According to the current theory, fast food that is greasy is not good for Gerd. I never eat it. When I was a teenager in Brooklyn, we had grilled muffins with butter and jam (choice of orange jam = marmalade (spelling??) or grape jelly. We also ate english muffins with same choice. You could choose to have your muffin plain. We always had coffee or iced coffee.
Caffeine is supposed to be really hard on your spinter muscle. Can't you find decaf soda in the grocery store? I am eating ice cream occasionally as a meal for my bleeding ulcer. Have to eat four meals a day but am losing weight.
To be a perfect GERD patient you must be slim and trim and not drink caffeinated beverages. Especially at night 3 or 4 hours before sleeping, you should only have necessary water and no food.
I am overweight but have reduced my caffeine level to 2 cups a day.
