Our expert says:
Thank you for clearing up the kilojoule vs kilocalorie question. I still think that 1200 kcal per day is too little even if you are trying to lose weight. The recommended energy intake for adult women who are trying to lose weight is 1500 kcal/day. All the symptoms you describe do indicate gastric reflux with a strong emotional component. My advice to consult a team of specialists is, therefore, still applicable: a) A gastroenterologist to help you control the gastric reflux; b) a clinical psychologist to assist you to regain your emotional balance after the stressful events of the past year (stress is one of the prime causes of excess acid production); c) a registered dietitian to help you with a balanced diet to also control your acid reflux and to assist with weightloss.
