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.
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.
The first thing I noticed after beginning to combine my foods properly was sleeping better. My sleep was deeper and more restful and I wasn't bothered with the usual acid reflux. My husband said that my chronic snoring problem was also improved. We first noticed these things within 48 hours with gradual improvement over the next 10 days.
Two days ago, I got a little careless in what I ate and noticed that my sleep was immediately more disturbed because my stomach was feeling a bit uneasy--whereas before I actually forgot I even had a stomach and never even thought about it. So now,
I am again more careful. Thanks for all the good advice.
I'm only 2 days into your program and am feeling really good. I have to say I am a bit surprised.
I did not have stomach pains--I purchased the program because I do need to lose some weight. And I have been told by my doctor that I need to go on cholesterol meds and
do not want to be taking those for the rest of my life.
All of the years of me thinking I was eating fairly well were very wrong. By the second day of eating this way, my energy level had increased and my bowel movements had
become more frequent.
I was thinking about ordering one of those products they have been advertising like crazy on TV lately to clean your colon. I no longer think I need to do that.
I am sleeping better than I have in years I have even been waking up before my alarm rings in the morning and do not feel like I need a nap by 10:00 AM.
I have had such a shift of sustained energy from the 4 day plan. In the 1st day and a half, I was skeptical.
My energy has completely shifted and I have been nicknamed the ever ready bunny by friends and family!!! This is quite a change from last week before I began the plan. I was becoming the Queen of the 15 minute power nap....
The 5 lbs I have dropped effortlessly is an added bonus, but the greatest gift of all is that
I DO NOT have any acid reflux that took me by surprise when I would lie down. The burping and pain in my throat is gone. The most incredible thing happens - I sleep soundly. As if I was a kid without any cares or worries in the world!! And when I wake up I am not reaching for tissue to blow my runny nose!
I haven't needed to take any antacids, and aspirin/ibuprofen for queasy stomachaches and headaches. I only wish I had discovered these years ago I feel wonderful and happier - it is quite a delightful to feel this fabulous and a radically DIFFERENT & fast result from such simple effortless changes!!
Thank You Thank You Thank You for sharing this wonderful information!!!
It is so simple - I am happily astounded. Thanks so much -
I began your program while I was recovering from a small bout of food poisoning. I didn't experience any more symptoms once I was on your eating plan. In the four days that I tried it, I felt that I was sleeping better, had no between meal hunger and I lost 2.5 pounds. The third morning I woke up feeling more refreshed than usual, no doubt from a better night's sleep. My favorite recipes on the program were the Carrot & Cilantro Soup and the Asparagus with Pine Nuts & Balsamic Vinegar.
