I noticed today that after a breakfast that was all protein I felt great and after a lunch of carbs I became symptomatic. Can someone explain to me why I do well on protein?

Should I be making most of my diet protein?

Look at the Fast Track Diet thread. On reading the book ,it has a lot of animal protein and low carb veggies as helping reflux symptoms. The book sounds so hopeful. It is worth reading.

some people have reported that a low carb diet works better for them.The reasoning is that carbs are harder to brak down and thus require more acid to do so. I am able to tolerate gluten free carbs such as brown rice products (pasta, pretzels, english muffins) and potatoes. Wheat has a fatty protein called gluten that is very hard to digest leading to increased acid production. Lean protein should make up a lot of your diet. The stomach can digest protein well as long as it is not fatty.

I try to eat whole grains and gluten free as much as possible. It just struck me as strange that i felt sooooo good and then was coughing my head off. I bought London Broil, Salmon Steak, shrimp, very lean ground turkey, tofu etc. what I'll season with I have no idea yet.

I just don't feel great on all that protein I usually crave carbs but I guess this is the new normal and I have to adjust. So funny I would think protein would be harder to digest!

Tonight i'm having Chirashi (tuna sashimi on rice) I had to ask them to give me regular rice not sushi rice because of the vinegar. Miso soup and salad. I'll look at that thread thank you!!!
