Can Acid Reflux Cause Weight Gain?
I wouldn’t necessarily say that acid reflux causes weight gain, but I would say that there are foods that most people eat every day for years that cause both acid reflux and weight gain.
So it might seem like the acid reflux is causing the weight gain, but in reality, eating the wrong foods and combinations of foods can cause weight gain and acid reflux at the same time.
Just to give you a simple example of foods that give me acid reflux, and are known to cause weight gain would be white sugar, and white bread. There are many other foods but let me explain these two and how they both cause acid reflux and weight gain.
White sugar makes your body overly acidic. Your body will sometimes store excess acids in the fat cells to protect your vital organs. This is one way that it makes you store fat.
Another way that it makes you store fat is that it makes your insulin levels spike and you start storing fat. Too much sugar is a factor in diabetes as well.
White flour also makes your insulin spike just like the white sugar, but white flour also clogs the filter in your intestines Acidaburn that is supposed to absorb nutrients.
Too much bread and sugar are known to cause weight gain. This is pretty much well accepted as truth by the general population.
I knew this guy that opened a pizza shop. He was normal size. After a few years of eating pizza and sodas all day he gained a lot of weight. He eventually sold the shop, then he slimmed down.
Bread and cheese cause constipation. If you are constipated and you eat a lot of sugar, the extra calories cannot even get out of your body because the exit path is physically clogged.
Constipation can lead to over toxicity, because toxins are not being eliminated properly, which can then lead to acne and many other health problems
The sugar calories have nowhere to go but to be saved in the fat cells. The sugar is also causing other foods in the body to not digest properly because the body will use the sugar first and halt digestion on the rest of the foods until the sugar is used up. So your body is starving for usable nutrients that have digested properly.
Acid reflux usually tortures me if I eat any kind of starch. Starches are bread, potatoes, rice, etc… Acid reflux is a sign that you are not digesting foods properly.
If you take drugs to neutralize the acid, it will make your food not digest even more. Especially meat. If this meat is stuck in your body because of constipation, and it is not digesting because the stomach acid has been neutralized by drugs, then it starts to rot.
So then you are full of rotting meat. This will affect the way your body smells on the outside as well and if you have very smelly gas, it means that you are full of rotten food in your body.
