Hard to predict: GERD is triggered by many things including diet. Caffeine or nicotine, reclining after meals & acidic foods are all contributing factors. We are all capable of having "heartburn" on occasion but true GERD is a pattern that only some will develop. Your change in diet sounds like a contributing factor to your symptoms. Time will tell.
