Help with dealing with gastritis!

Hey, I'm 21 and just got diagnosed with gastritis. I've torn the net apart looking for what to eat/what not to eat/ when I can finally go out again! To be honest, it's not much good as a lot of sites contradict each other.

Any help on foods to eat and avoid would be deeply appreciated, as I live a very busy lifestyle and need quick convenience foods to keep me going!

Thats great, thank you! I've kinda been following something similar to that BRAT diet- mainly wholemeal bread and cereal, yogurt, banana, wholemeal rice and fish (cod and tuna mostly)

I have felt sharp pains sometimes after eating bananas though...

I've switched to decaf tea- is it true i should be eliminating caffeine?

I'm going for an endoscopy next month to decipher the exact cause so I'll know more soon!
