I have had lots of acid reflux and regurgitation that has become worse lately. I eat lightly in the evening and always stay up at least 4 hours after a meal.
I only had a tiny bit when I awoke this morning and so waited to eat again thinking the food caused the problem. It is now lunch time and I still haven''s essential not to skip breakfast, because an empty stomach is sensitive when it has no food to properly absorb your stomach acid.
Yup, I''t contain stomach acid triggers. Avoid citrus juices.
Breads are a great choice because they are filling and absorbent.
Drink plenty between bites to allow your stomach to properly break down the food.
Aha, I read that it is better NOT to drink during meals except a sip or two. I used to drink lots during a meal. Now that I think about it, they said that because it would dilute the digestive juices. Guess I need mine diluted!
I am also trying to cut out bread as I thought that the gluten was causing the problems with acid and bloating. Hmmm
I also looked up acid caused by drinking water. I have tons of problems with this and so haven''t be dehydrated!
Here is an article I found on LiveStrong.com. www.livestrong.com/artic
It explains it in detail and also mentions why it causes more acid if I drink water before bed. Some other No foods are high fat meals and chocolate.
I must admit that when I was trying to follow the Paleo diet I was eating more fat in my diet. So I will reduce that again. I have also noticed feeling bad after eating dark chocolate. : (
Why is eating so difficult?
