I had Pancreatitis,,,,,,, My GI doctor told me to cut back on all Carbohydrates... eat mostly lean meat,, lots of veggies and very small amounts of fruits... only about 20 grams of carbs per day, not processed..  Veggies have carbs but on a smaller level then a piece of whole wheat bread. Also be mindful of the drinks,  no sugar is allowed , I drink mostly diet drinks, water, and equal in my coffee.   Foods to avoid:  yogurt, milk(lonly a cup a day), soft cheese, bread, cookies, donuts all the junk food. candy, chocolate. avoid processed meat like bologna, hotdogs, etc.   Foods that are fine: all veggies except corn, mostly colorful veggies, two small pieces of fruit a day . lean meats  like chicken, pork, fish .. eat avacados they help lower trig too.  also take 3000 to 4000mg omega -3- you will lose wt on this diet for sure.  make sure you eat protein at every meal to help keep you muscle.
