It is important that you don't eat too quickly if you suffer from acid reflux. The slower you eat, the better! Not only will it allow you to begin to break down the food in your stomach, it will ensure that you feel full when you really are full, something that doesn't happen if you eat too quickly.
If you notice that spicy foods cause you problems, do not eat anything with peppers or chilies in them. This will help to prevent heartburn. At the very least, reduce the frequency with which you eat these items. You should notice an immediate difference in the way that you feel.
Do not drink when you are eating. Instead, drink during the times between meals. This can significantly help you manage hunger pains, because you are likely thirsty rather than hungry. If you stop drinking during meals, you will notice that your stomach doesn't bulge and you experience no acid issues.
