Can I ever eat my favorite foods again?

Hi there!

A month ago, my ENT told me I may have LPR (Due to voice hoarseness) and put me on a 40mg Proton Pump Inhibitor called Omeprazole.

He told me to stay away from spicy foods, chocolate, and anything fatty or fried until my vocal cords healed.
Trouble is, THESE ARE MY FAVORITE KINDS OF FOOD!

It's hard to tell what affects me because I don't get heartburn like regular GERD.

I'm terrified I'll never get to taste them again, even when I've healed. Is there any way I can eat a candy bar or a pizza and not worry about damage? Even if it's just once or twice a week?

Thank you for reading.
