Your going to want to eliminate all acidic foods. No booze, no soda, drink water, unsweetened almond milk, decaf green tea. No Mexican food, no Italian food, no fast foods. No fried foods. No vinegar products, no apple cider vinegar, no tomato products. No OJ or lemons and no limes. Eat chicken breasts, turkey, tuna in water, baked fish is good. vegetables with no salt or pepper. Baked or mashed potatoes are good. Cut out sugar too. I bought the book “the acid watcher diet” off Amazon. This book gave me some great info. Try to stay away from gmo foods.Fresh is better and organic if you can afford it. Stay away from chocolate and mints. Stop eating 3 hrs before bed. Breakfast for me is usually cheerios with almond milk and health wise low acid coffee with almond milk as a creamer. Almond milk neutralizes acid. Ripe bananas are ok to eat. Melons are ok too. Eat whole grain wheat bread, oatmeal, shredded wheat and bran. I was diagnosed with acid reflux along with Barrett’s esophagus. On my last scope there was no sign of Barrett’s esophagus. So the low acid diet does work. Good luck! Any questions, just ask, lots of nice helpful people on this site.
Thank you so much. This is very helpful! Greatly appreciated as I am suffering and anxious which increases my symptoms.

Happy for you that there is no sign of Barrett's esophagus! Good for you.
You must have been disciplined in following the diet. I'll get the book
How do I sustain my weight on this diet? I don't want/need to lose weight.
For snacks try toasted wheat bread with natural peanut butter, try sea salted cashews or pistachios, Put mild cheddar slices on a chicken breast sandwich for added calories.
The best thing to do is to meet with a dietician who deals with digestive problems. They usually have lists of foods that won't make your irritation worse and will help you keep your weight. There are also many helpful diet books. Good luck.
This is very helpful, thank you! I was recently diagnosed with Barretts as well. Did you also take PPI's and aspirin to clear it up?
I'm on a strict low acid diet along with pantaprazole 40mg 1/2 hr. before supper. Do not take aspirin! Only tylenol for pain. I would say the low acid diet cleared it up. Remember, No soda, booze, low acid coffee only. No vinegar based products. Good luck!
