For the first time in my life, I wake up with a sour stomach in the middle of the night and have to take antacids. This trend started just a year ago but it can happen once every couple of months. I have looked at my habits, and in my adult life, and first and foremost I have gained weight, but maintained at 175 pounds for the last ten years, after age 35. My ideal weight is about 160. I don't tolerate too many criciferous vegetables and I drink 2 diet sodas and 2 beers most days. Other days, I may have one soda and one beer. I have taken up coffee for the first time regularly two years ago in my mid 40s. My guess is being 15 pounds overweight, with beer, soda, and coffee is the issue. But I can't imagine veggies being all that bad. Thoughts? Remedies?
