Eating Disorders Expert
I strongly suggest that you consider seeing you general practitioner and be prescribed some medication for your heartburn rather than resorting to food that is resulting in significant weight gain. I am not sure what your current weight is, and whether you are now overweight, but a 20 kilogramn iuncrease in one year is significant if you were coming from a normal weight from the outset. I suspect that your reasons for (over)eating were more than just "medicinal" for the heartburn, but is it not possible that you have been comfort eating in response to the emotions associated with the break-up? You should become more conscious of your dietary intake, exercise moderately, and perhaps consider talking to a counsellor or therapist about your feelings if you are still struggling with your circumstances. And as far as your heartburn is concerned, your GP should be able to prescribe you a number of excellent and safe products to resolve that problem. I assume that your peptic ulceration is also being managed?
