  • Sushi, processed meats, unpasturized cheeses and milk -Feta, and Bleu included- , rare beef, raw hotdogs and deli meat --read up on Listeriosis- and unwashed fruits and vegetables.

  • Any type of fish
    Raw meat/ or unpasteurized dairy (it's a given I know)
    Fried foods (they won't do your heartburn any good)
    Last for me was anything that was highly processed

    Try to eat fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, yogart, drink plenty of water and I know it sounds really strange but if your sick to your stomach you might try chocolate milk.

  • No raw meat of any kind, even fish. Spicy food, it gives you terrible heartburn. Deli meats.

  • Some fish, you can find out from your doctor which particular ones, hot dogs, bacon and deli meats

  • The doctors will tell you to avoid too too much sugar and say no caffeine. I can not have caffeine anyway so that does not bother me. And watch the consumption of protein. And pretty much other than that you can eat what your body tells you. That is what I do.

  • I eat anything in moderation and avoid nothing. It is obviously a personal decision but one that I am comfortable with.
