Welcome BigG

Did you get your Titsey (snigger) number sorted SL?

I have reflux too sinbad, been on Omeprazole for years, seems to keep it under control!

Hi Cinders,

wow nice to know i'm not on me own with it.

Its been ok till this  years endoscopy. I have to go again this time next september.

Do you have the endoscopy to?

01/10/2012 at 14:55

Thankfully no, the tablets keep it under control (unless I forget to take one or 2)  so I don't get asked for repeat endoscopies.  Hope yours will be ok, when do you have to have it?

The great thing about the way I eat Sinbad is that after a few days of detox all the symptoms disappear - I only get them now when I eat cooked foods.  The way I eat will heal most illnesses, when you hear of people who've cured themselves of cancer or other nasty diseases by eating a special diet it's a mostly raw vegan diet that they're eating - when you look at all the information and evidence it's easy to see that it's actually our natural diet - nature never provided anything prepared, precooked or in a box!  this is a good explanation of the science behind it.  It would cure your's and Cinders reflux in weeks!

The only reason I still get problems is I keep caving in and eating the food I'm cooking for the family!

Cinders - looks like I entered twice online - must have been keen   They're going to pass it onto the people on the waiting list and get them to contact me to buy it.

I've had my first cherimoya today for years, there was a tree on the campsite I stayed on when I got to Spain but I reckon I must have tried an unripe one as it wasn't too nice.  This one was soft and creamy with a hint of something - pineapple or peach I think, very nice which is good as I bought a box full!

What's a chermoya SL?  Sounds nice though

What number are you keeping?

Well for my sins I'm off to bed, I signed up for a 4 week boot camp so off out at 6.30 tomorrow morning! 

02/10/2012 at 16:23

Cinders - cherimoya is also known as custard apple, always remind me of crococodiles or dinosaurs when I eat them - here's a piccy, you'll see why!

ps I'm keeping 176

02/10/2012 at 16:36

They look funky and sound delicious.  Were they from your Brighton food market?  Certainly wouldn't find them in a Tesco for sure!

Ok, I'll be looking out for 176   Is it just the 2 of us now? 

I'm pooped, was running round a community hall at 6.30 this morning

02/10/2012 at 16:38

Good choice I am 177!

Sorry not been around much.  Life is a drama.  Dog is still racking up a fortune.  No idea whether I did the right thing.  Did not really have a choice at the time.  Oh well, did not really want a new car.

((( HTF ))) How is your dog doing after the surgery? 

Think I'm no. 58.

03/10/2012 at 07:51

hI all,

Sorry not been in for couple of days, I have just found out why. I downloaded yahoo messenger etc, and I have picked up a virus, even on my netbook. I will takke it to repair shopsometime this morning.

I hear you Sunluvva about diet, mine is slowly getting better. But I binge eat every so often, instead of beer. Of which I may have a few today, I missed my daily posts in here. Feels like I  have known you all for years, not weeks.

I'm sure Cinders will put me  right if I'm wrong. But with Oesophagus reflux, its not so much the beer or diet, its the natural gasses that creep up the gulet muscle. I'm sure the past 2 endoscopies have not spotted itbecause I was 15st 9lb, I'm now 13st 3lb.

Your Crohns problem, sounds much more of a pain than ours though.

I hope everyone is ok.

Yay - Three Musketters go running in Titsey - that could be a book title 

I got them in Brighton Cinders, I have seen them in supermarkets but not too often as they go off so quickly.  I just had 4 ripe ones attracting the fruit flies so I've put them all in a smoothie with OJ, pears and spinach - yummy   Great going at the boot camp by the way!

Why did your doggie have to have the surgery HTF?

Sinbad - it's the food you eat that causes the gas - they ain't natural at all!  Our digestive system is such that food shouldn't be stored in there for days, when we eat meat or any animal products which we aren't designed to eat they stay in the gut and begin to rot or ferment - hence the gas and the horrible smells when you go to the loo.  For the record when you eat all raw fruit and veg you don't get any body odour at all, I don't need deodorant and to put it bluntly my shit don't stink!  Tis true, the food is absorbed, digested and the waste expelled so rapidly compared to what we call our 'normal' diet that it doesn't have time to ferment.

One thing that will help you assuming you're not going to eat like I do is to google a food combination chart and eat according to that - I don't know exactly whats in each category for a non raw diet but if you don't mix certain things they will digest more easily so won't ferment causing gas/reflux

Not drank since Friday night, but I'm going out tonight for a friends birthday drinks, so I imagine I'll have 2-3 pints. Hopefully won't get carried away and think "fcuk it", as I'll feel rough for work tomorrow. To be honest, 3 pints might leave me feeling rough anyway, so perhaps I'll try to aim for 2 and drink slowly.

simply as,


03/10/2012 at 19:49

03/10/2012 at 21:36

Hi AgentGinger,

Just enjoy what you have, on our birthday.

This time last year I  drank all day everyday. So your doing okay.

Thats 3 posts, have listened to a couple of you, still thank its too much.

Hope all you ok.

IIt went well at colege. I don;t think  tutor was happy. But I stuck with what I said. Sleep well all.

Morning, boot camp morning and up before the sun, most rare

How did the night out go AG?

Glad college went well sinbad.

Lol at the 3 Muskateers at Titsey

I used to drink all day every day this time last year, so I'm not going to beat myself up over one day. And I'm working on that.

Can you explain about boot camp again please Cinders, I missed what you explained last time.

Ar well time to get up and start again. The bus is always packed at this time.

The teacher that humiliated me, next time  to talk to her first, but I think it her way of trying to explain herself. She kept trying to get me to change my story, withh and without people present, but I didn't budge. So we agreed to put it down to a misundersting. I also got my class work support worker with me from now on, I struggle with instructions with following instructions ( a Dyspraxic trait). So she will be careful with what she says now.

Enjoy your day.

It's a 4 week exercise thingy sinbad, Tues, Thurs, Fri mornings fro 6.30 to 7.30am. 

04/10/2012 at 16:05


Cinders sounds like great fun.

I'm going to try and not have a beer till the 31st October now. I just felt like a whole lot of pressure has been taken off me at college. Why that day? well a friend of mine is a Pagen, and has invited me to some celebration of some form, I will google it later.

I just would like to learn to just have abeer when I go on holiday now. And perhaps not even then.

Has anyone been on a training running type of holiday? I'm sure I read somewhere that there is one on Lanzarote?

04/10/2012 at 16:27

was a fun night, Cinders, thanks. It was a cheese and beer tasting evening

Dinner consisted of 12 portions of different cheeses with small (50ml?) beers with each one. A nice change from a cheese and wine tasting. There was quite a lot of extra booze.

We went for a pint afterwards, so I reckon I probably drank the equivalent of 4 pints, and I felt rough this morning, and tired all day. Skipped lunchtime 30 min run, so going to drag my ass out of the flat when i get home tonight, for a short run before I get too comfy on the couch. Have a friends 40th birthday on Saturday, but I'm almost certainly going to stick to a couple of drinks.
