Gastritis, ulcers and diet: no one knows what the f*ck they're talking about

There doesn't seem to be any agreement or cohesive agreement in regards to gastritis, ulcers in relation to diet. Half the stuff out there says no dairy, other stuff says yogurt and raw milk are essential.
A diet rich in grains, no grains. Meat, no meat. Mostly raw vegetables, nothing raw. Juice, don't juice. High fruit, no fruit! Fruit fast for 3 days, wait don't touch fruit! Potatoes, wait no starches! LOW FAT! Wait you need to coat your stomach with healthy fats!
Seriously WTF??? The more i've researched, the more i'm convinced that nobody knows what the hell is good to eat for treating gastritis. I for one, have no idea anymore how to deal with my condition.

Hi there!

Well, the dietary modification with gastritis works on two simple principles 1. Avoid anything that could trigger increased acid secretion/ inflammation. 2. Items that promote healing. While fruits and vegetables are good for health and healing, citrus fruits can increase the acid secretion and are best avoided on an empty stomach. Likewise milk would generally act as an antacid, while a few fermented products may have acid content and are best avoided. While proteins decrease the transit time of food, carbohydrates and fasts increase the transit time. Spices and deep fried food is bets avoided. Small frequent meals work better than large single meals. In short the diet has to be balanced between various food components and adjusted to avoid irritation to the gastric mucosa. It might be a good idea to consult a nutritionist/ dietician for suggestion of an appropriate diet plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
