I decided to review this book for purely personal reasons. I have acid reflux so I thought let's see if this works. I began the diet and I must say I found it to be a bit restrictive. Much of my diet seems to be acid based which is helping to cause the acid reflux. So to find something I could eat was challenging. On more than one occasion I slipped on this diet. For me it was very difficult to skip caffeine and cows milk but I gave it my best try.
The book does have recipes that you can make but I found many of them to have ingredients that I was unfamiliar with. I also knew that most of the things I could eat the rest of my family would not be interested in. So I ended up spending more for groceries and/or cooking twice. But, maybe it would be worth it.
I have been on the diet for 1 month now and I believe it has helped to heal the damage already done. I noticed that when I had something with acid ( a piece of pizza) it burned as I swallowed it. So it remains to be seen if I can gradually add some of the forbidden foods back into my diet and not again have reflux. I am hopeful.
So, overall I would say this is something that you should definitely look at if you have GERD/Acid reflux. If this can help you without resorting to medications that is a huge plus. I have struggled with it but know that it has helped. Give it a try!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
