I have looked for a diet for the TIF procedure and I can't find any. I tried the EsophyX website I was told to go to, but I have found nothing. Someone please help me.

Here is the  information from the web site in a nutshell:

The strength of your new antireflux valve is largelydetermined by how well it heals.

What you eat and drink can dramatically impact the durability of your antireflux valve. You will be asked to follow a liquid diet followed by a mashed and soft food diet as your antireflux valve heals.

If you experience heartburn after eating a particular food, write down the food that gave you heartburn and try to avoid eating it. Talk to your doctor at your next visit about your food-associated symptoms.

Remember, occasional heartburn episodes are commonly experienced by people who do not suffer from GERD, and this may in fact mean that your valve is functioning correctly.

During the 12-week post-procedure period, it is important that you adhere to the following guidelines:

Eat 4 to 5 small meals consisting of soft foods throughout the day.

Take small bites and chew your food thoroughly.

Avoid foods with course texture, nuts, raw fruits, and raw vegetables.

Avoid foods or drinks that in the past caused reflux.

Remain in an upright position for 1 hour after eating.

Do not eat for at least 2 hours before bedtime.

Do not drink carbonated beverages or alcohol

Avoid spicy foods

Avoid foods and drinks that are very hot or very cold.

Here is the link to the online patient post procedure information:

Good Luck and remember to give yourself time to heal.
