Acid Reflux Disease: A Diet Plan You Can Follow

By

Living with Acid Reflux can be pretty tough. But there are steps you can take to make it easier, especially when it comes to diet. With some carefully chosen meal choices, Acid Reflux can be reduced and you can get your life back. Let's take a look at the options you have, and the choices you should stray away from.

Foods to Avoid

From greased up fast food to sugary sodas, our lifestyles are bombarded with food choices that can set off Acid Reflux disease and leave you feeling uncomfortable for a long time. That's why it's so important to be aware of what you're eating, and how to manage your Acid Reflux. Here are some general guidelines of foods to avoid:

  • Spicy, fried, and fatty foods
  • Refined sugar
  • Citrus fruits
  • Coffee, tea, and carbonated beverages
  • Mashed potatoes and raw onions
  • Potato and corn chips
  • Alcohol
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Spaghetti and sauce

Foods to Eat

This may seem like a lot. Don't panic, there are still many foods which are quick and easy on the stomach, such as:

  • Fresh or dried apples
  • Apple juice
  • Broiled steak
  • Skinless chicken breast
  • Extra lean ground beef
  • Egg whites
  • Cereal, bran, or oatmeal
  • Fat free cookies

Try to eat small portions and eat more often during the day. This allows your stomach to digest what you have already eaten and this can stop the cycle of overeating, or eating to fast. Don't inhale your food, take time to taste it. Also, take the time to try different foods to discover what works for you as an individual. If you suffer from acid reflux and changing your diet alone is not the answer, you will be happy to know that there are natural nutritional products which really soothes the heartburn right at the source, safely, naturally and immediately.
