Re: Any research on standing vs. sitting after eating?

I have found that I ALWAYS have fewer symptoms if I stay standing after eating for about thirty minutes or so. I water my plants or take a short, relaxed walk. No vigorous exercise, but some relaxing activity that keeps me upright seems to help me. I rarely experience heartburn at night even though I eat my larger meal in the evening. I eat not too much at lunchtime but usually experience more heartburn after lunch because I work a sedentary job and must continue working after lunch.

Maybe we can take a quick poll here and see what others have experienced or if there are strong opinions one way or the other.
