'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Could someone who is well behaved with their GERD diet share with me their typical daily intake?

Could someone who is well behaved with their GERD diet share with me their typical daily intake? I am having a really hard time and I am to the point where I’m willing to do anything to not have this acid in my throat any more. I hate fish so anything other than that would be so helpful. I do not smoke or drink any alcohol but I could exercise more so that’s one lifestyle change I have to make. Thank you 🙂

I eat cereal for breakfast with almond or soy milk and a banana. I eat chicken breast, mashed potato, steamed veggies, ham, wraps, lettuce, cheesecake. I think what I DON’T eat is more important.

Yes I am trying to stay away from red sauces and hot and spicy foods. I am a sucker for sugar and caffeine so I have just not been doing well with that portion. After today I am going to do what I can to prevent so much pain because it was a rough one. I know everyone’s trigger foods are different so I was looking to see what a normal day looks like for people I feel sad and like I will miss out on enjoying life but if I see people enjoying food still I will be more willing to comply haha

Penny Willow
Rachel yeah at some point you just decide that trigger foods aren’t worth the pain. I haven’t eaten chocolate in ten months but I have found that cocoa free white chocolate doesn’t affect me so I make do with that. I found an acid free coffee I tolerate really well which I order from the US and have that. You figure out alternatives to your favourites and sort of learn a different relationship with food - if that makes sense. I now eat mostly because I’m hungry and not because I like the taste. It’s very liberating actually.

Penny Willow - can I ask what acid free coffee you found? I sure would like a cup of coffee now and then.

Kathy Kriston Funk
Whoops! I see you answered the question about the acid free coffee a few comments below. I’ll try that Tyler’s coffee. Thanks!

I've had serious burning in my throat for two months and had tried EVERYTHING ... but I had someone tell me to try oatmeal. Going on day two of almost no throat burning. It's still happening a bit. But I have literally eaten bites of oatmeal all throughout the day. Instead of grabbing Tums, Mylanta, or any antiacids...call it a coincidence but it's working. Thank goodness

How do u make your oatmeal??

Jenni Hostetler
I get the big tub of Quaker oats. A little bit of water and microwave them. Stove top is less mess... they've bubbled over a couple of times. I also made them with chocolate almond milk today! Delicious 😍 I hope this helps like it did for me!!

Mridu Kaushal Sharma
Jenni Hostetler thanks a ton ..will try

Jenni Hostetler
I truly hope it works for you just the same!! I'm going on day four of oatmeal all day!! Good luck! Let me know how it works out!!

I wish I could say I was perfect, but....I’m getting better. I have cheated a bit the past few days. I think the key is finding out what your trigger foods are. I thought it was crazy but it does work. I absolutely have to stay away from caffeine , chocolate (oh how I miss you 😢) and sadly bread (I miss you even more 😢😢) I have been doing well eating egg whites with spinach asparagus maybe some kale , half a avacado and 1 piece of Ezekiel bread , this type of bread does not bother me for some reason. Sometimes oatmeal. Lunch I usually have a salad with grilled chicken cucumbers and dark green leafy things, sometimes I will just have a sweet potato depends. Dinner is up in the air but I have been doing good not eating to close to bed time. I would like to know what others eat sometimes I feel like I eat the same thing all the time

Rachel E. Tucker
thank you for sharing with me :) Is there anything you substitute for your daily coffee? do herbal teas bother you as well?

Kristen Smith-Butman
Rachel E. Tucker yes I mainly drink decaf green tea that hasn’t been processed with chemicals , and a abundance or herbal teas, marshmallow tea which is good for your stomach, chamomile , throat coat tea which is good for your throat as well as your stomach . I gave up caffeine in February , it was super hard at first but once I got past the first week it was easy. I tried decaf coffee but I heard it is super acidic from the chemicals that make it decaf I stopped. I am looking for a coffee that is made decaf by Swiss water process.

Rachel E. Tucker
Great info! Thank you !

Kristen - Tyler’s acid free coffee is actually pretty good. I can drink it on an empty stomach before my meds. I get the ground decaf.

Kristen Smith-Butman
Penny Willow thanks I just looked them up , I have never heard of them. I am going to give them a try. I wish they had samples you could get to try.

Penny Willow
Kristen hopefully you live in the US. It's $30 postage for me in Oz - but since that price is the same no matter how many you get - I buy three bags at a time.

Oatmeal porridge with a little jam at 7, then youghurt with a banana at 9, for lunch a soup (in a cup) with no bites in it and add little cream. For dinner i eat rice, boiled chicken and some form of mild sauce where you use chicken broth, flour, butter and some salt. Then in the evening porridge againwith a banana or youghurt with a banana. Inbetwed you can drink at least two big glasses of water even if it feels hard. But not with your meals. If you get hungry inbetween or loose a lot of weight i recommend energydrinks from a pharmacy with lot of calories in them. Or energypowder you can get from your doctor to mix in your youghurt or soup. This diet made me better after 7 days to the point that i could add som few things. No cheating ;)

Penny Willow
People with reflux sure can't stick to low carb diets lol. I only eat carbs.
