I had the same issues, eating 3 medium meals would make me suffer through pain throughout the day. I bought a mini-fridge for my office and keep snack foods in it.....I eat maybe 10 times a day! About once an hour just eat some fruit, crackers, or snack-bars. You can still get all of your calories in without big meals. When dining out, eat 1/3 of your meal, box up the rest and enjoy a few hours later. It feels like all you do is eat, but do it while doing other tasks. Eat while reading, watching tv, I eat during company meetings:) As for the high cholesterol....best advice, become a vegetarian. They have little to no cholesterol, live longer lives, and avoid many other health complications. For a very good book on nutrition, try: Diet for a New America by John Robbins. As for GERD, like teri said, the best place is the internet.
