Is the first meal of the day always the worse? How do you help that?
I usually can only eat 1 bigger meal a day nothing really in between tho
what time of day? No snacks?
9am an the 23 of June no snacks
I can't eat a meal until a few hours after I've been up. I start my day with a protein shake. My dietitian says it's normal for the stomach to slow down even more while you're sleeping and take a while to "wake up" , says it's typical for her gastroparesis patients to not be able to eat breakfast.
Don’t make the first meal of the day an actual meal. My doctors have advised me that small meals or snack would be better especially since I have gastoparesis. So example meal : a bowl of fruit and some water. Or a pice of toast and 2 scramble eggs (or however you take them). That may be something you can handle and it won’t feel forced.
I eat a smoothie or Popsicle first that seems to help a little bit
