Eating after stomach shrinkage?

Hey all, I'm pretty sure mystomach may have shrunk due the fact I have not been able to eat for the past three or four days because of ulcers and whatnot in my mouth, I try drinking milk but it makes my stomach really sore and I'm wondering what the heck I should do to get my stomach to accept food?

Re: Eating after stomach shrinkage?

Not eating for 3 or 4 days means that your body has been consuming its own muscle to support certain vital functions. That's because protein is needed to keep you alive. The likely consequence is that your body became more and more acidic. That's my opinion on what is likely.

If that's true, it might be helpful to eat some foods that will restore your pH balance. That would be almost anything other than animal protein and sugar. Make a salad, for example. Use items like lettuce, tomato, cucumber, celery etc.. Then use olive oil and lemon juice as a dressing. (Lemons and tomatoes metabolize as alkaline and are therefore good.)

Of course you will need to eat some protein but keep it to the minimum requirement. Don't overdo it.

Re: Eating after stomach shrinkage?

Start with small portions of easy to digest foods. I'm not sure how lemon juice would do with the mouth ulcers, but maybe a small bowl of unsweetened oatmeal.

Re: Eating after stomach shrinkage?

Thanks for the replies people. I have restored my default diet through gradual reintroduction, my stomach can't take what it used to but I think that's good, it'll encourage to eat better.
