A:

To help prevent symptoms of GERD, avoid or limit alcohol, caffeine, and foods that trigger symptoms. Eat small meals, and avoid late evening meals—within two to three hours of reclining or going to bed. If necessary, tailor your diet to lose excess weight, focusing on healthy fruit and vegetables, lean proteins, and plenty of water.
