Can anyone tolerate garlic or onions?
It's been 5 months since I've had any garlic (raw or cooked) and I'm totally craving it. I've had a few pieces of sweet onions here and there. Has anyone been able to tolerate these food items even once in a while? Supposedly I had an ulcer that has healed but for some reason I still need to eat a bland diet for my stomach to feel ok.

- for some reason I don't have any trouble with onions. I love sweet onions and eat them raw usually but don't like garlic that much so can't say for sure if that would bother me. The few times I've had it it hasn't done anything bad.
The worse culprets for me are carbonation, alcohol, and juices.#1; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:26:00 GMT
- I haven't every had problems with either in moderation. If you are having cravings for something like that, maybe you should just have a tiny little bit to start, see what it does to you, then go from there, upping them a little more until you feel comfortable that there won't be any problems with them#2; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:27:00 GMT
- garlic is usually fine for me.. as for onions I'm ok with most kinds if they are sauted or cooked, but I can only handle sweet onions if it's raw.. and only in small quantities!#3; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:28:00 GMT
- It's good to hear that others can tolerate these - I'm going to try some as I'm so tired of bland food.#4; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:29:00 GMT

I did have some garlic last night and did not have any problems. I am so tierd og bland food that I am trying to re enter some others intp my diet. I still suffer with this think but not as bad....so far. I am almost scared to say that.

- Well at this point it seems like everything gives me heartburn . . . so I'm not giving up garlic or onions . . . I'm italian and I put garlic in everything . . . and I love onions and I also put onions (sauteed) in just about everything I cook . . . so like the other poster said . . . try small amts at a time and see what happens . . . we shouldn't have to give up everything . . . isn't that what the medicine is for ?#6; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:31:00 GMT
- I've been having something that isn't bland once a day or maybe once every other day. I just can't stand eating everything plain anymore. I had a1/3 cup of some soup that had both onions and garlic. My stomach was ok.#7; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:32:00 GMT
- I find that I can "sneak" a bad food in if it's not every day and it's a small amount. For example ONE beer every 3-4 days seems OK, and a small icecream cone with the ice cream only to the top of the cone, if I push it though I pay.#8; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:33:00 GMT
- Now that I have been on the PPI's 2x per day for several months, I can do OK with these items occassionally. I try not to have them two days in a row though. The food I seem to crave the most though is tomatoes. With summer here and tomatoes red and ripe, I have been eating them once are twice a week (in moderation) the last several weeks. I indulged myself with a small tomato, fress mozerella, fresh basil and a bit of balsamic vinegar and oil last week. I had a bit of belching, but was otherwise OK. It was a meal to savor.#9; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:34:00 GMT
Boy do I love tomatoes too! I have 4 tomato plants in my garden and they're starting to produce. I don't have any problem with fresh tomatoes thankfully, but tomato sauce, salsa or even catsup can do me in. I don't know why that is but I'm so thankful that I can eat fresh tomatoes. This is the season, and with all this hot weather they taste so good just sliced up; the mozzarella cheese and fresh basil (I also have basil in my garden!) sound yummy; I'm getting a craving now!;)

Do fresh tomatoes have less acid than canned? I've got plants in my garden also but don't know if I'll be able to eat any. I've been staying away from any tomatores for almost 6 months now. Cravings!!#11; Mon, 17 Dec 2007 22:36:00 GMT
It must be so, or else the processing does something to them to make them more acidic. why don't you try one, maybe with cheese -I like cottage cheese, and see how it goes? Especially when you have them growing in your garden and they're so good for you! Hope you can enjoy!
