Acid Reflux Diet Plan
The Acid Reflux Diet provides Educational Information and a Diet Solution to your Acid Reflux Problem.
Watch out for Trigger Foods - Eating smaller meals is one of the most important steps you can take to prevent acid reflux, even more so than changing the foods you eat. Yet, since we are all different there are specific foods that can aggravate your reflux symptoms. The most common culprits are fried or fatty foods, spicy foods, onions, garlic, tomatoes and tomato sauce, coffee and tea (caffeine), chocolate, mint-flavored items, citrus juices and fruits, carbonated beverages, and alcohol.

pH Values for Food/Beverage Groups. Avoid the Acidic! If your reflux symptoms are severe you are advised to follow a strict acid-free diet, which can be describes as a “detox program for your digestive system”. This involves avoiding any foods with a pH below 5 such as most fruits, tomatoes, pickles, mustard, onion, beer and yogurt.
The Unwelcome Burn. If you suffer from Acid Reflux or GERD, limit your fluid intake with meals. Liquids add to the volume of food in your stomach and increases stomach distension. A full stomach puts more pressure on the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the muscle that normally prevents food from moving back up into your esophagus, and thus adds to your risk of reflux. To minimize stomach volume, take small sips of water while you eat, and try to drink mostly between rather than during meals.
