I believe my symptoms are reduced by eating smaller meals, but I do have to eat more frequently, and I do not need to lose any weight. My workday doesn't allow for several lunch breaks. Also, a lot of reflux-friendly foods tend to be low-calorie, which does not make them ideal when you have to get some quick energy that will hold you for several hours. Is there a better solution than bringing a duffel bag full of celery sticks and melon balls to work everyday? Would nuts or dried fruit be good, natural alternatives? What snack foods have you found that will stave off hunger effectively without causing acid reflux?

Protein Shakes - They have high calorie content and don't contain gluten or milk.

These are great ideas! Thanks! I'm interested that you both are gluten free. I don't think I have a problem with gluten. Is gluten widely suspected to cause GERD?

Today's wheat is very hard on the digestive system. I try and make it as easy as possible to digest food to decrease the amount of acid produced. GERD and IBS sufferers may benefit from going gluten and lactose free.

I have oat cakes or dried fruit, ginger biscuits or thin rye crackers (I am wheat free but not gluten free). I gain weight during flare ups as I have to eat to relieve symptoms!!

Popcorn! no butter though... Melons, bananas, also I like to eat cereal for snacks. I try to go for the rice based cereals like rice crispies and fruity pebbles.

Carrot cakes really good too... haha. I wish more fruits had a ph above 4... I love raspberries and blueberries garr to acidic.

Also, what does everyone drink!? Obviously we can't drink soda or Gatorade...

I've been sticking with almond milk and water... Would like to add something else that's good tasting. I will often make banana/melon/mango smoothies which are good too. I ended up buying the bullet blender... It works great for cupsized smoothies.
