Diverticulitis Diet


Treatment American Dietetic Association recommends 20 to 35 grams of fiber each day. Of this, about 6-8 grams should be soluble fiber.
Note About Seeds
Up until recently, doctors advised avoiding small-seed-containing foods, such as tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, strawberries, raspberries and poppy seeds, because it was believed that particles could lodge in the diverticula and cause inflammation. However, it is now believed that only foods that may irritate or get caught in the diverticula cause problems.
