Welcome. I too had acid reflux. That was one of my first problems to go away when I switched to a McDougall style diet. http://anti-itisdiet.blogspot.com/2007/ ... ation.html
My particular diet is a very narrow subset of the McDougall regular diet; most people don't need to do what I did.
Based on what I have seen others experience and on my own experience, you should see the acid reflux go away within a few months. That is assuming you follow the diet 100% and do a little experimenting to decide which foods work best for you.
Suggestion: Start with ...
1. The McDougall Regular Diet.
The three other diets available on the McDougall Program are:
2. The Maximum Weight Loss Diet.
3. Mary's Mini Diet, a "kickstart" for rapid weight loss.
4. The Elimination Diet, a short-term diet rarely used, and for diagnostic purposes only; it is extremely bland and difficult to follow. It is valuable for finding foods that are causing allergic reactions.
Suggestion: After you study the program (http://www.drmcdougall.com/free.html
), post every meal here so that others may offer advice for alternatives or improvements.
