Good question... I dunno what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..

The first time you get the foamies you will know for certain. I had it happen one time, and it was nasty. I basically felt like I was foaming at the mouth lol. Lots of really foamy saliva...its gross for sure...

I had thought it was called "Dumping " though I have went through this experience several times in five months. Your chest hurts and you want to vomit but can't so these foamies is all you can get out. and you just have to let it pass on it's own. I.


I don't get it anymore, but it was my own fault because I either ate too fast or ate the wrong foods like some fried fish & chips...

I have had this 2 times in 7 months since.


The first time I was in a hotel at a conference and thought I was going to have to call 911 (or die)...the second time I was home. I learned that I drank too soon after eating and that caused it. It lasted for about 10-15 minutes - though it seemed like forever! The symptoms are the same as everyone else, pain in the chest, want to vomit but can't and lots of foamy syliva...not much fun, but if you are careful hopefully it won't happen...

I wondered what they were too until it happened to me. You will know it when you get them (if you do)!! No doubt about it. It only happened to me twice thank goodness...

I wish I did not know what they are but I do. If is foaming in the mouth. Mine was caused by eating too much. Or to fast. Or something your pouch did not like. Try to.


At all costs!.

The foamies is pretty much how it sounds a foamie, frothy, mucus like nastiness... it's usually caused by eating a bite or two too many or not chewed as well. In the beginning I sometimes got them when I tried to push the envelope a bit and take "just one more bite" they usually go away after you get the hang of how many chews you need and learn your body "soft cues" to stop eating (around 4 months or so for most of us.).

Try and learn your soft cue... toward the time you are reaching your limit you may sigh, burp, sneeze, hiccup, have your nose run... it's different for everyone... and it is related to the vagus nerve. If you can catch on to what your soft cue is you should have less foamies, puking, or over all feeling crud cause you ate too much...
