Hi everyone,I've suffered from GERD for a couple of years now and have tried everything. Better diet, exercise, meds, etc... and for me, nothing seemed to work except one thing: Eating less. Sounds simple, but it did the trick. (And I didn't eat a ton in the first place.) Now I eat just enough to feel only slightly full, then stop. I quit eating until I felt totally full. I also stopped eating small snacks. Now I eat a small breakfast, a small lunch, and a smaller dinner than I what I used to eat. After doing this for about a week, I actually started to feel really full on the smaller amounts of food I was eating and my GERD has all but stopped. It still bothers me a bit when I eat spicy foods, but not all the time. I can actually drink a soda without getting heartburn! Just thught I'd share!
