    Anyone get it? It's never been a problem for me until about a week ago, now I get it errday. WTF

    What causes this shit / what can I do (diet-wise, I don't want to be pounding pepto bismol every day)? It gets bad after I eat ground turkey breast for lunch everyday but not eating meat is not an option.

    I get heartburn/acid reflux that comes and goes. It will stick around for a few days usually and then go away.

    Alkaseltzer works well IMO.

    could be stress related, could be eating your food too fast, possible that spices or acidic foods cause it.

    Good question.

    I don't drink heavily, but if I have whiskey or bourbon more than a couple times in a week I'll start to get it the following week.

    I almost never drink. I think the last time I had an alcoholic beverage was in April.

    My last meal of the day is usually around 9-10pm, 2 hours before I fall asleep.

    GERD?

    The wife tells me not to eat at least 3-4 hrs before sleeping. And sure enough, I'll sneak in a tuna sandwich before bed and wake up with heartburn and a sour oil taste in my mouth.

    avoid smoking, fatty foods, and alchohol

    3 of my favorite thingss :wtc:

    also dont eat before you go to bed, and try propping the head end of your bed up with some books and shit, that def helps

    I switched up my foods a little...my first 3 meals the past week have been:

    -1 1/2 cups Special K Protein Plus
    -2/3c skim milk
    -apple or banana
    -40-50g Dymatize 12 hour protein

    -6oz ground turkey breast
    -fruit or nuts

    -1cup greek yogurt with ~20g sliced almonds and 1 cup blueberries



    Today I had:
    -1/2c oatmeal in water
    -1 scoop Syntha6
    -1 banana

    -5 1/2oz Cobia with Broccoli
    -1 huge muthafuckin peach

    about to have my yogurt with blueberries and almonds

    No heartburn so far though.
