What are your Trigger Foods for GERD?

What foods seem to be your trigger foods? I can't ever eat Mexican food and some Italian sausages are too rough for me to handle.

I guess it does depend on the individual, because if you look up GERD on the Internet, there can be list of foods that a person with the condition could have a reaction to. As you pointed out in your post, spicy foods seem to be a trigger for you. However, I never really had a problem when eating spicy foods.

One of my biggest triggers when I didn't have my GERD under control was coffee. I am a coffee drinker and every morning it got to the point where I would just be half way through my cup and would have a serious GERD attack. Once my doctor helped me get my GERD under control through medication and getting my hypertension under control (yes this can also effect GERD) I found that I could now drink coffee with no problem. I don't know if you are currently on medication for your GERD, if not perhaps this would be a good idea. If you are then perhaps just understanding that there are some foods you will need to stay away from is a good idea. GERD apparently isn't the same for everyone, perhaps this has to do with the fact that no two people are exactly alike so knowing what sets off your GERD is always a good thing to know.

Highly spicy foods are not good for me. So I try not to indulge in them, it's not worth it. Even spicy chicken wings are off limits. The blander the better.

Well, coffee is once again triggering an acid reflux attack with me. The thing is I enjoy my coffee in the morning. The things I will have to do to try to avoid an attack is only drink half a cup and to sip it slowly. Hopefully that will help and I won't have to stop drinking coffee all together.
