Yeah...gerd. I think it is a new 'trendy' ailment that big pharma companies are trying to sell expensive drugs to cure.

I don't buy it. Mostly fat and out-of-shape people think they have 'gerd.' Or pregnant. Are you pregnant? Just cut back on the alcohol and fried foods and you'll be fine. The older I get, the more important a healthy diet becomes.

That happens to me a lot lately if I go to sleep right after eating, esp, if I lie down on my left (stomach) side. Not good. But doesn't affect my waking hours at all really - except its causing irritation in my esophagus...
I agree w Chi on the healthy diet, for sure. But I probably eat a healthier diet than most (modest understatement) and it still happens to me.

Heartburn can be caused by exercising too soon after eating.

Gerd is a term generally used for chronic heartburn.

Yep I had leftover pizza for breakfast before running.

Leftover pizza? From how long ago?

I haven't had a pizza more than once or twice this year. And only unwillingly when dining with friends. Pizzas are not part of a 'healthy diet,' that emphasizes fresh fruits and vegetables, steamed or baked chicken or fish, and dry breads and carbos, all without butter, dressings or oils.

No sauces, cheeses, gravies, beef, pork, sausages, pepperonis, dairy or desserts. Now that you're over 60, you gotta stop living to eat...and just eat to live. It is an adjustment we all have to make, sooner or later. Cutting out all that stuff has certainly made a difference in how I feel. Perhaps you'd notice the same effect.

Pizza has all four food groups.....meat, cheese, tomato sauce{ the veg} and bread
Ok bad breakfast choice, and wont let that happen again.

Milwaukee has a nice pizza place that has jazz music every Tuesday. Hmmm, will have a salad too.

ok, here's a plug for home cooking - restaurants you basically dont know what you are getting. have you read how the big fast food chains are cleaning up their act, getting rid of mystery additives and raising animals more humanely? ok, great, but scary how much 'cleaning up' there is to do. A lot of restaurants just depend on whatever the Sysco truck happens to drop off that week...

Ha or Gordon foods...
My home area in the future will become part of the I-94 corridor that Paris Township has sold us out cause we are close to the freeway. Yep preserve themselves and sell us out. No farmland because the farmers want big bucks for their property they have been farming and holding on to hoping for the big payday. All I have to say it won't stop me from enjoy the last 30 years we have had with country livin. We will just turn this place into a environmental type cat/dog shelter anyway.

I try to say away from restaurants that are chains if I can. Hopefully they will clean up if they want to stay in biz.

The pizza and salad were good as well as the Jazz at my fav Milwaukee pizza place.

More pizza? Another gerd attack?

And iceberg lettuce salads aren't so good either...crystallized slime! No vitamins or fibre. Ever see the bottom of your veg cooler after lettuce had been in there several days? The lettuce turns into black slime! It does the same thing in your stomach!

Better to forget the salads...and go directly to kale, steamed broccoli, green beans, collards..... With all that nice property you have, why not start a garden, like MB or walk? Begin to appreciate where your food comes from, and cut out those lyin' thievin' middlemen!

A large helping of oatmeal every morning keeps my stomach acids working so that they don't bother me. To make it interesting, add raisins, blueberries, apples bananas and chopped walnuts, then top it with plain yoghurt. Rolled oats cooked about 15 minutes are great, but even yummier are steel-cut oats soaked overnight before cooking. Hey, it is the old Dr. Bircher's Swiss recipe - it does wonders.

Ok new program that will use oatmeal. No sugar or sweets, no white bread of any kind, no sodas or sugar drinks (includes Gatorade types), no coffee and no greasy or processed meats. Hmm that was easy.

We had a nice garden and will be much bigger next summer.
