Gastro-oesophageal reflux (GOR) occurs when the stomach contents including acid move back up into the oesophagus. Patients usually describe their symptoms as heartburn or indigestion. Sufferers often report increased reflux after large fatty or spicy meals, particularly when eaten close to bedtime. GOR is more common in overweight individuals, but those of an acceptable weight can also suffer. Chronic reflux can result in oesophagitis (inflamed oesophagus), further increasing sensitivity to acid and foods. So today we are sharing a healthy eating guide for reflux:

  • Breakfast - a bowl of high fibre cereal such as untoasted muesli, weetbix or porridge with fresh or tinned fruit and reduced fat or skim milk and/ or wholemeal or grain toast with minimal margarine and honey or vegemite. Tea.
  • Lunch - sandwiches made with wholemeal bread with low fat cheeses, lean meats, tinned fish and salad. Skip the margarine. Tinned or fresh fruit with low fat yoghurt. Water, tea or diluted juice.
  • Main Meal - chicken and vegetable stir fry with minimal oil. Served with steamed rice. Iced water with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
