I have a large hiatus hernia and wondered if there was anyone else here who also does 5:2 with a hiatus hernia?

I have a hiatus hernia too. I don’t think fasting especially helps but not going to bed on a full stomach might help as it might reduce acid reflux symptoms. Drinking water regularly helped me feel less discomfort and pain. But if you have acid reflux as well as a hernia, then it might also help to cut out, or down on acidic food (raw onions, raw tomatoes, citrus fruit, blackberries, vinegar, fat) and moderate intake of caffeine, alcohol, chocolate, and mint. There might be some benefit in not eating Too much wholemeal/wholegrain food – or at least in soaking rice etc well before cooking it (maybe this makes it more tender and digestible whilst retaining its beneficial qualities).
