Dine Like the Europeans Do
Build in time after eating meals—a habit that can help you digest your food properly. By eating too fast—wolfing down a cheeseburger at a drive thru, for instance—can increase your chance of heartburn. Eat healthy meals and avoid rushing through them. Enjoy leisurely dinner conversation with family and friends. If you're dining alone, read the paper, call a friend or go for a casual stroll afterward to aid digestion.
