Husband Gives the Cold Hard Truth
Yeah, my weight and belly had gotten way out of hand despite my exercise. My husband gave me what-for and told me I needed to eat less and only eat certain foods.
How did this subject come up? Despite being on daily Omeprazole I was getting heartburn in the afternoon and night again. Ew! How serious things were getting if I was getting heartburn even with the heavy duty antacids. I didn’t think that was even possible.
So now I’m on a very strict diet to get my appetite and stomach acid under control.
Since I don’t know what all will trigger me, I’m sticking to the most basic foods I already know are safe.
- protein smoothie
- oatmeal w/granola
- salmon (but only with other food, preferably smoothie)
- miso soup (except with denjang which is really the same thing but denjang is made in South Korea and miso is made in Japan)
- various veggies (mushrooms, carrots, green beans, black olives, peas)
- eggs (scrambled and mixed with lots of other food)
- ground turkey
- barley tea
Yeah, mostly it’s just oatmeal for breakfast, smoothie and fish for lunch, and miso soup with whatever rice-thing is available for dinner. Coffee for morning snack (yeah, I know this can give heartburn but I currently don’t want to live without it). Banana for afternoon snack if I get hungry.
I know for healthy eating reasons I should have a snack after dinner if I get hungry, but eating after 6pm gives me heartburn so I’m sticking with barley tea for my evening “snack.”
So far it’s worked wonders. After 3 days I’ve lost weight and kept my appetite under control. It’s not a gross diet and I’m never really hungry either! Until near meal time of course.
(Side Note: Watching George of the Jungle. Can I just say something? Young Brendan Frasier? Wearing loincloth throughout almost the whole movie? OH. MY. GOD! Even wearing loose suit clothes. OH. MY. GOD! This does not mean I’m not a fan of present-day Brendan Frasier. I have always been a big fan. He’s HOT!)
What do you do to keep heartburn away?
