well i had been doing pretty well managing my gerd - lpr with special diet, small meals, head elevated sleeping, exercise-weight loss, no sinful food nor drink,,,you know the routine

and had been adding a new food, just to test, every once in a while

well...after three failures in a row, corn chips are definitely on my "i cant eat it" list

not that its a big deal... i can live without em...but my heart is still sad over the loss of oranges and orange juice...:( and will always miss the nightshade vegetables (fruits?) eggplant, tomatoes and potatoes...very sad indeed

what are some of your nemesis foods?

Anything and chocolate are my worst culprits and also two of my most favorite things to consume so it's very difficult for me to avoid them. Tomato sauce and anything citrus are just as bad..even after surgery they still give me heartburn so I am trying to stay I'd love to be able to enjoy them without the pain.

Try keeping a food journal to see what really triggers you.

I don't have a problem with the usual suspect foods. When I came up with my list: gelatin, maple syrup, brown sugar, dark chocolate, corn starch, any kind of packaged potatoes .... I googled my list with the words food intolerances and food allergies. I came up with sulfite sensitivity.

I can't eat most corn chips either, although I have no problem with fresh corn. It's the packaged foods that are my biggest problem. I get along fine if I cook from scratch, using real foods. I can eat tomatoes and potatoes just fine if I start with fresh ones.

thanks all above for the responses

i agree many of the do s and donts vary from person to person

and i agree that often whole foods like corn and potatoes are ok but then when processed into a snack they can become awefull for the les

there was some conversation earlier today about the mint family

i drink chamomile tea and gensing and ginger tea, too with good result (dont make it too strong)...but when i made tea with the mint we grow in our garden...deadly for the les
