performance: gaining 1.8 lb a week
I have acid reflux and I'm on the acid reflux solution diet. I've been overweight most of my life. I lost 25lb when I was 17 and slowly gained it back over the course of college, plus extra. After I finally bought a car, I gained another 10lb and thats when I started to freak out about it. I tried to lose weight but couldn't commit to diet or fitness program. My acid reflux got worse, the pills weren't helping any more. I started to get scared about my health. I knew being fat was unhealthy but I was only 25 and felt so sick.
I was looking for a cook book at the library when I saw a book called the Acid Reflux Solution. It was just what I had been looking for, a low acid cook book. I was wrong though, the titular solution was actually smaller portions and cutting out chocolate and caffeine. I was desperate for a solution though and followed that book to the tee. I when from 3 serving of chocolate a day to zero. I reduced my caffeine intake by more then half. I weighed my carbs and protean at meals. And, slowly but surely, I started to feel less sick. My nighttime cough went away. The daily pain in my chest went away. and, almost as an afterthought, I lost some weight. one day, I looked in the mirror and saw my college hips, back from beyond the grave! I was happy to see them.
I need to keep reminding myself it still hasn't been that long. I still get frustrated, about my looks, about the way my close fit, about my stomach, which still hurts sometimes. I need to keep reminding myself that it will take my body a while to heal itself. My husband keeps telling me that it will heal and these things take time. and only time will tell. I am confident though now that there is hope for me and that I wont be sick forever.
I haven't fallowed a diet in a long time because I've had trouble finding a diet that fixed what was wrong with me. This one really has and I feel awful the minute I go off it. So I think I'll be able to stick with it.
