    The best guess is icecubes made from tap water (I am not only swedish, I am stupid too...) or else it was an Egg McMuffin from McDonalds but I doubt that

    The only times I ever get a stomach ache here in HK is every time I go to Macdonald's!!!

    I always get a bottle of weisen u from mannings and take one after each meal.

    Always takes me at least a week to acclimatise back to local cooking after the stodgy food in u.k.

    Should not be the tap water. It is fairly safe here in HK... may be I've become used to it.
