I've been getting some form of exercise every day, and going on walks several times a week. I am BASICALLY eating according to Heather's diet, but sometimes i get too much fat, or I get a tiny bit of dairy in there. I really consciously try to avoid dairy, but I find the fat is a little harder.

For example, I eat Becel Margarine. Not too much, but I do, and if I have more than 1 tsp, I have pain. I love peanut butter and have it maybe 1x every 2 weeks... but I do. And it HURTS to no end, both for the GERD and the IBS.

I cannot totally give up chocolate, but I have it so seldom that it's not an issue.

Caffeine, i just can't quit. I have come so far-my 3 coffee MUGS a day has been brought down to 1, maybe 2 Chai tea a day. 3 sips of coffee spins my head. It's a 75% reduction in actual consumed caffeine.

Alcohol, I have one or 2 drinks on a weekend. that's it. not a big pain for me as long as I keep it moderate.

I'm AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL for drinking water though. Unless I keep it beside me and full at all times, i don't drink but for maybe 1 cup a day. Literally. So lately I've been having my metamucil in glasses of water and smoothies too, and I do the best I can at carrying water bottles everywhere with me.


I'm still working on the small meals. It's much easier when I'm teaching, but it's getting to summertime, and I won't have the natural breaks in my day. I'm trying.

But I think I do have the odd issue with eating-where I eat a bit too much-seldom to the point of STUFFED...but maybe I'm not being careful enough with my sugar intake?
I should be losing, and this diet is doing wonders for the IBS, and i have very very little pain, and bloating and am REGULAR!!! but I'm not losing weight. that's still my biggest goal.

Keep on keepin' on...
