•  Be sure to chew food thoroughly and slowly, making sure everything is broken down before
                       swallowing.  This will reduce the instances of aches and pains as food travels through the
                       stomach and significantly help the digestive process.  By eating slowly, you will enjoy the
                       food more and finish the meal alongside others having ‘their normal portion’.
                   •  Avoid stodgy things like white bread, too much white rice or pasta, or foods difficult to chew
                       like red meat, steaks and pork chops.  These can temporarily clog up the system, causing
                       discomfort and possibly ‘dumping’ – aka rapid trips to the loo.
                   •  Avoid excessively sugary foods. Eating too much sugar can also cause ‘dumping’.
