Of course sometimes one thing leads to another … hence this post. It's about Acid Reflux and the foods that can best help it while avoiding those who may not... tomatoes may not help it!
You will see I have linked to two articles. I think it's good to share all relevant information, and they both give further food for thought … no pun intended!
"Diet and nutrition for GERD
Tomatoes and citrus fruit
Garlic, onions, and spicy foods
While the lists above include common triggers, you may have unique intolerances to other foods. You might consider eliminating the following foods for three to four weeks to see if symptoms improve; dairy, flour-based products like bread and crackers, and whey protein.
Making lifestyle changes
Maintain a healthy weight.
Chew gum that isn’t peppermint or spearmint flavoured.
Don’t overeat, and eat slowly.
Remain upright for at least two hours after eating.
Avoid tight clothing.
Don’t eat for three to four hours before going to bed.
Has a low-carb diet improved your reflux symptoms? Please let us know in the comments … and you may also like to read the various comments on the original article which can be found here
Dear reader, you will find a variety of articles (and recipes) within this blog. It is important to note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account.
