I too encourage you to meet with a Registered Dietitian.
Our SP meal plans do not have "low fiber" as an option.
You will need to make substitutions based on your personal nutrition needs.
For some items, it could be selecting a lower fiber bread, cereal, white rice, etc.
For some, it may be peeling the skin from fruit or vegetable.

Knowing the specifics of your diet will help you to tweak the meal plans to meet your needs.

I don't know much about colitis, but I have IBS and can have similar issues with fiber. What I've found out is that there are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. My IBS is very sensitive to insoluble fiber, but I can tolerate a decent amount of soluble fiber:

In addition to seeing a dietician, I would recommend doing some online research. Noone in the medical profession ever spoke to me about the different types of fiber; I figured this out on my own after doing a fair amount of web-searching.

I don't think there is a way to turn off the fiber in the spark plan, but you don't have to follow the spark plan. You can input your own foods.

If you haven't done so. Get a referral to a dietitian to find out what you can safely and comfortably eat.

I have colitis and have been working the program as close as I can and have lost 13 lbs in 2 months but now my body says NO MORE to the fiber and nuts. Is there a way to update my profile to not only work on my prediabetic status and high blood pressure but to add this ailment to my list. I would like to see if the menu options change and make it easier to stay on track. Any ideas to help with the system and/or the issue?
