Re: REPORTING IN - 4/3/05 and Question about Bloating

It's hard to say what was in the bourbon chicken - I just looked up a recipe, and it contained (basically) chicken, bourbon, butter, onion, spices, and heavy cream. But who's to say the restaurant makes it the same way? You'd basically have to contact them to find out for sure.
I've always been fine with garlic, so I don't have much advice on that one. I think the amount in the marinade would have been fine anyway. I can definitely see avoiding that famous chicken dish that has 40 cloves of garlic in it, heh.
I don't bloat, so I don't have much help there either. I can tell you, though, that straws are EVIL. You'll end up with so much more air in your system from one of those things, so if you've gotten gassy, that could be the culprit. But yes, bloating is a separate issue from weight altogether... IBS bloat usually is just gas.
