I think it takes some time to get the rhythm of this. I believe that size of meals is more important than what you eat because the objective is to reduce pressure on the LES. There is little reasearch done on diets and GERD. I follow a lower carb and lower fiber diet called Fast Tract. I eat scrambled eggs for breakfast, homemade vegetable soup for lunch with lots of protein, and a lot of meal salads for dinner. I cook in large quantities so I can have a small bowl of it anytime. Snacks include cheese and almonds, but not too many almonds because of the fiber. I eat yogurt with fruit most days, sweetening my own with Splenda. Think about
side dishes in restaurants and keep them on hand. I try to eat something every three hours.
I drink mostly water or tea, which I think is best to sip slowly after the meal so I don't fill my stomach too much. I work part time, and bring plastic containers of food I can eat cold or easily heat in the microwave. My weight is also healthy and stable but I check it often to make sure.
Food intolerances commonly contribute to GERD. You might want to try a couple of weeks without wheat to see if that reduces your symptoms. Or maybe you are symptom free on meds and satisfied with that.
