    Hi,

    I suffer with reflux/heartburn, gastritis and the like. Usually if I feel dizzy or nauseous after I eat, it's because I'm also constipated or bloated, sorry if TMI. It means the new food has no where to go once it's broken down if I haven't been able to eliminate anything. Usually a stool softner and gas x helps to alleviate things. Now that's me. I don't know if that is your sister's case. Hope this helps.

    Yes I relate to your sister's symptoms. I've been dizzy when eating bulky food for 20 years. Anything with fiber including most grain, fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, potatoes, chewy meat and cultured dairy. 

    She can cut back on these foods without going hungry by trying rice with poultry with butter and salt for a few days. In between saltines are ok. White wheat is better but yeast breads can make me sick. Saltines have baking soda to help the stomach acid. I do ok with butter on them if it's hard butter. Sometimes when on antibiotics I can have mashed zucchini with butter. I can have high fat vanilla ice cream from Trader Joe's or Haagen Dazs. Trader Joe's is much cheaper.
