This is something new I found that gives a good overview.

STEP 1. Gatorade and Bouillon

DIET: Patients with severe nausea and vomiting should sip small volumes of salty liquids such as Gatorade or bouillon in order to avoid dehydration. Any liquid to be ingested should have some caloric content. A multiple vitamin supplement should be prescribed.
GOAL: To ingest 1,000 to 1,500 cc per day in multiple servings, e.g. twelve 4 oz. servings over the course of 12-14 hours.
AVOID: Citrus drinks of all kinds and highly sweetened drinks.

STEP 2. Soups

DIET: The diet may be advanced to include a variety of soups with noodles or rice and crackers. Peanut butter, cheese, and crackers may be tolerated in small amounts. Caramels or other chewy confections may be tried. These foods should be given in at least six divided meals per day. A multivitamin should be prescribed.
GOAL: To ingest approximately 1,500 calories per day. Patients who can accomplish this will avoid dehydration and will hopefully ingest enough calories to maintain their weight.
AVOID: Creamy, milk-based liquids. The fat in the meal will delay emptying of the stomach.

STEP 3. Starches, chicken, and fish

DIET: Starches such as noodles, pasta, potatoes and rice are easily mixed and emptied by the stomach. Thus, soups, mashed potatoes or baked potatoes, pasta dishes, rice and baked chicken breast and fish are usually well tolerated sources of carbohydrate and protein. These solids should also be ingested in six small meals per day. A one-a-day vitamin should be prescribed.
GOAL: To find a diet of common foods that the patient finds interesting, satisfying, and that evoke minimal nausea/vomiting symptoms.
AVOID: Fatty foods which delay gastric emptying and red meats and fresh vegetables which require considerable nutrition. Avoid pulpy fibrous foods that promote formation of bezoars.
This was on the Mayo site.

A good place to start is with G-Pact on Facebook. There are several support groups from there that might be good for you. There are a few diet plans out there that you can draw from. Each person is so different. Do you know which level Diet plan you are on? I do best at level 2. I try to have 1 or 2 liquid meals a day depending on how I am doing. I also am at the stage grinding my meats in order for them to digest well. Each person is so different. There should be several soup recipes that will work well for you. With such a limited group of fruits and vegetables to choose from you sometimes just have to try small amounts and see how that works for you. I will see if I can copy and paste one of the diet sheets that might help you see what is recommended.
No whole wheat, no fresh fruits and vegetables, the only vegetables I can eat are canned carrots and potatoes, mushrooms and squash. No peas or beans are a few of the limitations.
