First of all - I'm new to this community so please be kind! =)( A little background about me...Collapse )
Anyway - the point of this post! I've been on this diet for several months now, and I've been having a bit of a problem with my water intake. I'm not drinking gobs and gobs of water, but I do at least do 2-3 of my 32oz bottles a day. My problem is that a lot of the time if I just drink water, I get serious acid indegestion soon after. If I have a small sip of soda, it goes away - but my problem is that I'm trying to stay away from soda all togehter! I don't eat acidic foods, and realistically my staple intake is rice and chicken. I've thought long and hard about this, and I just can't figure it out. I brought it up to my other (family) doctor, and she shrugged it off and said that since I didn't have a pre-existing issue with heartburn and acid indegestion that she couldn't give me anything for it (which I think sounds mostly like an excuse but oh well, what can ya do?)
Has any one else ever had a problem like this? If so, what did you do to remedy it?
