    What foods should you avoid?

    • Acidic foods - citrus fruits and tomato products may trigger your heartburn because they take longer to digest and increase the amount of stomach acid produced.
    • Heartburn beverages - coffee, alcohol, carbonated drinks, acidic fruit juices and tomato juice may cause heartburn. Many of these drinks also contain excess calories that can contribute to weight gain. Instead, opt for non-citrus juices, water and tea.
    Try not to eat at least 2 hours before bed, and keep your portions small. Eat regular, small meals as you should never feel full. You should lose weight if your weight is too high as the excess kilos can exacerbate the heartburn.
