Acid Reflux Problem? Trim The Fat by Avoiding Health.com's 50 Fattiest Foods in America
If you suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, or GERD, high fat foods can be your worst enemy.
Foods with a high fat content sit in your stomach longer, which results in higher acid production. Additionally, larger meals with a higher fat content can also stretch your stomach and cause your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) - the ring of muscle at the bottom of your esophagus that helps prevent acid from traveling upward - to relax, causing an excess of acid to move into your esophagus.
