The Acid Watcher Diet: A 28-Day Reflux Prevention and Healing Program Livres audio Audible – Version intégrale
Dr. Aviv guides listeners through healthy dietary choices with targeted recipes, helping them balance their bodies and minds for optimal health and break acid-generating habits for good.
Do you suffer from abdominal bloating; a chronic, nagging cough or sore throat; postnasal drip; a feeling of a lump in the back of your throat; allergies; or shortness of breath? If so, odds are that you are experiencing acid reflux without recognizing its silent symptoms, which can lead to serious long-term health problems, including esophageal cancer.
In The Acid Watcher Diet, Dr. Jonathan Aviv, a leading authority on the diagnosis and treatment of acid reflux disease, helps listeners identify those often misunderstood symptoms while providing a proven solution for reducing whole-body acid damage quickly and easily.
His 28-day program is part of a two-phase eating plan, with a healthy balance of both macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats) and micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants), that works to immediately neutralize acid and relieve the inflammation at the root of acid reflux.
This audiobook includes a downloadable PDF that contains diagrams, food lists, shopping lists, recipes, meal plans, HIIT exercises, menus, and additional reading from the book.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Would I recommend it - No. There are many books out there which explain acid reflux. Sufferers seem to be clutching a straws hailing this book as a bible. The AWD, as it is referred to, is being touted as THE answer. It is not, and I find the Americanism of it unhelpful.
I have tried to stick to the 4 week “healing” diet as strictly as I can ..... and ITS DEFINITELY WORTH IT.
The first week is expensive and I thought “Wow” ... I don’t know if I can afford this - but if I had spent more time going through the recipes and suggested weekly Meal Plan in detail, I could have seen that I didn't really need to buy. For example, Agave Nectar [1 tbsp a week) or the Bragg’s Liquid Amino ..... I could have replaced those meals with other ones in the book with less unusual ingredients. (Most of the unusual ingredients I found in Holland & Barrett or Waitrose). Organic chicken is expensive wherever you buy it! Also, many things last for the 4 weeks and beyond, so it was only the first week that was more costly.
The Meal Plan can be hard work in the first week .... constantly checking ahead to see what you need to soak or cook the night before to prepare your meals for the next day or for later that day. However, once the first week is over it becomes easier, as you know more about what you are doing and what you enjoy eating, so you can start to replace some of the recipes on the Meal Planner with others given in the book. It is fairly easy to make the recipes vegetarian or stick to the fish recipes instead of using the organic chicken ones, if you want to.
I am now at the end of my third week - and my life is changing. I feel SO much better. I am eating horribly healthily, which I would never have imagined in a million years! Many of my symptoms have gone, or are definitely better - and as an additional bonus, I have lost about 12lbs in weight whilst still eating well and not starving! The weight has gone from around my middle “tyre” and not from my wrists (or somewhere else you can’t notice, which is what usually happens!) I can really see the physical difference and my trousers are now too big at the waist.
I am now looking forward to the “Maintenance” phase, where I can start re-introducing foods and drink that I have cut out over the last few weeks. I am determined to keep this going in some form or other, after making all this effort to finally help myself. I have been in denial about my conditions for so many years and have not previously had the determination to see something like this through. I am only going to introduce one or two things a week, so I can’t get confused if any symptoms re-occur. I will know what acts as a “trigger” and that I have to stop eating/drinking it. I’m not sure what I’m going to start with - but it may just be a cup of weak coffee or a cheese sandwich for lunch (in brown bread, of course!) I am happy to continue with the breakfasts and evening meals - it’s lunchtime food, especially if I’m out, that I would struggle with. We’ll see.
Anyway, if you have also decided/reached the stage where you have to do something, as you cannot bear another day of sore throats, acrid sour taste in your mouth etc. then this is for you. You will at least give your oesophagus, throat and mouth a respite from acid for a while. 4 weeks is an easily manageable timescale to give it a try.
Even if you only read the first part of the book and don’t even try the Meal Plan, you will learn a lot about how modern foods are causing the reactions in our bodies today. A very interesting read which is set out in an orderly, easy to read and understand format.
I have looked for a contact email to Dr Aviv but have not been able to find one. (Frequently at the end of books such as this there is a contact address). I am also taking Nizatidine 150mgms at night and have risen the head of my bed 6 inches, so I am really trying hard with this LPR but nothing has worked yet.
This book dwells a lot on oesophageal cancer which is a downer to start with, I want to concentrate on the positive not the negative, but now that the idea has been planted I have this horror all the time at the back of my mind and when after suffering this regimen for 3 week I seem to be getting worse not better it is very scary. I feel as though I need to tell Dr Aviv (since he wrote the book) and let him write an answer to that. I recently had a full count blood test and my doctor said that if anything sinister had been going on it would have shown up in the test, and as the test turned out to be normal I should have been placated, but when symptoms continue and even get worse in spite of my best efforts, then what do to? Where to turn...?
My considered opinion is that the chances of being helped by a doctor are slim to none. I have literally seen dozens. It is about time more money was poured into researching this terrible acid reflux condition which affects millions and must cost a fortune in missed time off work because the pain is so debilitating, not to mention the erosion of the vocal cords!
I am still thumbing through this book, marking passages, underlining recipes, vegetables and fruit that I can eat. Like so many others I had little to give up, I am not a smoker, I do not drink alcohol, I do not eat processed food, I am seriously under weight, (the last thing I want is to lose more weight) I have only been drinking water for years. Sooooo as I said,2 stars from me so far, but I will try longer, as they say, (and I seriously mean it) "never say die".
P.S. The recipe for Dr Aviv's Power Bar is very good indeed.
