In brief: Unhealthy food

Stop grains, lentils, peppers, potatoes based items.
Also avoid milk protein (milk, yogurt, cheese) because it irritates gastric lining. Healthy foods: eggs, fish, chicken, meats, vegetables, some saturated fat (butter, ghee, coconut oil), olive oil. Consume a small sweet potato and probiotic daily. Read this short article: https://www.kaushikmd.com/get-started/
