Always had heart palpitations but stopped having them completely for 3 weeks but now it has come back again. What causes this? Is it to do with diet?

In brief: Holter monitor

If you experience frequent and bothersome palpitations, you should document what your heart rhythm is at the time of your symptoms by wearing a holter monitor for 24hours.
You may be having benign premature beats which are made worse by caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, stress and anxiety. Your md can order this test.
