What Should You Eat With Diverticulitis?

After having an attack from diverticuitis.....the first question is: What should/shouldn't I eat to prevent another attack. I've ready so much and there are a variety of answers. One person says to avoid seeds and nuts while another will say it's ok to eat them.

The more I read about diverticulosis and diverticulitis, the more I realize, we know are bodies better than anyone. I think it's up to us to decide what works and what doesn't.

Keeping a food journal will help you keep track of your food choices. You need to make sure you writing down when something doesn't agree with you.

My mom eats nuts and seeds and hasn't had a problem since her diagnosis. That one week stay in the hospital was enough for her. She eats more often and smaller amounts is the biggest change I've noticed.

The answer to what we should and shouldn't eat is defined by listening to our bodies. Eating high fiber food is good on any type diet...not just this disease.

Listen to your body and keep your pencil and paper handy. Journalize your food intake. It is a good source for you in deciding what you can and can't eat.
