Acid Reflux

Started this discussion. Last reply by Mack Ronaldo Aug 31, 2014. 7 Replies

I was diagnosed with acid reflux a month ago.  I've noticed coughing, hoarseness, sore throat, burping, hick-ups and sensitivity to spicy foods.  My doctor offered me drugs, antacids and pain pills. …Continue

Profile Information

Our community would be delighted to know you better. Please tell us more about yourself and what brought you to 30BaD. Detailed responses will only be accepted (feel free to reapply with more detail if at first not approved as a member). We suggest you pick a name other than your own if you want to maintain anonymity.
I am 70 y/o and I'm beginning to suffer some obesity-related, chronic, degenerative diseases. I live alone in a one-bedroom apartment. I'm retired and I live in poverty, on social security.
My hobby is eating, because I can't afford many expensive activities. My favorite foods are pizza, ice cream, BBQ, Chinese, Korean, brownies, muffins, cookies and milk.
I also have a drinking problem. I've switched from beer to wine--because it's healthier! However, I've started attending Alcoholics Anonymous and my current sobriety date is 7/24/14.
I'm not computer literate. I've just purchased a pair of walking shoes, a bicycle and a Y membership, and I've tried some diets. I can lose 10 lbs and gain it back, but I can't lose it and keep it off.
I'm planning to try some Buddhist meditations next month and I'm looking for another interest besides eating. I'm also thinking of getting a dog. I'm tired of reading.

Cheating? Chipping? What caused it?

Posted on August 11, 2014 at 9:09am 0 Comments

Hey Nick,  6'7" at 200 lbs sounds about right.  I would trade with you.  I'm 5'9" at 200 lbs.  Big difference!  I've lost 2 lbs in 3 days, but it could be just water weight.  I think I should weigh 150 lbs. and I'll be satisfied if I could do that in a year!

What caused the relapse?  Wrong environment?  No support?  Job pressure?  Were you "chipping and cheating, just a little bit" before the slip?  I think not having relapses is the secret to success.  Having to do this over, and…

Thx Caveivore,  It is hard at first!  Last night I was having thoughts about ice cream and cake, cookies and milk, even a pizza and a bottle of wine!  It was so bad I was on the way to the store when I decided to have a fruit binge instead of a sugar binge.  I bought grapes and froze them; apples, bananas, blueberries and blended them into a sorbet; apricots, pluots and oranges...and a watermelon.  Today I went for a bike ride and picked wild…


Australopithicus Africanses Diet

Posted on August 9, 2014 at 4:58am 1 Comment

Australopithicus Africanses was the first primate to climb down from the trees and walk on his hind legs.  S/he ate leaves and fruit.  Gorillas and chimpanzees still eat this way today.  My health problems make me think that perhaps I should also eat in a "more natural way."

Today is Day One.  I weigh 200 lbs.  People say I don't look like I need to lose weight, but I have a number of obesity-related, chronic, degenerative diseases that…
