If you get acid reflux, the best thing you can do is to eat less – and eat slowly. That’s the word from gastroenterologist, Dr. Marie Borum. She says people who get frequent heartburn are better off eating 5 smaller meals a day than 3 big ones.
And after a big meal, try not to lie down. But if you do, lie on your left side, which enables your stomach to empty properly. That way, less acid will back up into your esophagus and cause burning.
