Best Diet For Acid Reflux


Q: I've recently been diagnosed with a stress related inbalance in my digestive acids. Although I understand that restricting my diet is necessary in order to stop any aggravation, I have only been told things I can't eat, this has left me confused as to what I can actually eat. Can I please have some food recommendations for food I can eat to ease this problem.


A:   A diet rich in fiber is recommended when there is an increased level of digestive acids. Some common food that you can take include :
i) fruits like apple, banana
ii) Vegetables - potato, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, green beans and peas.
iii) Meat - ground beef, chicken breast (skinless), egg whites, fish (no added fat)
iv) Grains - bread (multi grain), cereal, bran or oatmeal, crackers, rice (brown or white)
v) Salads with low fat dressing
vi) Deserts - fat free cookies, jellys and red licorice.
It is advise that you should eat at least 5 small meals in a day and have early dinner. Drink water after every meal. Drinking a small glass of water can help dilute any stomach acid that can be just working its way towards your esophagus. I hope this helps, take care.
