I just been been diagnosed with GORD and I need to lose weight. I’ve been given 4 weeks of omaprazole and I’ve to go back for an endoscopy in 4 weeks and see how it’s going
The advice I got from the hospital is to eat little and often and avoid spicy and acidic foods. Oh, and to try to lose weight – which I definitely need to do!!
I want to try to manage this as far as possible by diet although I’ll take the medication for the four week period and see how I’m doing then. I’ve been looking at diets and eating plans til they’re coming out my ears! I think I prefer a Mediterranean/ low carb/anti inflammatory type approach which seems to fit with the low carb Mediterranean – the M plan on this website. I won’t be able to do any fasting as I’m told not to have long gaps between meals.
I’d be really grateful for any advice from anyone who has got any experience of doing the BSD with GORD and can give me some advise
