Every Food You Should Avoid if You have GERD

Fatty Foods are Not Your Friend

Fatty Foods are Not Your Friend

The body tends to break down foods that are high in fat more slowly, when compared to other foods, such as certain vegetables and fruits. The longer fatty foods remain in your stomach, the more acid will secrete into the stomach, which is the body's attempt to break down the food. The continuous buildup of acid will eventually cause acid reflux.

Fatty foods to avoid:

  • Foods that have been fried
  • Foods that contain high amounts of sugar
  • Greasy foods
