Acid Reflux and Your DietWritten by Dave Lavinsky
Continued from page 1
So what foods are safe to eat? The key qualities in heartburn-friendly foods, for most people, are low fat and non-spicy. So, with that in mind you can probably guess that leafy greens and broccoli, lean cuts of grilled meat, egg whites, low-fat cheeses like feta, apples and bananas, multi-grain breads, and low-fat salad dressings are good choices. Junk food? Occasionally, but with caution, choose fat free cookies, baked potato chips, or red licorice. A good exercise to do if you suffer from heartburn regularly is to create a food diary and log your meal intake for 2 or 3 weeks. Then note each time you experience heartburn in order to target foods you need to avoid.
In addition to making better food choices, consider changing your portion perception. Overeating is another acid reflux aggravator. Exercise caloric conscientiousness and choose to skip that second helping or fatty side dish, eat slow and drink plenty of water. Living without heartburn is within anyone’s grasp, and shouldn’t require drastic medical treatment. Simple, reasonable modifications in your eating habits can do wonders for quelling acid reflux, not to mention improving overall health.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) recommends choosing a bariatric center that completes at least 125 bariatric surgeries per year. According to ACS, well-equipped centers will typically have two or more bariatric surgeons on staff, and highly experienced surgeons would be certified by American Board of Surgery and complete at least fifty bariatric operations per year.
There are bariatric surgery centers located across entire country. Prominent bariatric surgery centers include Alsam Bariatric Center, Michigan Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence P.C., University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Hackensack Bariatric Surgery Center, Bariatric Institute of Kentucky, and California Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery’s Advanced Bariatric Surgery Center of Fresno, among many others.
