Low Fiber Diet

This diet may be used when a reduction in stool frequency and volume is desirable. Diet is generally for short-term use following diarrhea, colitis, partial bowel obstruction, diverticulitis, megacolon and before or after bowel surgery. This diet reduces non-digestible food fibers and residue. Foods to avoid while on a low-fiber diet include most fruits, vegetables, whole-grain breads and cereals, and dried beans and legumes. This diet is inadequate in most nutrients and should be used for only a short period of time (24-48 hrs.). Consult with dietitian about a more detailed diet plan for proper adherence and nutritional supplementation.
