Hello together, 8 months after the diagnose - Short Barrett- I was really in shock and lost about 5-6kg of my "normal" weight. I ´m 43 and now have about 71kg - 179cm and not strong build - > BMI about 22.
I belive that I developed barrett because in my student time I drunk and eat a lot before going to bed - I sometimes noticed the reflux during sleep with coughing - that was the only problem I had with this topic.
A lot of people ask me - are you ill - it seams you lost wheigt ?!
THIS is not really enjoyable.
I never had stomach problems or heartburn - before and after the diagnosis with 20mg ppi. Only a 3 months cough which startet at the beginning last year - but this symptom disapears over the last months (sometimes a very lightly problem with breathing in - but my lung functions are normal and I can do my sports (cardio and weight) without any problems).
I try to do more and more intermittent fasting (14:10) and not to eat after 5 pm. I start the day with an extensive breakfast, a light lunch and do dinner canceling. Between the meels I eat some healthy snacks. I try to avoid bad fats and eat a lot of rice, potatoes, veggies, fruits. Fish and chicken too with low amount of red meat.
Not to forget that I do 2 times a week cardio training (do this before my diagnoses too) and 2 times muscle training (doing this I always be aware that I breath normaly during my exercises).
My wish is going back to my normal weight but I cannot do this with my actual eating behavour. If I break this system I always feel completely guilty - not caring my barrett -
MY vicious circle.
I write those words while I ´m sitting in a hotel and see all the people eating their meals - I have hunger... I want to eat a steak!!!
Does anybody have the same problems or can help me to find a solution.
