  1. I was absolutely in a hurry to get this book, beusace GERD is for me a big issue. I literally had to change my eating habits (for example, I don’t eat a big dinner nor do I eat after 6:30pm.) This problem is shared by many people, a lot of them women, and many other health issues (thyroid problems, asthma, and obesity) are associated with acid reflux disease or GERD. It isn’t healthy you can get throat problems and it sure is a pain. Sometimes there are no symptoms save hoarseness in the morning, but it’s no less a health concern.The book is comprehensive but easy to read. The author goes over the symptoms and causes of GERD (and you should see your physician about this for me, it was my allergist who told ME I had it, then I noticed the symptoms later.) He goes over the various pharmaceutical treatments, but all of them have pros and cons. Better if you can control GERD naturally by diet and weight management. I agree.The book also has food advice and recipes and this is helpful. I had to learn by trial and error for example, he mentions spaghetti and meatballs as a trigger. No kidding! I limited pasta to lunchtime for a while, and NOW I cannot even eat pasta at lunch instant fireball in the stomach. The author also warns about foods with modified food starch, a common ingredient used as a thickener that can trigger GERD. The recipes feature high fiber and ingredients that are less likely to trigger GERD so you have a place to start, some ideas to make meals that are more stomach-friendly. And at the risk of sounding like a killjoy, Rodriguez recommends cutting down on alcohol and smoking. I know from experience that even a glass of wine, too late in the evening, is like drinking a blowtorch. Good news however; by limiting alcohol, you may easily lose weight.The recipes have a Cuban flavor, or else a Mediterranean twist. Beans are featured. I confess to a prejudice toward beans and Latin American cooking, so I was more than delighted to see more black bean recipes but ones that don’t necessarily involve a lot of rice, which, you guessed it, is not great for GERD. Yes, he includes the classic Spanish homey favorite, arroz con pollo (chicken with flavored rice) and some interesting ideas, like chickpea crepes. Desserts tend to the high fiber (quinoa or polenta) with fruit. I have never used quinoa for desserts, but there are many porridge and fruit-based desserts I like, so these seemed interesting and possibly healthful as well. Rodriguez points out that sweets irritate GERD, so dessert is, like Cookie Monster says, a sometime thing. A treat, not a habit. And Rodriguez points out that you should make your plate at mealtimes contain a majority of fibrous carb foods, that is to say, vegetables, which will not only control your GERD but help you maintain or lose weight.If you have GERD, this is a useful reference, a guide and a good cookbook, too.
