Gastritis/IBS diet

Hey, I've been struggling to find a balanced diet for Gastritis/IBS. Fat is supposed to be avoided, but so are big meals, and I'm finding it really challenging to meet even a bare minimum of calories each day without constantly stuffing myself to the brim with food, let alone micronutrients. I always need to resort to many tablespoons of avocado oil or peanut/almond butter to get there. Have any of you solved this little puzzle?

    Then the carnivore diet is for you. Search online how it healed people with colitis etc if it can heal them then sure it can heal IBS.

    You may want to meet with a professional experienced with FODMAPs. These are short-chain carbohydrates that may lead to digestive issues in some individuals (see Cronometer's blog - This elimination diet is considered the gold-standard treatment for IBS.

    Fat can cause digestive problems since it stays in the stomach the longest, potentially leading to bloating, gas, and loose stools.

    I find clients benefit from eating 6 small meals per day with low-moderate fat intake and avoiding gas producing foods/items like gum, very hot beverages, straws, etc.

    Please let me know if you have any follow-up questions.
