I have been on your Great Taste No Pain program for almost a week now. I have noticed great relief from the bloating and fluctuations. I also feel better and have more energy. I have been able to greatly reduce my dependence on Zegerid for my GERD, hiatal hernia and gastritis.
Your system is amazing! Really, I have been dealing with IBS for 20 years
and I finally feel like I have hope for a somewhat normal life. Last winter after going to the doctor and finding out I was pretty constipated I started taking Miralax regularly. This helped me for awhile then I would get bouts of having to go to the bathroom too much so I tried cutting back on that and then started my problem all over again.
After trying your Great Taste No Pain program for the last week I have been regular and haven't had the gas and bloating that my IBS has been causing for so long. I really hope this will continue for me. So far, so good!
Thank you for the hope that I feel.
I am only in my third day of your Great Taste No Pain plan and want to say Thank you, thank you, thank you.
For over two months I did not know what was wrong with me. I did look as though I swallowed a basket ball and could not button my pants. I gained an inordinately amount of weight which I could not lose, even on a three day fast. Every time I ate, my stomach swelled to look as though I was six months pregnant.
In the last three days I have dropped three of the seven pounds I gained since my discomfort.
Best to You,
I have been using your books and recipes for the past 4 weeks and see a big result in the inches around my waist and a big reduction in bloating. I've also stopped being constipated.
Thank you for all of your great information.
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over it became a butterfly.
I want to tell you that I feel like you have been a GOD SENT to me and that my prayers have been answered. I am following your Great Taste No Pain plan for a few days and I have been heartburn free and I haven't had any bloating or gas.
So I feel like it is really going to work for me.
I have had Crohnís Disease for several years and have been put on steroids during flare-ups. I have to take 4-8 pills daily (Pentasa) for maintenance. However, Iíve been struggling, as the daily medication has not been helping to control my bloating and discomfort.
I found your Great Taste No Pain plan and decided to try it. That was 5 days ago and I have NOT had any swelling/bloating/discomfort since the very first day! I also have not taken my daily medication since day 1. Iím totally sold on this meal plan! I have much more energy, no problems with bowel movements, and no discomfort from swelling/bloating.
I havenít felt this great in years! I am so happy (and relieved)!
I discovered and began using the Great Taste No Pain system about a week ago. I'm in my mid-50's. About two years ago, out of the blue, I developed an intestinal problem that was diagnosed as ulcerative colitis. I had the typical symptoms including some blood. I never get sick so this was a terrible shock to me. The medicine prescribed for UC, Lialda, seemed to work and I thought I was completely over it, never to see it again, but a
few months ago it returned with all its symptoms. I even found, for the first time in my life, I could not donate blood because my iron level was too low. I could not accept I had some disease for which the cause was unknown, that was affecting me this way and for which there was no cure. I didn't want to take more drugs for symptoms. I was determined to "fix" it.
I found your Great Taste No Pain plan researching on the Internet, read the information and testimonials and gave it a try.
Over the past week, I can't say I have achieved a miraculous change, but I have noticed significant improvement. I never experienced pain, but did have the bloating, gas, and other symptoms and have seen the pictures of my irritated and sometimes bleeding colon lining. Since beginning only a week ago, the bloating and gas have almost completely stopped, I visit the bathroom on an almost normal schedule and I am able to buckle my belt another notch tighter. I actually feel physically better. This is a rapid, very positive change. I am optimistic this program.
I don't know why I fell victim to this disease all of a sudden, but even if I never learn why it affected me, I believe I will be able to manage it on a permanent basis so it won't be an issue. Those who are not affected by bad food combinations are lucky -- at least for the moment. This system gives those of us who are a simple and a healthier lifestyle and even loose some weight and girth as a side benefit. This is a very logical, simple plan to follow and has every indication so far that it will work.
Sept 6, 2009, I went to bed suffering the most horrific pain in my stomach. I looked like I had swallowed a basketball, that's how big and hard my stomach was. Before, I went to bed I searched on the internet under Bloating. Of all the items I saw, I thought yours hit the nail on the head. I read it and decided to try it. After one day on your plan it seemed like a miracle happened to me. NO PAIN. The pain was gone! By the end of that week I weighed myself, and found that I had lost 5 lbs. My goal was to get rid of the PAIN. In the process, the 5 lbs. was a bonus I have been enjoying. I have been sleeping without the Tums and Omeprazole, and no more bloating. Oh yes, the gas has also disappeared. I feel so much better.
Thanks, Thanks, Thanks to you for all of your hard work.
Hi from Dee 'down under' in Australia. I accidentally stumbled across your
website (looking for articles on bloating/gas etc) and boy am I glad I did!
I have been on your Great Taste No Pain plan - and already I feel SO MUCH BETTER it is unbelievable!
I have tossed my Nexium, Zantac pills in the bin - and hope I never need to
use them again. I must confess I haven't stuck strictly to the plan (it is often difficult
when eating out) but despite a couple of diversions - I still feel a whole lot better, and my previous 'pregnant' stomach has all but disappeared.
I have always said the Pharmaceutical/Medical fraternity are intent on Ďband aid' solutions to all our health problems.
As some one very wisely once said "you are what you eat". It is a pity the drug companies make so much money, out of so much misery.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart. You are an inspiration to us all.
All the best
My husband was diagnosed with diverticulosis, something that has been bothering him for a long, long time. I knew nothing about this disease so decided to check to see what I could find online. It was just by chance that I came across your website and was impressed by what I read. Although I was reluctant to try your Great Taste No Pain plan we both started your plant on Monday.
After four days, he enjoyed the meals, lost 5 pounds plus the bloated feeling after each meal is gone. I'm anxious to see how he'll feel after another week.
