Eat this, avoid that
Similar to most gastrointestinal problems, the frequency and severity of acid reflux depend on your nutrition. There are trigger foods that immediately cause heartburn to susceptible people and others. In general, you need to stay away from greasy foods, fried foods, fast food products, citrus juices, and caffeine. But there are certain foods you would not expect to be acid reflux triggers, such as chocolate, mint, and soda. If you start avoiding all of these, your acid reflux will go away faster. Instead, you could increase your daily fiber intake and have more protein in your diet, which would help you feel satiated and avoid overeating.
