I have been diagnosed with Gastritus. I cant really eat anything. Any ideas on what diet I should be on. All I was told by the doctor was chicken noodle soup and ginger ale or 7up. What else can I eat. I was told after 7 days it should go away but it hasn't (definately has gotten better but not gone and its been weeks now). I am on acid reducing medication, Im scared to get off it obviously as the pain was excrutiating. Any ideas?

YumasGirl, please read my response to "too much gas after gallbladder removed" it is going to be the same response to you.
I have personally found that if I cut out eating foods fried in vegetable oil and or peanut oils and just stick to stuff that I do at home with Olive oil, coconut oil or grapeseed oil then my gassiness gets better.
Then when I stay away from fattier meats, processed meats and dairy and grains(bread, rice, beans, peanuts and peanut butter), it gets even better.
I drink almond milk, use mashed avocado or homemade mayo instead of storebought salad dressing for eggsalad eat whole eggs, and plenty of fresh fruits and veggies, and heart healthy nuts and it seems to calm down.
Mine is about 75% paleo diet. You may want to google it and find out if it's something you could at least try to help with your gastritus.
