In brief: No set parameters

Consume a low-fat diet (without nondigestible fiber like fruits) and frequent, small meals.
As minimal amount of fat as possible. Fat and fiber diet delays stomachs ability to empty fast.

In brief: 10% of total calorie

Since fat contributes to delayed stomach emptying, i would limit your total dietary calories from fat to not more than 10% of the diet.
3% of those calories need to come from essential fatty acids, so you dont have a essential fatty acid deficiency. You need efa to absorb vitamins a, d, e and k- the fat soluble vitamins.
