Seems as if this eating small meals during the day is helpful and can be a benefit...however, not always possible when someone works in an office!

I know that you didn't ask this, but have you looked into Paleo/Primal/Ancestral/etc ways of eating? I had/have horrible Acid Refulx and GERD, but since I started following those philosphies and gave up grains, I haven't had to take any of my medications in over 6 weeks, I am seriously a new woman. In the book Practical Paleo, there is a whole section on this which I found extremely helpful. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

I second CMCOLE's suggestion to enter your food for the next day, the night before. I do this and it is a huge help in making sure I don't go over - and it's easier to go over the more meals you have! 7 meals is 7 opportunities to go over, so pre-tracking is a life saver.

My husband has GERD and we are managing it with diet and posture for now, but it is rough. Hugs to you!

I have two suggestions (other than paper & pencil, which I think is great, btw)

- plan ahead and enter your food in the tracker all at once
- if you have the ability, either access SP site on a computer on the go (or smart phone with a browser, if you have that technology

the only reason I don't suggest the SP App is that it costs money, and not everyone is willing to pay.

MISSA526,
I also have GERD, but it is getting better with my weight loss and eating 6 meals a day really helps! I try not to eat a big meal and not to eat right before bedtime. (That is a challenge for me!) Do you take any medication for your GERD?? I have taken lots, but am now on Famotidine...prescription Pepcid. It works good for me. But not as strong of a medication as I used to have to take. That's a good thing.

Good idea about using a exercise and food diary. It will help you get everything into the computer when you have time.

Have a great day!
Angie

I have GERD pretty bad and If I eat a normal size meal I get horrible acid reflux. Also I cant always get online to enter my food. It's very frustrating. I think I'm going to start using an exercise and food diary (paper) so I can enter in what I eat when I can. emoticon
