About

My name is Mary and I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Gastroparesis, a potentially debilitating chronic digestive disorder, in February of 2010.  Needless to say, as a trained chef I was devastated.  Can Gastroparesis and Gastronomy exist simultaneously?  That is a question I’m attempting to answer one meal at a time while adhering to a low-fat/low fiber diet and lifestyle.  Join me as I attempt to step outside my comfort zone while enjoying healthy and tasty GP friendly meals.  I’m not a Registered Dietitian or medical professional.  All suggestions are based on my personal experience with GP.  Any comments, suggestions and recipes are welcome and appreciated.  Eat well!  Be well!  Enjoy!

UPDATE: I’m no longer blogging or maintaining this site but have left the posts, recipes and links up with the hope that my journey may be helpful to others. This blog is no longer being updated or comments monitored.

  7. Hi Norman, those of us who were given a list of Gastroparesis-friendly foods were given a version of the “Gastroparesis Diet for Delayed Stomach Emptying” there is a link to it at the bottom right side of page on the blog just click on it. This particular version is divided into 3 steps depending on how severe GP symptoms are. BTW, just because a food is listed GP-friendly doesn’t mean its friendly for all of us. It takes a little trial and error for each of us to figure out what works and what doesn’t. The basic premise is to eat low fat/low fiber (but NOT no fat/no fiber). Two other blogs with great info and links are My Broken Stomach and Living with Gastroparesis-both links are at the bottom right side of the page. Be Well, Mary

  8. I’m so very happy I found this site. It’s been an interesting journey to get the right combination of nutrients and calories to manage weight loss as well as avoid the flare ups of this oh so lovely stomach disease. Thank you for your hard work and willingness to share with us.
