I probably spelled the person's name wrong - but my question is how long would I have to religiously follow this before I can find some relief? How many of you have tried or at least made the attempt to change your diet to less fat. I'm not sure how the diet incorporates fruit - I do juicing especially with apples and haven't had any issues. Although my throat is almost always scratchy and needs clearing so I don't know if it does anything or not. I'm just wondering how much longer this is going to go on - it's 4 months and counting. I'm willing to try it although I can't guarantee I won't pop an M&M chocolate covered peanut once in a while lol. Also I've pretty much given up coke and other soft drinks (which I LOVED) but will occasionally drink ginger ale and I drink Perrier and San Pellagrino water products (regular water makes me nauseated) - is the carbonation in the water products causing problems??

The diet is just not about fat.  you also have to stop eating acidic foods.
 
Its probably best if you get her book dropping acid.  It explains the whole diet theory in detail.
 
It also explains why u should be avoiding M&M and ginger ale.  I suggest you stop all problem foods, otherwise you can have LPR for years. 
 
LPR is already pretty difficult to resolve.  I have only read 3 people on this forum actually cure themselves.
 
if you do the diet correclty you will see improvement in 2 weeks to a month.

In the study linked on the thread of this topic, 19 out of 20 people improved within 2 weeks while following the induction phase, which is more strict. I find the maintenance diet to be very flexible.

I think over time we all cheat on diets, no one is perfect. You just can't afford to let loose and eat an entire cheesecake, for example.

I'm eager to get the book and get started on this - I'll do my best not to cheat but I sure hope that once in a while I can have a piece of chocolate cake or a chocolate milkshake from Chickfilet. One piece of cheesecake would be plenty for me. I'm really not that huge a sweet eater - if you let me choose between a salad bar and a dessert bar I'd take the salad bar hands down. I LOVE salads. I have 12 hens and I'd hate to have to give up eggs not that I eat that many. What was your experience with this diet - did you notice improvement within 2 weeks?

Kaylajane,
Yes, I saw definite improvements with this diet. The cough was GONE within 2 weeks. The throat clearing I now experience only occasionally.
