In brief: Simple changes...

Since fats ; large meals take longer to exit stomach, modify your diet to six small low fat feedings.
Since liquids exit your stomach faster than solids, delay drinking liquids with meal rather than before. If your gastroparesis is diabetic-related, nix (permethrin) diet recommendations above ; see diabetic provider. Of note, a small particle size diet has recently been shown effective in gastroparesis too.

In brief: Low fat, low fiber

Fat and fiber both delay gastric emptying and should be avoided.
