Your Healthy Eating Diverticulosis Diet Plan

Managing your diet with diverticular disease can be challenging and confusing. Diverticulosis is a condition where small pockets form in the colon. Diet recommendations vary depending on if you have inflammation or infection within these pockets (called diverticulitis), or if you are having no symptoms (diverticulosis).
 
If you’re looking for an effective diverticulosis diet plan, our fiber rich meals are an excellent choice. Along with adequate fluid and regular physical activity, a high fiber diet helps to keep bowels regular to help keep the colon healthy. During flares of diverticulitis, we recommend taking a break from our program until your digestive tract has had a chance to rest with a low fiber diet. Once you transition back to a normal diet, many doctors recommend including foods with fiber as soon as you can tolerate it. Our full program includes 21 convenient, healthy meals (7 breakfasts, 7 lunches, and 7 dinners) to make managing diverticulosis easy and delicious.

Three Keys to A Successful Diverticulosis Diet

 
High Fiber Diet
A diet high in fiber helps to prevent constipation, can help decrease pressure in the colon, and help prevent flare-ups of diverticulitis. Our meals include a variety of high-fiber foods including fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and beans and legumes. Seattle Sutton's meals provide about twice as much dietary fiber as the typical American diet!

 

 

Up-to-Date Nutrition

Historically, it has been commonly recommended to avoid nuts, seeds, corn, and popcorn with diverticulosis. Recent literature has indicated that these recommendations are not necessary and that these foods can be included as tolerated in a diverticulosis diet plan when the colon is not inflamed. Eat the foods you enjoy on our plan without any unnecessary restrictions! If you’re trying to prevent attacks, our healthy meals will provide you an overall healthy diet with plenty of variety and flavor!

 

Gut Friendly Probiotics

Some studies suggest that probiotics may help with diverticulosis symptoms and may help prevent diverticulitis. All of our meal plans include 2-3 servings of low-fat dairy per day, as recommended by the DASH diet (Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension). By choosing low-fat yogurt for your dairy servings as part of your Seattle Sutton’s meals you would get this gut-friendly bacteria which may help keep your digestive tract healthy.

 

Simplifying Diverticulosis Management

Tracking fiber and knowing what to eat for diverticulosis can be difficult. We understand that you’re busy living life and don’t always have the time it takes to plan, shop and prepare meals that are healthy and contain the right amount of fiber.
