    Paleo Crisis - Help!

    Primal Fuel
    Hi Guys,

    I have been primal for about six months and I have lost 65 lbs. The change in my appearance has made my life better in so many ways. However, I am having trouble with (what I believe is) GERD. I never had it before, but I now constantly have to belch. It just sits in my esophagus all day.

    I have tried eating more chicken and turkey, I have upped my vegetable intake, I have cut fruit completely for a few days, I have limited almond butter and coconut milk consumption (and other fats), but nothing seems to help.

    My buddy is on the blood type diet and he keeps telling me that my blood type is not cut out for heavy meat consumption, but that goes contrary to Mark and Robb Wolf’s opinions. I do not want to believe this, but I am running out of ideas.

    Has anybody had a similar experience? Any treatment ideas that I could try? Any help would be really, really appreciated.

    I take red desert clay and it's helped me tremendously w/acid reflux.

    You really had success with the red desert clay? Hard science on it seems to be lacking.

    Yeah, I feel pretty much the same. But, I am really struggling with this, so I have to listen to other opinions...

    How's your caffeine intake? I used to have horrible acid reflux but mine went away when PB was started...

    No, I'm lying, they pay me to say that. Yes, I really did

    Try "Now Super Enzymes" and/or ox bile supplements for a little while until you body adapts completely.

    Man, I definitely drink coffee. Did stopping coffee consumption make the acid reflux go away or was it something else related to PB? I feel like such an addict, but cutting coffee sucks! Especially if you can't substitute it for something else. I have tried substituting warm water, but even that makes me belch.

    the blood type diet is bunk.

    try the now foods superenzyme capsule (not tablet). A lifetime of the standard american diet compromises the gi tract and often leads to low stomach acid. Robb Wolf has talked about on a few of his podcasts....anyway, the superenzyme helped me tremendously as well as several friends of mine that converted to primal and had similar issues.
