Tips on Optimising your diet to manage diverticulitis and relieve symptoms

As mentioned in the previous chapter, adopting a diet low in fiber during the onset and duration of diverticulitis will aid in managing and alleviating any symptoms that may occur. The following tips may be useful in decreasing fiber in the diet:

2) Limit (but do not completely eliminate) the amount of plant foods consumed: As fibre is mainly obtained from these types of foods it makes sense to limit these in the diet for the duration of diverticulitis.

3) Remove the skin from fruits and vegetables before consumption. Most of the fibre contained within these foods is held within the skin.

4) Avoid seeds, nuts, popcorn, and legumes as these may further exacerbate the condition.

Foods that are low in fibre include:

  • White breads and cereals
  • Skinless fruits and vegetables
  • Fruit Juice
  • Vegetable Juice
  • Meat and dairy products

5) In some individuals it may be necessary to select lactose free dairy products, if lactose malabsorption is present. Appropriate dairy foods that are low in lactose include:

1 Soy milk (ensure you select a soy milk fortified with calcium)

2 Most cheeses

3 Lactose free milk

4 Lactose free yogurt
