    This book is VERY repetitive. The first portion of the book was way too long and could have easily been cut down to a 1/4 of the size it was. I felt like I was reading something that was geared towards twelve year olds understanding acid reflux. Every chapter was interspersed with the all consuming repetitious promise of eventually getting to the main ideas behind the acid reflux solution on the next page. It also read like what the author had to say about curing acid reflux could have fit into This book is VERY repetitive.

Every chapter was interspersed with the all consuming repetitious promise of eventually getting to the main ideas behind the acid reflux solution on the next page. It also read like what the author had to say about curing acid reflux could have fit into a one page bulleted piece of text. Other than that, the book is really informative and does give great insight into how to approach the diet with a lifestyle change. Throughout the book, I had many "a-ha!" moments where certain symptoms I had suddenly made sense. I just wish there wasn't so much fluff.

    This book has all the standard advice that people who've suffered acid reflux have no business not knowing. But, reading them all today in this book has inspired me to put them to practice. 1. Eat less, eat often, and space out the time between meals. 2. Eat unprocessed foods, and foods that are plenty in fiber. 3. Eat an assortment of lean meats, veggies, fruits, whole grains and nuts. (special nod to ginger and fennel) 4. Choose organic foods (including flours). 5. Avoid mint, caffeine, chocolate, This book has all the standard advice that people who've suffered acid reflux have no business not knowing.

Choose organic foods (including flours). 5. Avoid mint, caffeine, chocolate, fried-foods, saturated fat, alcohol, carbonated drinks and processed food (especially meat). (A glass of wine along with food is okay). 6. Limit but enjoy dairy products, preferably the low-fat options. 7. Listen to your stomach, and pay attention to your particular triggers. Also, don't give up on a foods commonly found in avoid-lists until you've tried them and found them to be bothersome. 8. Exercise regularly. Walk for 30 minutes after a meal. 9. Drink plenty of water or non-caffeinated herbal teas, but don't drink water (or any liquids) along with a meal. Wait at least 40 minutes after you drink to eat, and wait 40 minutes after you eat to drink! 10. Sleep three hours after your last meal! Dr. Rodriguez advices going to a doctor and nutritionist to get tested, to get the right medication (with the intention of going off it completely) and to learn how to eat healthy and watch for deficiencies! The information about GERD in Part 1 and the recipes in Part 2 were mostly tailored to people with obesity, whereas not everyone with GERD is obese! I also wish the recipes were organized by meal-plan (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)... instead of by course (Appetizer, Soups, Salads, Desserts etc). Moreover each recipe serves 4–6 people, which is not helpful for individuals who want to understand portion control and how to combine different meals (like an appetizer, main course and dessert! Is that even allowed? Or are we to have only one course at a time?). The recipes also don't help me understand how to apply the rules to other recipes that are not in the book, especially since his recipes have many of the ingredients that he said were not okay to have. (Eg: Grass-fed Beef and Portobello Blue Cheese Burgers and Cocoa Meringues!).

    Quit at p.59. That's the end of the text part; the rest is recipes. Dr. Rodriguez has some different ideas about avoiding certain foods, namely only if you're having a reflux attack. However, I just found I have Barret's esophagus, so my reflux has been much worse than I realized. How am I supposed to avoid my trigger foods if I don't realize I'm having an attack? Some of his information is repetitive but still helpful. Some of the recipes look interesting, so I'll show them to hubby dear and se Quit at p.59.

    while the content may be correct--he repeats himself over and over and over...adding one new bit about his own story...so he can call it another chapter.....the book part of the book could have been summed up in about 900 words...and all of us who suffer from acid reflux and who are looking for help would be better off....he just drones on and on... buy the book for the recipes...and goggle acid reflux ...read any short explanation of the issue..and you will know as much as this guy tells you for while the content may be correct--he repeats himself over and over and over...adding one new bit about his own story...so he can call it another chapter.....the book part of the book could have been summed up in about 900 words...and all of us who suffer from acid reflux and who are looking for help would be better off....he just drones on and on... buy the book for the recipes...and goggle acid reflux ...read any short explanation of the issue..and you will know as much as this guy tells you for a lot less money and you won't have to read all about him...

    I liked that this cookbook was written by a doctor who specializes in GERD and was open and honest about what doctors typically do (prescribe medication) and what is a much better idea (treating GERD with diet modifications first and only using medication temporarily to alleviate symptoms while the patient is making lifestyle changes). I think this is a good overview of a diet to alleviate acid reflux, especially for people who are taking antacids regularly. However, this diet didn't quite sync I liked that this cookbook was written by a doctor who specializes in GERD and was open and honest about what doctors typically do (prescribe medication) and what is a much better idea (treating GERD with diet modifications first and only using medication temporarily to alleviate symptoms while the patient is making lifestyle changes). I think this is a good overview of a diet to alleviate acid reflux, especially for people who are taking antacids regularly. However, this diet didn't quite sync with me because I've been reading a lot about the Paleo and Whole30 diets which eliminate grains, legumes, and dairy. This book has dairy throughout (most recipes) and emphasizes lower-fat dairy and eating less red meat because of the saturated fat. Later in the book, in the text above some of the recipes, the author mentions grass-fed beef as a better alternative to traditional ground beef. I feel that this information should have been in the initial pages describing the diet. Many of the recipes felt a little complicated to me, but I am a 5-ingredient, throw-everything-into-a-slow-cooker kind of cook. The author distinguishes between trigger foods that are scientifically proven to loosen up the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) and acidic foods, but I feel like he doesn't explain this fully. He essentially recommends eliminating trigger foods and only limiting the quantity of acidic foods. Later on, he mentions that garlic and onions could be a problem, but they are in many of the recipes in small quantities that he says should be okay. I feel like he should have elaborated a lot more on this part, which foods may be a problem even though they are acidic foods and don't technically trigger the LES to relax. He also says that people know what foods trigger reflux in them, which I disagree with. Sometimes, it's hard to put my finger on what exactly is giving me reflux hours later. Overall, I appreciated the author sharing his own story throughout the book and explaining the various medications and solutions that are available from a medical perspective if this diet doesn't work.

    I read this for my health and found it very interesting and helpful. The recipes are a little more permissive that I can be when suffering from Acid Reflux symptoms, and they don't take into account my more vegan lifestyle, but I think there are still good recipes that I will use once I get my symptoms under control and want to maintain a healthy esophagus.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I have been recently diagnosed with acid reflux, hernia and an ulcer, I was just interested in reading what I can/can't eat. It didn't really give me more information than I already knew but it did give me some recipes.

    This book gives good advice and without drastically limiting yourself (which I always found too hard). The majority of the book is recipes. I'm going to try a few but I wasn't impressed with the selection. Many fish which I don't eat.

    I don't have acid reflux so my experience reading this book will obviously not be the same as for people that do have it. The first part of the book has some description of the disorder and some tips on lifestyle changes you can make to help ease the symptoms. The second part is recipes. While the first part was interesting, the second part was a little weird to me - most recipes had lots of spices and ingredients, though the methods didnt seem too difficult.

    3.5 stars, rounding up I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, so I can't comment on that. I did like the first half of the book with the explanations of reflux and the importance of the diet. Lots of good, straight-forward information about GERD is included as well as information about the different methods of treatment. I also like that the emphasis is not on deprivation but on small ways to modify and improve living with GERD (the biggest of which is diet!).

    I have never suffered through acid reflux until about 10 dayas ago, with a sudden and painful onset. I checked out this library book about 5 days in so I was following many of the tips Dr. Rodriguez mentioned in the book, but what I found so appealing about this book was the cookbook portion which is the latter 2/3 of the text. The photos make the meals look especially appealing. We haven't yet made any of the recipes but we bought ingredients for several of them yesterday, so I may update this I have never suffered through acid reflux until about 10 dayas ago, with a sudden and painful onset.

    Gives a good, clear explanation of what causes acid reflux, and presents an easy solution for those (like me) who suffer from it. In addition to the diet and exercise recommendations, there are about ten quick, easy things you can do right off the bat to decrease the episodes (including elevating the head of your bed). But the lion's share of the book is a cookbook full of tasty-looking recipes. Just wish they'd had more pictures of the dishes!

    Decent overview, but the author gets weird about GMOs. The first 50 pages are about acid reflux, mechanics of it and dietary and lifestyle changes you can make. The recipes seem like they’re mostly to bulk out the book, and harvested from other cookbooks in some cases. If you can read and follow the directions in the first 50 pages (portion control, considering the universal trigger foods plus finding your own triggers) you can go back to your family recipes and work off them pretty easily.

    This book is about obviously acid-reflux as the title says. I'm not sure I really learned anything new except it did explain some things better. It gives you a few tips on what to eat, some explainations of different medicines, allergies, etc. There is about 60 pages of explainations and then the rest is recipes.

    Some good suggestions for those suffering with reflux. I would have liked a little more detailed example of the foods to eat and not to eat. The recipes looked good but many have more ingredients that I am willing to deal with in making a meal but would love some of them if someone else was doing the cooking! I do plan to try a few of them.

    Excellent book with sound medical advice. The author is a gastroenterologist which means the book is based on real research (no "woo" as is too often found in any resource claiming natural healing). The only criticism I have is that the recipes are pretty complicated. They do give a good idea of what to eat, though, and probably can be simplified.

    This is a very good guide for those suffering from acid reflux and/or GERD. I have a better understanding of why my doctor said to not drink caffeinated or carbonated beverages, coffee, or eat chocolate. I have started following the lifestyle mentioned in the book. I now know what the medication does and I will try to wean myself off of it, and am losing weight in the process.

    The first 60 pages were about acid reflux and how to prevent it. It was very clear and easy to understand. The rest of the book contained recipes. Unfortunately, none of the recipes were anything I would be willing to eat.
