I am a 27-year-old student, and my lifestyle is very sedentary. I have bowel movements twice a day daily. I also have had acidity issues for the past seven to eight months and take Pantosec rarely once a month. I wanted to inquire about the diet that I should follow. I have to sit for long hours for the major part of the day. I am a vegetarian and mostly eat homemade food and outside food once or twice a month. I eat three meals, i.e., breakfast (poha (flattened rice), bread, cheese, and similar meals), lunch, and dinner (three to four chapatis (flat bread), vegetables, salad, milkshake in summer, dal). I eat light snacks in the evening and sometimes drink milk at night. I have had acidity issues for a few months, and yesterday I had a headache and a little dizziness which I attributed to my acidity problem. I have had a weak stomach since childhood. It is not a big problem as such, but my digestion and stomach have not been the best. Kindly advise me on what to eat and when to eat, and suggest me a diet plan. I am attaching the blood report of the test conducted a week back.
