Help ease heartburn

We all have our excuses whether it’s a cheat day, cheeky weekend treats or a celebratory meal out with friends where our healthy eating plan has flown straight out the window.

If you’re experiencing symptoms of heartburn and indigestion try these tips to prevent and relieve your symptoms.

Everything in moderation
You don’t need to stop indulging altogether, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying everything in moderation. Enjoy your favourites but be mindful of the effect too much can have on your body.
Slow down
Eating too quickly can increase heartburn, so take your time eating and enjoy mealtimes. Feeling rushed when you’re eating can cause the stomach to produce more acid.
The most important meal of the day
Keep the pastries to a minimum at breakfast. Instead, have a light but healthy meal, such as oatmeal, fresh fruit or scrambled eggs to give you the energy you need during the day and keep you fuller for longer.
Keep hydrated
Drink plenty of water. Not only is drinking water good for you, but it also helps you to distinguish whether you’re really hungry.
Get active
You don’t have to run a marathon, just a nice walk after lunch and dinner will do. Taking a walk after eating will help your food go down, add to your steps, no need for your running shoes. Being outside also means you won’t be lured to the snack cupboard on an advert break.
