    Foods to avoid

    Is there a website that provides a list of foods to avoid? I have a small list that came from some heartburn foundation but there's a lot of popular/common foods it doesn't list.

    I'm particularly interested in Jello gelatin, Jello pudding, soy milk, soy burgers, veggie burgers, soups, and cool whip. And why is a baked potato ok but mashed potatoes aren't (I love mashed potatoes)?

    Re: Foods to avoid

    I would also love to have a list of foods. Do you have LPR or GERD? I have LPR and it seems that it doesnt matter what I eat, everything aggravates it.

    Re: Foods to avoid

    I was originally diagnosed with GERD in 2000. Since then I think I've developed LPR. I no longer have health insurance and I don't have a job. I'm trying to go to college and it's impossible for me to do that and work at the same time. So I can't afford to go to the doctor.


    I just found this list - [url]http://patienteducation.upmc.com/Pdf/GERD.pdf[/url]


    Now I just wish I knew if chocolate fudge pudding is bad. I could easily give up chocolate candy if I could still eat my chocolate fudge pudding pies.

    It could be if the mashed potatoes are seasoned with butter or margarine, it makes them rich. Rich foods are a problem for people with acid reflux. So if a baked potato is ok, it must mean without any butter. I'm not sure if I would like that, but it would beat not having potatoes I suppose.

    Re: Foods to avoid

    Well I'm a big fan of chocolate, but it sure does reap havoc with acid reflux. I have just gotten away from eating it much at all. Occasionally. I thought I would list foods that cause me to have acid reflux.

    bananas and oranges the worst with fruits for me
    all tomato based foods
    chocolate
    milk products
    all spicy foods
    oatmeal (and its so good for you)
    all fruit juices
    ketsup
    mustard
    miracle whip salad dressing- is the pits for my reflux love it, but it doesn't love me back
    coffee
    soda pop, even the caffeine free and diet, too much carbonation, sometimes If I want some, I leave it set out and go flat. I've gotten used to it that way.
    gave up alchol, no margaritas for me anymore
    sausage, bacon
    pizza without saying

    The one thing I have noticed is the portions. I find that if I eat smaller portions, I do better at what I am eating. It's hard to do sometimes when you want seconds, but it's either cut down, or put up with the pain of the reflux


    When I'm having a bad round with the reflux, it's almost everything I eat. I never would have thought dairy, milk in particular, would be a food to avoid, but it is definitely an acid producer for me.

    Re: Foods to avoid

    Hi everyone,

    I'm also trying to figure out which foods to avoid. In my search, I came across the Specific Carbohydrate Diet - was designed for people with intestinal problems, and has to do with the excess sugar in the body and the bacterias that live off of it...apparently this diet can also help with reflux, I guess because it stems from the same problem...so I'm trying to cut out all refined sugars, and the other "illegal" foods, like pasta, potato, wheat, etc. to see if it helps. Unfortunately, I love chocolate too, and that is one of the supposed trigger foods. I've only been doing this about a week, but I can say so far I notice less phlegm, so there is hope.
