I am on my second week of LT, first week went beautifully smooth, but now over the past two days I 've had heartburn. I've never had it before except when I was about 38 weeks pregnant so am wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Also, I have tried drinking more Peppermint tea but this has no effect. Does anyone know if any heartburn remedies are allowed on LT?

Heartburn is a feature of the early stages of the diet for some people, but it soon dies down. I think you may be allowed gaviscon, but nothing else, make sure whatever you take has no sugar in it (though most "minty" things have sugar of some form or other, unless it's wholly natural, like peppermint herb or tea. I have the opposite problem to you in that my heartburn STOPS when I'm on LT. I've been on it for 3 months and in the last week or so I've been slowly introducing lo carb food, but the heartburn has returned with a vengence - I like you developed it when pregnant.
