I wanted to update you on my progress. It's now been 1 week and I can say there have been positive changes and I am very optimistic.
All your recipes have been excellent. We had Salmon with the mustard and brown sugar and it was outstanding.
I should mention my wife is also ""going along"" with me on this adventure and even my two sons, 17 and 19 share some of the meals. They all loved the salmon and the buttermilk pancakes.
My wife has gained a bonus in that she now is much more regular, pretty much every day versus her usual once a week. I have lost about 4 pounds. It is still a chore to resist the after dinner or pre bedtime snacks, but I feel better physically and mentally for staying with your plan. I also have GERD and have stopped taking my Prilosec and haven't had the heartburn, another bonus.
I will update you after week two.
I have been on your program now for six days and am feeling so much better.
I was diagnosed with GERD and was handed pills. No questions about what I ate or what foods contributed to causing GERD. My doctor just gave me samples of Nexium. I felt my diet was healthy--lots of fruits and vegetables. That is why I thought I could not possibly have GERD. I went on the internet to research it and saw I had a good share of the symptoms, so I guessed the doctor was right on her diagnosis. I felt bloated after meals, had lots of burps, gas, cough, headache, my joints hurt and I felt terrible overall and had no energy. My arthritis seemed to be getting worse.
Then I found your website. There is a lot of merit in your plan and am feeling so much better--only a few burps now and then. Besides that I have lost 4 lbs.
It is nice because you can eat everything, just differently than before. Your recipes have been delicious so far. Last night we had Fish Stew and it was DELICIOUS!
I originally started the program to lose the pounds I can't seem get rid of with all the diets I have tried. I thought what the heck, what I have to lose but pounds.
After just 4 days on Great Taste No Pain I have given up my acid reflux pills and I have lost 2 lbs. The plan is so easy. To drop the weight and feel pain free is GREAT.
I am truly grateful to you and your program. I started on April 21, 2008 and by the fourth day my symptoms had disappeared and have been gone since then.
My allergies started about 20 years ago and got worse over time. I became intolerant to certain foods like milk, wheat and pork. For the last three years, the symptoms have included a chronic cough, digestive problems, frequent colds and even bronchitis. I could not even speak without coughing.
I've taken all different medications for allergies, asthma and acid reflux and nothing helped.
It affected my work--I couldn't answer the phone without having water or hard candies to help me through. After a long meeting with my staff I would end up hoarse, with a lot of pain in my throat. My energy was low and I felt tired and even depressed.
I feel blessed that I found your program and cannot thank you enough for sharing your findings with others. Everybody notices that I don't cough anymore and when they
ask me what I did, I tell them about Great Taste No Pain. I am enjoying my food now and trying new ways to eat my vegetables and do the right combinations. I feel great and
I have lots of energy. I am 68 years old and still work full-time, and plan on continuing with my job that I love.
Your e-mails are also very informative.
Thanks and keep up the great work.
I have been suffering from acid reflux for about 5 or 6 years. As a professional singer I cannot live with the damaging affects of reflux to my vocal chords.
I've tried Prilosec and Nexium but I don't like the idea of having to take drugs for the rest of my life. I've also tried other "natural cures" online that didn't cure me at all.
Finally I found a testimony from an opera singer who said she got rid of her reflux by combining the right foods. I searched the net and thankfully found you.
Your program opened up a whole new concept to me of being able to eat the foods I love without suffering vocal trauma. The meals are fun and easy to prepare and my whole
family loves them.
Thank you Sherry and I hope I get the chance to meet you and your husband sometime.
Thank you again for introducing me to a wonderful way of eating!
I can see a huge difference in my digestive tract using your Great Taste No Pain program...what am I missing? Letís see...acid reflux.... itís gone...yahoo!!! You got to hate that burping, and burning, and the resulting mucous that your body produces to try to protect your sensitive esophageal lining with, which means, of course, you are coughing it up for a couple hours every day, after a meal, as well as clearing your throat continually...
Gone also the feeling that I still need to "go" although I already went... who wants the 2 hour non-productive bathroom visit...not me, thank you.....also gone, which is even worse, the productive visit that never end...ugh, diarrhea... need I say you never know which visit it will be...disgusting.
Another thing I am missing is no more pain, or cramps in my whole lower abdomen, you can't go out cause you hurt, and you are not sure if you will need the facilities, or you are just going to suffer pain, so another day wasted.
I hated to eat, because I felt better when I didn't, but if you are going to be healthy and well not eating just doesnít cut it.
I have to say you have a great product, and some wise information thatís not readily available in the mainstream.... Who knew it could be this simple?
I have only recently purchased your system but have already noticed a big difference. I have had IBS in the past and have recently been hospitalized for diverticulitis. Amazing how painful that was! This was the main reason I was interested in your work, however of more pressing need was my lack of sleep.
For many weeks now I have had trouble sleeping at night (even lying down) due to acid reflux and heartburn. I really don't like taking indigestion tablets because I am aware that they do so much damage, and try to avoid them if possible - but I couldn't do without sleep!
I am now much more aware of what I should and shouldn't be eating in the evening, and have removed the pack of indigestion tablets from my bedside table. I'm also not feeling so bloated after eating as I have started on the food combining as you suggest.
So thank you very much! I'm able to get to sleep now and I look forward to reading the rest of your reports and making some permanent, easy to sustain changes to my health and well-being.
I have never believed in taking medication because of all the side effects; I would rather bear the pain. Since using your program I no longer have acid reflux or the feeling of "eating too much" and being miserable. I don't feel boated. In fact, now I get hungry faster because my food digests so much quicker. I'm sleeping better because I don't have indigestion problems. I feel really good.
You are absolutely correct--100%--about the "purple pill." I had been on Nexium for about 5 years due to a large hiatal hernia, acid reflux, gas, bloating, and IBS---
I had seen the specialists, and finally discovered your plan out of desperation looking up IBS on the net.
I have followed your plan to the letter for approx. 1.5 weeks. I was COMPLETELY pain free the first day (and symptom free) and have been ever since.
You are so right on when you say we need naturally occurring acids in our stomach. I am enjoying foods I couldn't eat for years.
I am totally off Nexium, plus I need no gas pills, no Pepcid and no Imodium.
Thanks for giving me a second chance--We are truly what we eat!
I am most grateful.
I am writing to tell you that I have been using this program for a week now and I am very surprised at how good I am feeling.
One week ago I was suffering terribly from pain from my hiatal hernia, IBS, gerd, etc. I had bloating that would not go away no matter what I did or what I took. I have been suffering for years!
It is 6 days and counting and my stomach is 95% better! To say I'm shocked and relieved is an understatement.
I really do think I will be able to stick with this way of eating and I am very happy I took the time to read your information and order your Great Taste No Pain program.
