If you have any inflammatory bowel condition such as IBS-Colitis -UC- Crohn’s Disease or Diverticulitis you should eat a low fiber diet which is no raw vegs-no raw fruit-no nuts -no seeds -no corn.
The only caveat to this is if there is some other food that causes a problem which typically would be gluten or dairy then we put that one aside and like the rest we will get back to it later. When one is treated properly for any IBD we should then be able to consume that food without any problems. Anything else you want to eat is fair game. Yes—- that means things like meat-fish-poultry-eggs——anything that is not rough-crunchy. Of course raw fruit like bananas and melons being soft are ok to eat. This is all temporary.
Why low fiber? This is because your bowel is already irritated and we don’t need to be dragging rough stuff over it. Just eating low fiber although definitely not a cure will significantly reduce your diarrhea.
But don’t be fooled into thinking that means you are healed. It’s a 2 step process. 1. Stop irritating the tissue. 2. Start ingesting substances that will rebuild and protect the tissue– what I call putting humpty-dumpty back together again.
