Heartburn and burps with an empty stomach?

Recommended Posts

Hey Gang!

I'm a total newbie to Whole30. My husband and I are in Day 3 of our first ever Whole30 (and really pretty excited about it)! We read the Timeline post before starting, and can I say that we are difinitively in-between the "hang over" stage and the "i just need a nap" stage.

One odd thing that has popped up is that I am getting heart burn on an empty tummy. I used to be a 3-meals-a-day with snacks in the middle kind of eater, and I have been very good about not snacking between meals. For the first time in I can't remember how long, I'm actually feeling my tummy growl and feeling hunger pangs. I think it's so cool!

Along with the hunger pangs and growly tummy came lots of burping and heartburn. Has this happened to anyone else? Should I stick it out a little while longer and see if that improves and goes away? Can I use natural heartburn remedies like Apple Cider vinegar or Aloe Vera juice if it gets really bad?

Just wondering. Thanks for listening! (or reading, rather.)

I'm so sorry we missed this! Volume has been nuts since Jan 1! I hope the problem has passed, but for perspective or any others who are experiencing this:

Crazy hunger, to the point of pain, is a standard day 3 problem for me on a Whole30. It's like my body gets over-excited at the thought of food! I'd up your portion sizes a bit, drink plenty of water and yes, absolutely hit the ACV or Aloe if it gets painful :)
