When suffering from a severe attack of diverticulitis, it is recommended that a patient avoid high-fiber foods. With the bowel already in a state of distress, these hard-to-digest foods can lead to additional cramping and bloat. During this acute phase, the bowel will need to rest and heal, and as a result, many physicians recommend a diet of easily-digestible foods. These foods include broth, gelatin, fruit juices and ice pops without pulp or seeds, and coffee and tea without cream. Typically, this acute-phase diet will not last more than one to two days, as it lacks in full nutrition which can lead to weakness and further complications.

Find out now what low-fiber foods to reintroduce back into a healthy diet when healing from diverticulitis.
