Hi all. I need to lose weight! I could do with the support and advice. I have a hiatus hernia and reflux and I don’t know if it’s ok to fast or do 16:8 with this as the advice I got from the hospital was to eat smaller frequent meals and not miss meals
8 weeks ago I had an endoscopy that showed an inflamed oesophagus and an oesophageal ulcer. I had another endoscopy a few weeks ago and the ulcer and inflammation had healed!! I think it was due to a combination of taking Omeprazole and I’d changed my eating to a BSD Mediterranean style diet with a bit of clever guts as well. I didn’t lose much weight as I was focusing on trying to get myself well and healthier by keeping to a Mediterranean type diet without any fasting
I’m at the stage now of being off the pills – I’ve still got a hiatus hernia and the reflux, and I need to lose some weight to keep my symptoms at bay as excess weight is a big trigger. What do people advise?
