Urban Meyer Health Problems? Top 10 Foods That Cause Heartburn

One time, we spent an excruciating 45 minutes at a family dinner thinking a tapeworm was chewing up our insides. Turns out we just had a mean case of heartburn.

Maybe Urban Meyer has the same problem.

Saturday, the University of Florida's Gators football team's head coach resigned from the football program for undefined health related reasons.

A day later, Urban changed his mind and decided to stay on board, but to take a leave of absence of indeterminate length starting after the Gators' Sugarbowl game against Cincinnati later this week.

So what's up with Urban Meyer's health? We don't know, but if it has got anything to do with heartburn here's our advice to him.

These are our top ten foods that cause heartburn.

10. Chili Cheese Fries

Overeating is a leading, contributing factor to heartburn.

2. Deep Fried Candy Bars

For most people, the opportunity to order these doesn't come around too often, but the deep fried fat and chocolate content make these a prime driver for heartburn.

1. Eating Before Bed

If you ever saw the "Cliff's Nightmare" episode of The Cosby Show then you know that a hoagie sandwich before bed can really mess with your brain, but lying down on a full stomach can also cause acid reflux, heartburn's mercenary force.

We hope Urban Meyer reads this list and takes note. Even if his health problems have nothing to do with heartburn we here at Short Order feel this information may benefit the coach and his football program.
