Thank you so much for posting this one! Last year, when I had this problem, I called my doctor's office on the 4th day. Her nurse said she wanted me to start the B.R.A.T. diet right away. When you can 'see' it spelled out, you can tell it's an acronym but, only being able to 'hear' 'brat', didn't do me any favors. My brain freaked out, my whole body shuddered, and I tried really hard not to do it, but a soft 'ugh' sound escaped me. She heard it, of course, laughed before saying, 'I'm sorry. It's the B, R, A, and T diet. I keep forgetting I should spell it out instead of using the acronym.' 'Then' she told me what it stood for, which was a 'thousand' times better because I can't stand the taste of brats (rhymes with 'rots' as opposed to 'rats'), which makes me a social outcast in Wisconsin. Ha! Anyway, the remedy works great!
