Has anyone here ever experienced reflux or heartburn from their diet? If so, which food(s) caused it? Do you now avoid these foods?

The foods will be different for everyone. Generally foods extremely high in fat -- fried foods, like overly done fried tofu, fakin' bacon, etc. could cause reflux and heartburn.

I have had it since switching up until a couple of days ago. I was under the impression it was because my stomache was used to having to work harder to digest my food, so it created more bile then I needed.

For me, milk chocolate has always been the no. 1 trigger for heartburn, even more so than deep fried buffalo wings. I was once puzzled as to why I had heartburn even when I ate 'mild' things like applesauce or unsalted pretzels, but refined grains and anything sugary are also triggers for many people, myself included.

To answer the OP's question, I don't experience heartburn. I'm not sure what it feels like, but I think I may have gotten it once since going vegan. It was after I ate spicy salsa. But I don't know if it was heartburn.
Sorry that I'm not much of help!

Yeah that spicy salsa can be bad news. I just had food allergy tests yesterday. And I tested positive for tomatoes. The doctor said it wasn't a severe reaction. And that the food shouldn't cause me any problems. But I'm going to give them up anyway as I have difficulty swallowing.

I know how you feel. I can't take most pills, and have to chew super-thoroughly. I buy chewable vitamins, in fact. Good times. Helps to avoid over-eating, but I get full faster than ever, so I still do that sometimes. That's when it's the worst, no matter what I eat.

Avoid booze (especially wine), chocolate, coffee, tomatoes, orange juice, and other high acid foods.

Garlic is great at giving me heartburn. I do use it much less than I would like, and when I do use it, I usually use the powdered instead of fresh. There are certain foods that set me off. I find when I don't exercise enough, eat too much, or drink too many fluids, I'm more prone to getting heartburn. But heartburn happens much less frequently now that I eat a 95% vegan diet.
