View Full Version : Question re Heartburn

I'm back on doing Phase one this is week two for me. Did anyone get really bad heartburn while doing phase one? Ever since starting it, I've had it each day and pretty bad. I'd already been to doctor for a check up, and everything is great. This is about to drive me nuts.

I havent, but this is the start of my third week and I notice when I eat certain foods my tummy gets rumbly and is full after a few bites.

Could you post sample menus of what you have ben eating? that may help- I don't think that ever happened to me... usually if I get heartburn or indigestion I am eating foods that aren't healthy for me :( Maybe someone else here can help more... But like I said a sample menu would be great :)

I agree about posting a sample menu from a typical day of yours.

Also, fresh parsley works wonders for heartburn. I ate it all through both of my pregnancies and put it in my smoothies every day to avoid having it. Just chew on a few leaves until the heartburn is gone. It also gives you fresh breath!

I third the sample menu. I have family history of GERD and was unlucky enough to be "blessed" w/ problems as well. As a result, until I got my doctor to put me on Aciphex, I had heartburn every day (for YEARS). It was to the point where I would wake up w/ heartburn. :( I'm hoping that when I reach my goal weight I can go off the Aciphex and enjoy life w/o meds to control heartburn. I know a lot of mine has to do w/ my weight as well as genetics. I never EVER want to go back to being in agony every single day and downing 6 or 7 Tums every night.

Heartburn? Add me as a fourth for the "What are you eating on a daily basis" group. It might be that you just need to stay away from something you are eating a ton of.

I'll get a sample menu posted got to remember what I was eating it's different every day.

Since you aren't sure what you are eating each day maybe just post a list of the foods that you are eating, not necessarily everyday but in general... like what was on your grocery list? :)

I know for me anything processed these days seems to really get to me... and anything super high in fat(though I haven't been eating cheese so not much of a problem anymore!)

I just started phase 1 and this is my third day. I noticed right away that I get heartburn at night. But I recently started getting heartburn and acid reflux before the diet so I'm not sure what is causing it. I thought the diet would help but it hasn't so far. One thing that I do is eat Ginger candy (from the heath food store) and I suggest the kind that is sulfur free. It works instantly to cool the heart burn. I know it's not part of the diet though. You might try ginger tea. It's really good; boil water and put about 6 slices of freshly peeled ginger root. let it seep and drink the tea. It's delicious.
