What should I eat on a peptic ulcer?

They haven't given me a diet plan.

You should eat foods that are non-irritating when you have a peptic ulcer. Try to avoid caffeine, spicy foods, chocolate, smoking cigarettes, and acidic foods. Also some people find that mint irritates their ulcer, but others find that it helps. Basically listen to your body.

Don't eat fried, spicy, or citrus foods. Eat low fat foods. Eat several small meals a day instead of three large meals. Eat fruits and vegetables with lots of fiber. Avoid tomato based foods. Cut down on coffee, tea, and carbonated beverages. Avoid chocolate products. Eat whole grains and leafy vegetables.

Some folks can eat whatever they want with a peptic ulcer, but if you have one that is severe some foods will irritate the ulcer. Most peptic ulcer diets reduce spicy and acidic food intake and increase food intake of foods rich in fiber such as fruits and vegetables.
