For a few years I suffered with heartburn pain every night. I found myself chewing on tums every night and tried sleeping on more pillows to be in an upright position in bed. Nothing kept my heartburn from coming back, no matter what. I tried eating various foods and avoided spicy food and fried foods, all to no avail.
Then it happened! I went on a serious diet and lost twenty-five pounds in five months. After the first ten pounds came off, I noticed that my heartburn had completely disappeared. And now, as I'm working toward losing five or ten more pounds, I'm encouraged by the complete disappearance of this painful symptom.
I wonder if anyone else has noticed their heartburn disappearing with weight loss?
