Foods

What foods if any bother your stomach mine are eggs,bananas,cherries,cherry tomatoes,cucumbers and grapes
 
Peanut Butter used to bother me, and I stopped using it. Funny thing is I love peanuts and can eat the nuts as much as I want without problem. I love and eat lots of everything you mentioned. Alcohol does not agree with me and makes me sick easily so I quit that early on.

I do avoid many other foods but not because they bother my stomach. It's beause I don't like the taste or texture or just even the look of them. Very picky in that respect.
 
I was always pretty much an omnivore. There's a few exceptions that were socially unacceptable in the world I grew up in but they're little things understood by most people these days, or at least accepted.

The strong smell of vinegar makes me choke, almost like an asthma attack although I'm not asthmatic. So if a bunch of people unwrap a big serve of fish and chips and pour vinegar all over it I have to leave the room. I get that same gasp of breathlessness from the smell of the tomato sauce MacDonalds use.

I hate peas. Only cooked peas though, I love them raw fresh out of the pod. The same with beans, I love them raw and can't eat them cooked, it's a texture thing. Australia is very much like England in many ways, most poms will feel sorry for me here. I can't eat baked beans on toast. I can't eat baked beans. The thought of a Mexican restaurant is a nightmare, I couldn't possibly do that in real life.
 
With GERD, pretty much anything rich with animal fats and grease. Puts steak and most forms of poultry effectively off my menu permanently. Also a lot of foods that are overly spicy. Though it's not a particularly consistent list of things that can be toxic to me.

Going out to eat in a restaurant can be unsettling, as much of their food has so much deliberate fat in it for enhanced flavoring. Generally around the holidays I take Nexium or Omeprazole to help.

I have to be careful not to consume too much fiber in a single meal. I can have some, but not as much as I used to when I was younger. Preservatives like monoglycerides can cause me issues. That can make eating out a bit problematic.
 
The pizza I ate last night :) (from a pizzeria - way too fat, or maybe I just ate too much of it, but I was really hungry, hadn't eaten since breakfast)

I can't function without omeprazol. I actually woke up choking on my stomach acid one night. By morning I had a high fever. Dr told me I had aspiration pneumonia. I sleep with elevated upper body and spend most of the night on the left side since then.

But no particular food seems to bother my stomach
