I'm in awe over this way of eating!! I've been following the Great Taste No Pain way of eating for about two weeks now, but not without a few mistakes. It takes some
discipline to undo all those years of combining foods wrong.
The first thing I noticed was a great night's sleep followed by another and another. The bonus that came every morning was incredible ENERGY that lasted all day. Yahoo!!!
I decided to try this because of the little purple pill I was taking for a couple of years now. Why didn't the doctor say...you really need to get off of this medication?
Every time I tried on my own I had terrible results....heartburn, etc.
I stopped taking the Nexium right away and have NO HEARTBURN. Now if I can only get my husband to follow. He is watching me and when he is ready I hope he follows me. Why suffer if you don't have to and fill your body with drugs we don't need?
The next thing I noticed was less joint pain. I come from a long line of osteoarthritis and Alzheimer's sufferers. I was feeling so much pain in my joints that doing laundry on the weekends was very difficult not to mention gardening. Now I have the energy after work with no pain to get the jobs done at home in the evenings.
Oh yeah, the weight is dropping too. I'm never hungry and always satisfied with the food combo's. This truly is a gift.
I thought I was ready for an early grave and feeling so darn old, but that is not to be. Thank God.
Sherry, this has been a blessing to me and I can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge and all those great recipes. I love the Ratatouille.
Here's my story. I have been taking Nexium for about 12 years and most of the time, I felt okay. A little gassy and bloated, but I thought at 61 years old, that was to be
But once or twice a year I had a "break through" with heartburn so bad I thought it would burn a hole in my chest. The doctors gave me more Nexium and some other stuff to close the pyloric sphincter and some fiber pills to move things along. Absolutely no relief.
One weekend I was in so much pain, I thought I would check out the internet for diets to control this acid or put out the fire and came across your web site. Thank God for
It actually took about 6 days to get things straightened out, but it was such a relief. My bloating is gone. I can be among people in the evening again! The full blown heartburn is more like a pilot light now and gets better everyday.
I would struggle every afternoon at work, to stay awake. Now, I have no problem making it through the day. The recipes are fantastic. I love the carrot and cilantro soup. Yum.
I've messed up a couple of times, but got right back on track. It really is easy to follow and makes so much sense. One of my goals is to get rid of the hypertension meds.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I did notice quite a positive change in my energy level after just 2 days on your plan.
I have, as of three weeks ago, been said to be free of the Non-Hodgkins B-cell Lymphoma which I was diagnosed with 2 years ago. My energy level has never fully returned post chemotherapy and I as beginning to wonder if it ever would.
Thankfully, I have experienced no stomach pain or bowel disturbance since being on the regimen. More importantly, I have begun to realize enough energy to begin an exercise program, which really is something I have been looking forward to being able to accomplish. Thank you, and keep up the good work!

Hi, my wife and I, Anne and Ed are so excited about this simple way to improve our health.
Great Taste --- No Pain, and No Constipation. It is amazing, it works
I have been constipated; it seems like, f o r e v e r but after only 1 day of your plan, no constipation.
We have been eating by your guide for a week now; have 10 times the energy, the food TASTES GREAT.
We're Losing Weight, This Is Great!
Anne and Ed
Thanks for your emails.
I am so relieved that I have found something that works for my seemingly complex stomach. I was suffering from bloating caused by a range of food items, listlessness,
and lack of energy and irregular bowels.
Since I started the Great Taste No Pain program, the bloating has subsided and I have freedom from this perpetual discomfort. My energy levels are up and I can actually work enthusiastically for a whole day and then at the gym after work, still feeling good.
My bowels are regular like clockwork without any strain.
Many thanks to your program.
Thanks and greetings.
I am SO thankful for you and for your wisdom and advice. My doctor said that I have the worst case of acid reflux that he had ever seen. I am 62. I tried every prescription medication there was and finally had to take 2 a day of the strongest Nexium plus 2 of the strongest Tagamet twice a day with it. That soon stopped working and I had tried many meds while being in agony as nothing worked. I then took Carafate 4 times a day with the 2 Nexium. Dr. wanted me off the Carafate so I tried to go off 3 times and my esophagus would burn right away again.
Then I started on your plan, Great Taste No Pain and I am SO amazed. The first day I felt so much better. The second day I was on just one Nexium and Mylanta about 5 times a day. Now on my 4th day I am on one Nexium and no Mylanta.
I am just so totally amazed, as I had to previously eat just oatmeal with water (no milk, no butter) for 8 weeks and sleep sitting up for 6 weeks and was in agony almost all the
time at the times when no med. help me. I lost 40 pounds and ended up in the emergency room about passing out, nauseated, in pain and dehydrated.
I can never thank you enough for being there for all of us with this problem. I just wish everyone knew about you. The eating plan is so simple. It is wonderful to be pain free and medication or almost medication free.
I am hoping to be off the one Nexium a day soon. I am now 5'3' and 120 pounds and my blood pressure is down and I have much more energy and will keep at this weight with your book. You are doing such a wonderful thing for people and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. IT is so wonderful to feel "normal" again.
After the second day I began to feel much better. I especially noticed that after a meal, I am not feeling bloated and I do not have gas at all.
My energy rose and I do wake up feeling good and ready for the day. And great my skin looks brighter.
I thank you very much for all this improvement and your great job.
I didn't fit the profile......no heartburn, no acid reflux, no constipation, etc. But I had heard of combined eating and was curious. At first I just read your plan and put it aside. But my curiosity remained, so I finally decided to give it a go. You can imagine I was surprised to find that, even though I hadn't suffered from digestive problems, I began feeling better immediately.
I have noticed more energy and more restful sleep. As an added bonus, my 'tummy' is less obvious. These things I had thought were just part of aging turned out to be poor eating habits.
It is hard to describe how it feels to just feel better. There is a sense of physical well being that had been missing.
Encourage people who feel "OK" to give Great Taste No Pain a try. They might be as surprised and pleased as I have been.
Hello & thank you so much for putting Great Taste No Pain out and sharing it.
I had my gallbladder removed 20 years ago and things just kept getting worse as time went on. The doctors said my body would adjust in a couple of months.
A year later (19 years ago) I was diagnosed with IBS. I have been given countless pills over the years. It got so bad the last several years that I was almost housebound.
Never went out to dinner and I can tell you where every bathroom is located in each store in my town.
I had a colonoscopy several weeks ago and they said I had diverticulosis and wanted me to take more pills. I was already taking drugs for acid reflux.
I came home and spent all afternoon and into the evening on the internet doing research. I was determined to not take any more drugs and figure this out, as I was fed up with all the doctors telling me to do different things and not really having any answers.
I was almost ready to stop when I found your site. Your story was so similar to mine I ordered your plan immediately. I was feeling much better in two days. I stopped the reflux meds in two days.
I now enjoy the fruit I thought I could never eat and also, the salads. My energy is coming back daily. Your recipes are wonderful.
Thank you so much for giving me my life back.
I have finished nearly a week of Great Taste No Pain and I am amazed!
I have been on Prednisone for a form of arthritis for several months and the indigestion and weight gain were killing me--I gained 20 pounds :(
I am on a long list of meds but have been able to stop taking the Zantac 150 mg (2 x a day) and Zyrtec for allergies since being on your program. I also have lost 8 pounds in one week!
I hope to get off the Lipitor soon.
Thanks so much for teaching me a new way to eat for life! I feel so much better and have so much energy! I will turn 50 in September, but feel much younger!
