    • Enjoying your meals sounds good. One of the most interesting thing that people discover when they switch their evening meal to a small, easy to digestEnjoying your meals sounds good. One of the most interesting thing that people discover when they switch their evening meal to a small, easy to digest meal is that they then wake up hungry and ready to eat a significant breakfast whereas before they were not hungry. :-) They also report waking up more energetic in the morning. This is our experience as well. It is not essential but it is certainly very helpful.

I really hate this and I have to do this reintroducing with more items. Is there a link you have to show calorie intake ?

    • I am not sure if I can share a link to a Facebook image here but will try. It is about calorie density.  https://www.facebook.com/lindacarneymd/photos/I am not sure if I can share a link to a Facebook image here but will try. It is about calorie density.  https://www.facebook.com/lindacarneymd/photos/a.1868165823214367.1073741836.201196426577990/1868172676547015/?type=3&theater
      However, be aware the answer is not to start eating excessively dense foods as they tend to be inflammatory. Instead the answer is probably to eat MORE of the starches.
      Are you currently underweight and that is why you are worried about maintaining your weight? The reason I ask is that most people when they go on a Starch-Smart program see their weight go down for awhile, until they reach their ideal weight and then they plateau.

Dr Carney I’m having to deal with this horrid burping and no relief from a what I assume is heartburn? I’m also worried because I’m not feeling an appetite but having to force myself to eat which seems to make this heaviness in my lower chest worse , the burping doesn’t seem to relieve me. It happens every evening, I’ve tried the breathing exercises, raising my head , I took Tums once yesterday, it helped but today not so much, I’m at my wits end. More
    • Nice. Glad you found somebody. It ends up that she and Dr. Carney both graduated from the same Medical School. Small world.

    Ken I started the Dr McDougall elimination diet yesterday,is that the one you did ? I had some questions about it, I read it as if the list on the plan were to be included , not just the only foods to eat ?  I was able to sleep so well last night and Im feeling better today. Thanks for the information, I don’t know why I have the issues either, I threw out all that I had prepared for this WOE and cooking as I go to make sure I didn’t add anything extra that I shouldn’t have. wish me luck .

    Sean, I’m doing the elimination dietFrom McDougall now so I’m eating a bowl of brown rice with cooked plums and baked sweet potatoes for breakfast. But I when I did the split pea soup for breakfast the day prior to that, I did have a couple of small BM’s? The problem was the horrible chest discomfort. It felt like I had something stuck in there.

    Thank you Ken, I was trying to figure out what was causing my heart burn /indigestion, I’ve been dealing with for about a week, it was almost like A gnawing feeling in my chest, almost Like I had something heavy stuck there. I finally had some relief last evening. Still burping though as well as not having a good BM , passing gas but I don’t have the urge either. I was having 2-3 since starting this vegan way of eating. As I said for the most the pain of indigestion is gone , no BM today so far.
