I do believe that weight can cause GERD because before I lost my 43 pounds, I had it a lot. I finally almost rid myself of it when I lost the weight and I am still working on losing weight. Also figuring the triggers, like spicy food or eating something like Pizza (Pep/Sausage) shortly before going to bed triggers it for me. By making small changes - they make large changes in your GERD situation. Like an engine heading into the red zone. You make quick adjustments and the gauge goes back out of the red zone. You ignore it, it just gets worse. One of those adjustments for me was losing weight.
