Hello there. I have just recovered from a diverticulitus attack. I was wondering if there is an appropriate diet for those recovering from diverticulitis and maybe even a good way to prevent other attacks. Thank you in advance!

Mild cases can be treated with changes in diet, rest and antibiotics. A clear liquid diet or a low-fiber diet is recommended to help the area of infection to heal. Once your symptoms have improved —you can gradually increase the amount of fiber in your diet. In order to prevent attacks of diverticulitis, you should eat more fiber like fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains. They soften waste and help it pass more quickly through your colon. This reduces pressure within your digestive tract. You should take 25 to 35 grams of fiber a day. If you have a difficult time consuming this much fiber every day, you can use a fiber supplement. Also, drink a lot of fluids. Fiber works by absorbing water and increasing the soft, bulky waste in your colon. But if you don't drink enough liquid to replace what is absorbed, fiber can be constipating
