Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! Come to the U.S.! You won't have trouble with the food as long as you avoid fast food restaurants like Mc Donalds and Burger King. We do have a lot of fast food restaurants in the U.S. but the whole LA area has tons of restaurants in general. We are not a country that is known for our food in that there aren't a lot of foods that are specifically American but I think there is a lot of great food here. We do have lots of ethnic restaurant choices here. Our son lives in Pasadena (in the LA area) so we have been out there a few times. I know a previous poster suggested ordering steak as a safe choice. That would not be a good choice for me since beef is high in fat. If I have steak I eat a couple of bites of someone else's steak. I never eat a whole portion. When I am eating at a restaurant I stick with chicken or turkey (never anything fried). I avoid beans, and fatty foods as well as dairy. I would have to say that breakfast is the hardest meal for me when I am away from home since I try to stay away from whole eggs (preferring egg whites), cheese, and any type of breakfast meat. Bacon, ham, or sausage are staples of the American breakfast. I pass on the breakfast meats because they are very high in fat. If it comes with the breakfast I let it sit on my plate. If I am at a restaurant and I can't find anything safe to eat I order white toast without butter and put jelly on it. Some places will substitute egg whites for whole eggs. If they do then I order scrambled egg whites with tomatoes and spinach. I usually take one Immodium before each meal during travel just for added security. I keep chewable Immodium tablets with me at all times so that if I feel rumbles indicating impending diarrhea I can just take more Immodium. It is not usually too hard to find public restrooms in the U.S. especially in a major metropolitan area like LA. I love the Pasadena area! there is a lot to do there but the traffic is pretty awful all around the LA area. It is the second worst city to drive in the U. S. behind New York City. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the U. S. since it has so much variation. Everything from rural to metropolitan to deserts to mountains, salt water to huge inland lakes to small inland lakes. I could go on and on. If you do decide to come to the U.S. I would be happy to give you more information.
Ok thank you i will look into it we are hoping to go turkey... I wanted usa but it costs to much!! always wanted to visit LA! Lol. I am starting fodmaps friday when i do my shop i have ordered a book, i will take that with me aswell. I am not sure if i am allowed to take food with me or that i really want to anyway lol. I can cope with the 5 hour flight i'll use imodium its just the 7 days there. I didn't think of looking it up, since its a muslim country i think they might eat alot of curry i hope not! Lol i will look it up later today thanks again.
