Re: Foods to eat/ Not to eat?
lean meats..turkey and chicken, no red meat, especially if marbeled. Rice, Potatoes (not mashed with butter and milk), sweet potatoes, veggies, fruits, all are fine for me except bananas or citrus fruits).
I make Turkey meatloaf, Turkey meatballs with pasta (why cant you eat pasta?), I eat absolutely no dairy whatsoever (but Im lactose intolerant), I eat minimal breads. I eat almonds and avacado every day. If I am craving carbs I have baked pita chips, no greasy potato chips. I make alot of homemade foods (I personally dont like chemicals in foods). There are really alot of things you can eat that are healthy and not likely to trigger acid reflux. Just really avoid Chocolate,.....thats a hard one for some people! And Soda, thats no good! Stick with water, its the safest and best option.
Eating out for Sushi is fine, Be careful with sauces at some Chinese Restaurants, and fatty white sauces like alfredo, etc. When out I order just a little olive oil and garlic on pasta.
THere is life after Gerd, it just is a little blander and requires willpower! And you know what...you just might live longer anyways by giving up fried foods, soda, etc....They are bad for you anyways!
