@kanaazpereira thank you for the link! That’s pretty much the diet I’ve been following. Could you ask the dietician if she thinks it’s ok to eat high fiber veggies like beans if they are cooked until they are practically mush and then puréed ??? Or would that still be too much fiber for someone with Gastroparesis? I don’t want to ever have another bezoar.

@stubeckj70 Bless your heart! I agree with you that finding the right diet when you have multiple conditions is virtually impossible! Like @fourof5zs said, we’re all different and so you have to go thru a lot of trying this and that to see what works for you. I’m afraid to even try some of the foods that work for her — baked beans and chopped nuts — because of the high fiber content.

My doc initially had me taking Colace and miralax twice a day to prevent constipation. That was way too much. After a lot of experimenting, I figured out what works best for me: I take colace twice a day. And then if 2 days go by without “going”, the next day I take 1 dose of Miralax which ALWAYS results in me “going”.

@waslatter Did you say your A1c numbers improved with your new Gastroparesis diet? Wow! Mine went up from 5.7 to 6.2. I need to be doing whatever you’re doing. What kind of fiber do you eat? I think my extremely low fiber Gastroparesis eating definitely raised my A1c.

I’m confused about the Gastroparesis diet I was given when diagnosed last fall because a bezoar was found in my stomach. The diet is very similar to the one that Mayo has posted under Gastroparesis. My first question is about vegetables. The diet says no raw vegetables (of course) but well cooked vegetables are okay.
But the next entry is to avoid fibrous vegetable such as broccoli.
Does this mean that I can’t eat broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, turnip greens, spinach, green beans, etc. even if I cook them to death?

Thanks for the replies @doodle75bug and
@@kanaazpereira and @suemer and @astaingegerdm and @coquifoife !!
I eat small amounts of food all day long like mentioned.
I don’t take any medication for this.
My diagnosis is moderate Gastroparesis ( likely from Nissan Fundoplication for a huge hernia)
I don’t have vomiting very often. I’m so sorry for those of you who do.
I would love to hear more about what y’all eat!!!!!

I have type2 diabetes controlled by diet. I went from eating nuts and berries and celery and whole-wheat bread and beans and every kind of green vegetable imaginable to eating saltine crackers, canned peaches, cottage cheese, white bread, white rice, and mashed potatoes!
So from very high fiber very low carb to very low fiber very high carb. Amazingly my T2 is still under control. Probably because I eat so little.
I’m very excited to cook the heck out of some fresh broccoli!
Let me know what else you think is ok!

Thank you @suemer for the information about Iberogast and about equate plus! Boost doesn’t taste very good to me so I’m looking forward to trying the equate. What favor do you prefer?

@suemer how do you cook your green vegetables? Roast like @hopeful33250 ? Or steam? Or in water? I used to eat roasted vegetables but I haven’t since switching to the Gastroparesis diet. I’ve been afraid they would not be soft enough. I didn’t know if asparagus would be considered like broccoli — a food the diet said I should avoid.
