I've been on your plan for about a month now. I've seen so many changes, I have to list them out. First of all, of course, my diverticulitis went away and fast. I also lost a few pounds right away, which was nice. Then I noticed my sleep improving. This is HUGE,
as I have had practically lethal insomnia, especially over the past year, including a three-month period with no sleep at all, then three months on sleeping pills. Now I fall asleep naturally within a few minutes and wake up only once or twice all night. I can't tell you
what it means to me.
Next: one of the things keeping me up at night was joint pain in one knee and one hip. To control the pain, I had been sleeping (for a few years) on my side with a large pillow lodged between my legs from knee to ankle to keep my legs parallel. No more: pills gone, pillow gone! I still have stiffness in my joints, but it is improving. I had thought that joint replacements were a sure thing one day, but now I think I might not need them. Another chronic for me was constipation (that's why I have diverticulosis). I see improvement in this every day that I'm on your diet plan. Gee I'm really going to miss plugging toilets everywhere I go (my husband says I hold the world's record). Moving right along, I have seen an improvement in my libido! Wahoo! And the hot flashes I have put up with for 10 years are subsiding, as well. It occurs to me that for a 60-year-old I sure was putting up with a lot of health issues! One thing I do not want as I approach retirement is to end up like my mom (age 93), who is on 13 meds a day for this and that. So finally, thank you for changing my outlook. This diet gives me pleasure, energy, rest, and most of all, confidence that I know how to take care of myself.
Thanks again, Sherry. I am telling everybody I know.
Thank you for your advice. I successfully completed your plan and have much less pain in my stomach. I stopped my medicine also. I can sleep now and am feeling well. I am very happy as well. May god bless you always.
Having had 4 diverticulitis attacks in the past 2 years with 3 of them occurring within the past month, I went for a CAT scan a few days ago. I am still awaiting results. Not wanting to wait any longer, I found your web site and many others as well. I needed some help with this and my doctor, who is a very good doctor, said just to stay away from certain foods such as nuts, corn, and certain other vegetables. He said that this would help. That seemed to be all he knew. I read your entire web site since I was sort of desperate to find out as much as possible. I just could not believe that with all the advancements in medicine that nothing was able to be done.
A week prior to the CAT scan, I thought I would try the Great Taste No Pain plan. I usually do not order products when I first read about them since I know that everyone wants to sell something and we do not know just what is real and what is fake. I followed the first 4 days of your plan and was 100% free from any discomfort whatsoever. I marveled at this. 100% in one day. How was that possible? Well the change from my regular diet did the trick. I haven't taken any gas relief pills since that first day of the diet. I thought that dieting would be difficult. Not so. I shop differently and eat differently. I am enjoying my meals very much and even enjoy shopping for different things.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I feel 10 years younger.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Great Taste No Pain probably saved me from being on medication for the rest of my life.
I was diagnosed with Acid Reflux in January of 2009. The Dr. kept giving me one medication after another and nothing was helping. I was heading for medication number five when I decided to do my own research on what was causing all this acid to be produced when I thought I was eating very healthy (Weight Watchers). After the first day on your diet, I immediately felt better! I am on no medication now and I am dropping weight without trying! I am 62 years old and life is good!
I had reflux for many years the doctor prescribed me Pariet. About 2 months ago the tablets stopped working, I was then prescribed Nexium 40, which seem to make my symptoms worse. One night the burning was so intense I thought I was going to die, I was unable to eat anything, even a glass of water burned my colon, I decided to see a different Doctor and he told me I did not have acid reflux but perhaps diverticulitis and prescribed Colese. CT scan came back negative, but still the burning continued.
I decided to find as much information as I could from the internet, that’s when I came across your web site, Great Taste No Pain…........THANK GOD I DID.
I have been following your advice and what a relief to feel normal again, I have not had any medication since and have lost weight.
Thank you, I feel I have my life back on track.
In July of 2008 I began your program as a result of being told I had Diverticulosis that showed up in my age of 60 Colonoscopy test. I have never had any painful problems. At my request had an Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) done at the same time because I was having trouble swallowing and still had heartburn issues. For three years I have complained and never received anything more than Prilosec and Tums which I took sparingly because I do not like taking medicine. After the test results I was diagnosed with Esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus) and given a prescription for Pantoprazole Sod for the rest of my life. I also had an esophageal stricture they fixed which was causing the swallowing problem. I had no idea I was in such a mess other than the heartburn for years. Add to this a Hiatal hernia and you can see why I was having difficulties!
I went on line to educate myself on these issues and found your Great Taste No Pain program. I ordered it and began my road to healing. I have no heartburn, and have quit taking the pills. Since I have never had any Diverticulosis problems, I know that I am also healing there.
Best of all, I have now discarded all of my size 10 clothing as the 23 pound weight loss has me in a size 6. The other benefit of losing the weight at this age is that I no longer have all of the creases in my upper lip that were beginning to bother me. My Dermatologist was suggesting a procedure to take care of the creases.....never a word about losing weight to take care of the problem. People have told me that I look so much younger around my mouth, so it really is noticeable. Most importantly is the vast amount of energy that I now have. I am truly a different individual because of your plan. I am a great marketer for you as I tell all of my friends and family about Great Taste No Pain. Thank you for being on line and educating me about how to heal my body through proper eating.
I ordered your Great Taste No Pain system, and it was the best purchase I made in years... I have been suffering with Heartburn and acid reflux for many years, and the last 8 months have been terrible for me. I too was on pills and antacids for the burning in my stomach and throat (it was always on fire). I just want to tell you I have been following your plan and recipes for the past two weeks....NO PAIN AND NO HEARTBURN AND NO PILLS! I have not taken any of my pills, and I was on Ranitidine 150 MG twice a day, since I started your plan.
I can't believe it but it works, it truly does. I am so thrilled I found you. I never would have thought it was the way I was eating. I was never told by my Doctor to watch what I ate, he just kept on giving me pills. Thank you so much for all you do, for everyone that has helped me more. You have helped me more than you'll ever know. By the way I lost 7 pounds and I am still eating lots of food, but now it's the right food...
Thank you again!
I have been using the pain-free diet, and here's my story. I have had minor chest discomfort for about 5 years. I had a couple of stress tests that showed nothing. Finally, last month, a cardiologist ran another whole batch of tests, and he found I had mitral-valve prolapse, apparently a minor problem. Nonetheless, he prescribed a beta blocker to be taken daily. I had previously had GERD, but I had managed it pretty well with my own healthy diet, but this beta-blocker sent me spiraling back into GERD. I started using your diet (and stopped taking the beta blocker), and it went away in a day. I lead a healthy life style and eat healthy foods (mostly vegetarian), but I wasn't aware of the importance of which foods you eat together.
So thanks so much.
I started the ‘Pain Free Meal Plan’ one week ago. It is a miracle. No urgency, no loose BMs, no constipation, no severe stomach aches, no medications, no more running to the bathroom, embarrassed. No more missing planned social affairs and cancelling appointments due to illness. I have IBD, colitis, spastic colon and a possible ulcer. I am also a survivor of colon cancer in 1978. Since then when they removed a good portion of my intestines. I have had nothing but grief. Until last week when I found you on the internet and now a new world has opened up for me. Thanks so much for being the great human being that you are and having compassion for others to share your knowledge with them.
Thank you again
I really got going on your plan at the urging of my wife. I wanted her to try it first, and she is doing GREAT! NO MORE PREVACID. She stuck to your plan and lost eight pounds in just two weeks, so I said ‘Why not, I will try it too’. My wife is looking GOOD!
