    This book is simple science and seems like a great way to help people who are suffering from chronic, severe acid reflux/GERD. I myself will be trying this -I?m starting the day after Christmas. I am anxious to see if this finally gives me some relief. ...

    Dr. Aviv provides an anti-inflammation, alkaline diet to try to heal damage done by reflux. I think the intention is good here, and there is some good information, particularly about the Ph values of various foods and the reasons why some non-intuitive foods can be acid triggers. Th...

    I really enjoyed this book. I have suffered from extreme acid reflux for years now. My was found by a chronic cough and I do have some damage already as I have a burn in my throat. So when I saw this book I thought it would be good for me. I plan on starting the diet here in a week. Th...

    I can't speak to the diet because I haven't gone through it, so I'm rating this book in terms of usefulness to me. A little bit of context/background on my health situation: have had GERD and IBS since birth, tried various elimination diets/medicines to treat them. I'm currently tak...

    I only read The Acid Watcher Diet because my doctor recommended it to me, sure, but that doesn't mean it felt entirely like homework. Dr. Jonathan Aviv has written a book that's a great resource for people with acid reflux disease, particularly the newly diagnosed and those with "silen...

    I never thought I'd be the kind of person who read a diet book... until I started struggling with acid reflux after having an "iron stomach" my entire life. Sure, there are medications that reduce acid, but taking them long-term isn't recommended. I wanted something that would help me ...

    I won this book from a Goodreads giveaway. Some parts were interesting and informative. However, I was sorely disappointed in the recipes. I was looking for new recipes and more food selection ideas. The PH charts were good to know, but only about 2 recipes sounded good, the rest not s...

    I have been on this diet for 6 weeks. At first my GERD got better until I started getting really busy at work and had no time to walk after dinner. Then it flared up again and has been bothering on and off for the past 2.5 weeks. As a result, I haven't moved on to the maintenance phase...

    An eye-opening book about acid reflux. Many people have symptoms that they do not connect to acid reflux, such as coughing, sore throats and trouble swallowing. Some even have no symptoms at all. A must-read for anyone who eats an "American" diet. ...

    I found this book extremely useful. A wholesome approach to managing a very common problem; acid reflux and heartburn. Dr. Aviv's book is a manual for each step of overcoming the symptoms of too much dietary acid. Being a sufferer myself I'm looking forward to getting off the chalky ...

    I received the book as a Goodreads giveaway and was delighted to receive it as I have suffered from GERD for years. The outline presented in the rather long book (with recipes) is very strict and restrictive. As a mainly organic, no processed food eater who is also willing to eat proce...

    This book is filled with great information which I found was presented in an easy to understand manner. The problem I have with it is that I don?t live in America, so my access to the majority of ingredients is limited. I do plan on attempting the healing phase, but I will have to co...

    A good overview of acid reflux. The material is accessible, but when it comes to the diet it seems too radical and too far reaching. For most people, it would be impossible to stick with it. For example, the author says the only drink a person with reflux should consume is water. Hmm, ...

    After a near-choking incident on our 25th wedding anniversary, it was the wake-up call that I needed to get serious about changing my diet and lifestyle. Before reading this book, little did I know that the lump feeling in my throat that makes is very difficult to swallow was from thro...

    I finished reading the book and now I?m one week into the diet. It seems to be working, no nagging in my chest so far, which is excellent! I didn?t need all the recipes but maybe I will look at some of them. ...

    After dealing with acid reflux for a decade now, I have tried nearly every crackpot theory out there for solving my symptoms once and for all. Needless to say, none of them have 100% worked. Even stranger have been the year or so periods where all my symptoms go away and mysteriously r...

    Repeat itself for multiple times unnecessarily, but it's a good book anyway. I've been following the steps for 5 days and it seems to work. I gave it 4 stars because it could be much more dense without leaving out information and I'd have liked pictures for the recepies. ...

    Good tips and dietary guidelines on reducing acid for good. An alternative to taking PPI's segment would have been welcomed, since some have adverse effects to these medications. Some of the recipes are pretty good (especially the smoothies). ...

    Very informative and interesting read. Dr. Aviv provides the information and necessary steps to help alleviate GERD and get one started on a general path to healing. His methods and science are fairly straight forward and he does a good job of explaining his position and reasoning. It'...

    I have been following these guidelines (I don?t like the word ?diet?) for three weeks now and I can say IT WORKS. I was to the point of taking both Prilosec and Zantac every single day and tons of Tums ... and still having acid reflux, especially at night. I won?t lie - it?s ...

    I had been suffering from severe reflux (LPR - silent reflux) for over a year. Severe being I was taking 40mg of esomeprazole magnesium (Nexium - proton pump inhibitor) everyday, sucralfate 2x a day before meals, and changed my diet moderately and still dealt with moderate reflux. I?...

    I will return to this review when I've gone further into the diet because I'm currently on day two (although I was easing into it for the past week - and my symptoms do seem reduced - I am tracking all my meals & symptoms). My thoughts so far is life without acid is boring af, but ...

    The Acid Watcher Diet by Jonathan Aviv is a great tome for anyone willing to make dietary changes in order to get rid of acid reflux without using medication. if you like what it says, you'll keep it as a reference book. I thought that I was reasonably knowledgable about the topic, but...

    Fascinating connections made. I had been on a journey to identify and solve what was wrong with me, undergoing several unproductive endoscopies and trying various treatments, but Dr Aviv hit the nail on the head. He explains the acid throatburn reaction well and proposes a lifestyle ch...

    This seems like a very fitting book to write a review on given I deal with a stomach disorder that flares with acid EVERY DAMN DAY. I was a bit apprehensive to read a "how to" book about something I know and oftentimes despise greatly, but I figured I give this book a fair chance. The ...
