The Acid Watcher Diet
Jonathan Aviv, MD, FACS
This is the perfect book for those who suffer from acid reflux. It is also great for those who have silent symptoms of acid reflux, such as coughing, post nasal drip, sore throat, hoarseness or the feeling of a lump in the throat. This book will give you the knowledge to recognized the problem and the tools to start a 28 day diet plan that gets you on the right path to healing body and getting rid of acid reflux.
It is not only well written but, easy to follow. The diet is aimed to reduce your intake of caffeine found in coffee, tea and chocolate, alcohol, tobacco, citrus fruits and carbonated sodas. It also encourages the reduction of processed foods in the diet. I personally found it more helpful to look at what I could eat, rather than what I should avoid. I also found it more difficult to give up coffee, tomatoes and citrus fruits than I had anticipated. If, like me, you find that you just can't dispense with all your favorite foods at once, you can try, as I have, to lessen you intake of these and anything that might be your “trigger foods”.
The book also contains other useful tips like not eating three hours before going to bed and getting a good nights sleep as well as what types of exercise are good for eliminating acid reflux. All in all this book provides a good plan that isn't too difficult to follow and there are lots of recipes included which aim to make it easier to prepare the right food for healing.
