Are there dietary changes that can be made for gastroparesis instead of reglan (metoclopramide) or propulsid drug therapy?

Gastroparesis: Small portions, small meals, chew very well. Minimize meats. Minimize crust and chunky food. Walk after eating. Drink a bit of fluid while eating. Avoid constipation. Eat lots of natural fiber.
