This recommended stomach ulcer diet includes a couple of minor adjustments to your lifestyle, as well as some small but sensible changes in your eating habits. This ulcer diet is more of a guide that will keep you aware of what foods are good, or bad, for your ulcers - it is that simple.
We are NOT in favor of a strict day-by-day diet for ulcers at all - diets are so hard to stick to and who needs the additional stress of 'breaking your diet' anyway?
In the past, doctors were advising all patients with ulcers to get their stress levels down and gave them a really bland stomach ulcer diet which had no spicy, and fatty or acidic foods. Years ago it was proved that an ulcer diet like this was actually ineffective for treating or avoiding stomach ulcers. Good news for the all you spice lovers!
While a bland diet may be ineffective as a treatment, it is also completely harmless - so if bland is your flavor and it makes you feel better, then stay with it by all means.
There are no hard and fast rules here. Various foods will affect various people in various ways, even if those foods are actually recommended in an ulcer diet.

It is important to remember the main cause of ulcers is H. pylori and the continuous use of NSAIDS. An ulcer diet alone is not going to fix your ulcer - it is only a supplement to the ulcer treatment prescribed.*
There are some foods that can really aggravate ulcer symptoms and delay the healing process. The level of aggravation differs from person to person. For instance, you may have a mild reaction to a particular food that is affecting someone more harshly.
Also remember that over-the-counter drugs and antacids only offer short term relief of the symptoms of acid reflux and stomach ulcers. These medications will only mask the symptoms - they will not, and cannot repair the damage caused by the ulcer. real problem.
Short term fixes usually do more harm than good - in that short window period where you get some relief, you will be under the impression that your ulcer is cured or under control. This is usually when you tend to 'let go', relax, and maybe indulge in the foods and drinks that you know you should be avoiding.
GOLDEN RULE NO. 2 - Rather try a vegetarian diet for a while to reduce inflammation and stop consuming ANY food that you can feel is aggravating your condition.
