Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) can be a challenge for a lot of folks. For some people being overweight can be a trigger. For others it may be certain foods that are problematic. The good news is that information on the Dr. Gourmet website can help you with both food triggers and weight loss.
There are recipes in this GERD section that use ingredients that might trigger GERD symptoms for one person but not another. For example, many people will have problems with raw onions and peppers, but they are fine if the onions and peppers are cooked. Careful experimentation with what works for you is the key. It may not be the onions and peppers in Mexican food that bother you, for example, but the fact that they are usually cooked with more fat. Or it could be spices such as cayenne pepper. I have included a Fajita recipe that cuts the amount of fat used to cook the onions. It also eliminates the cayenne pepper, and this might work for you.
If you have GERD / Acid Reflux, our online guide, Eating to Prevent GERD, can help. This guide includes information on how to eat, recommendations for lifestyle change, and Tummy Tips to help you live a pain-free life and prevent Acid Reflux.
