Clear liquids: Start with clear liquid like water, soda that is clear, or sports hydration drinks. Sip often to prevent dehydration.Work up to solids with bland foods like bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, gelatin, or chicken. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, dairy & high fat foods. Ginger in the form of ginger ale or ginger tea can help symptoms. Rest.
