Foods to Avoid
Depending on your condition, the intake of the following foods should be minimized. Better still; eliminate them from your diet.
Breads and cereals with high-fat content like biscuits, croissants and Granola-type cereals, including snack crackers, bran cereals and bread baked with nuts and dried fruit should be avoided.
Vegetables are generally easy on your stomach, but avoid raw vegetables, corn, broccoli, cauliflower, green peppers, cabbage, turnips, tomatoes and onions.
Exclude fruits like pineapples, lemon, grapefruit, oranges and their juices. If you’re fond of consuming berries and figs, cut them out, too.
As for milk and dairy products, exclude whole milk, chocolate milk, evaporated milk and cheese with high milk content.
Stay away from highly seasoned meat and fish and the fried type. Watch out for canned anchovies, sardines, luncheon meat and sausages.
High–fat snacks like chips, buttered popcorn, cakes and cookies and most sweets and deserts should also be kept at bay. Don’t forget carbonated beverages and the caffeine-based ones like coffee and tea as well.
Seasonings and condiments like barbeque sauce, chili sauce, pickles, chili powder and other spicy stuff have an adverse effect on your digestive tract.
To round up, quit smoking and drinking.
