What food should you avoid when eating out and have an ulcer?

I was recently diagnosed with an ulcer and want to protect my stomach when I go out to eat, I know there are foods I should avoid.

Eating out or at home with an ulcer should not make any difference. The diet you are on to heal your ulcer, applies no matter where the situation takes you. Avoiding the obvious causes of pain such as soda and any acidic food is your best curse of action when dining out.

What to avoid is personal. Be mindful of your intake of highly spiced foods. Elminate caffeine and alcohol, which aggravate an ulcer, and elmiinate smoking, which impedes healing. Milk and milk products encourage acid secretions, so note how you are affected.

A generalized list of foods to avoid: tomato or tomato based foods, fried foods such as french fries or chicken strips, highly seasoned or spicy foods such as jambalaya, garlic bread, hot wings, citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, or limes, and anything else that may be irritating to you when eating at home.

I would avoid greasy and fattening foods, such as things cooked in butter and grease or that have been deep fried. I would choose things that are baked or fresh foods.
