Could somebody please tell me if there is anything sweet and yummy I could eat????? I have been doing really well lately and decided to treat myself to a bit of chocolate........BIG mistake!!! I'm in acid agony today and it just wasn't worth it. If I'd known what it would do,It wouldn't have gone near my lips.

I do know that liquorice is okay but you can only eat so much. I just want something sweet that Isn't gonna give me terrible pains.......Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.


Cheers

Loz-
Instead of chocolate try some vanilla cake. What type of chocolate did you try? I like dark chocolate and in small amounts it never used to bother me prior to my nissen. I can eat any chocolate now, but still prefer dark chocolate. I am not sure what kind of fruit you like, but we are getting very good peaches, plums, and nectarines right now. Maybe some type of a fruit pie, cake, or icecream.

Take care,
Bill

hi lozzy

i got a good case of LPR goin on so i got to be careful

but....every life needs some light...so

ive had good luck with small quantities of carob, and i imagine chocolate while i eat it !

ive also been known to spread a little honey on gluten free toast (im gluten intolerant)

my darling wife grows all manner of berries which i float in a modest amount of whole milk (tastes like cream to me since i usually only drink non fat milk!)...must remember to take lactase pills

I'm ok with home made wheat and dairy free flapjack. That's when the mudmagnets themselves leave me some!!

PS You can make it gluten free by using barley or millet flakes

I enjoyed sliced peaches.. they are so good..if you cannot handle that yet, have you tried pudding and Joy's suggestion of cheesecake.. just remember to chew chew chew and try a small amount to see how it sets with you.

I hope you find something you like and can eat.. nothing is worse than wanting something sweet and not getting it.

I'm struck here with the high fat content of many of these suggestions (baked goods and cheesecake). There are numerous fat-free hard candies available.

Peaches with vanilla yogurt are very good, though they are both acidic. I would balance that by eating a banana.

You have to watch the sugar content of "fat free" goods - they often have a high sugar content.

I thought we were discussing "treats" - that for me is something definitely not daily, may be once or twice a week. Unless you are following a specific diet such as post surgical, weight reducing, diabetic, cholesterol reducing or trying the Kaufman diet, there is no reason to restrict foods with a high fat content which are only consumed occasionally, unless you know they provoke symptoms.

Also some people are better if their stomach empties quickly, in which case fat doesn't help. But for me, giving my stomach something to do for a couple of hours gives me far less symptoms than keeping it empty.

Sunbeam, on the Kaufman diet are you getting essential fatty acids, omega 3 and omega 6? You can answer me on the other thread if you like - have run out of time to start a new message now!!

I get Publix lowfat vanilla frozen yogurt (only 1.5 grams of fat per serving) and drizzle over a spoonful of fat free caramel ice cream topping. Yum! Or I go to a frozen yogurt shop. I wasn't able to eat dairy until I had been on Nexium for 6 weeks. Now I can drink skim milk and have lowfat frozen yogurt with no problems.

Thank you so much for all the ideas you have given me. I will definately try the vanilla cake and cheesecake, that's sounds great!!! I've only had this for about 4 months now and really miss my chocolate. I do prefer milk, but not with nuts or biscuit just plain choccie. I don't know how or why I got this miserable disease but I hope that one day I'll be able to eat freely again. Once again thank you all for your help, I'm writing my shopping list out now.....Lol
