Can a Ketogenic Diet Help People with Acid Reflux?
Take Home Message
It appears that ameliorating GERD and acid reflux has less to do with what you put in your mouth—antacids—and more to do with what you don’t put in your mouth: large amounts of carbohydrate.
If you’re living with discomfort and reduced quality of life from acid reflux, and food has gone from a pleasure to a pain, consider trying a low-carb or ketogenic diet.
You’ve got nothing to lose except maybe a few excess pounds, your reflux, and perhaps even your antacid prescription. If you’ve been on prescription antacids for a significant length of time, it is not advised to quit them cold-turkey. Find a physician who can help you get started with a low-carb approach and wean off your medication safely.
