A:

Eating acidic, fatty, fried, minty or spicy foods can be problematic for people with GERD. Foods to avoid include chocolate, citrus, garlic, onions, and tomato-based sauces. Drinks containing alcohol or caffeine can also trigger heartburn. Eating too much food at once or too close to bedtime also can aggravate GERD.
