Have you tried meal replacement drinks or protein shakes? Most are very easy on the system and will give you what you need to recover from a workout.

Best,

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Oddly enough, what seems to be causing an issue is exercise! On workout days, I tend to have a more "tender stomach" than on non-workout days, even though I'm not doing serious abdominal work.

I'm noticing that my desire to eat dinner on these night is curbed to the point where I was eating though my body didn't really seem to want it. I'm gonna try having light dinners on these days to see if it helps.

In the past it has been indicated that some of the foods you mentioned can contribute to flare ups of the diverticula. However recent studies say otherwise. My suggestion is to watch what you are eating and keep a food diary. If something bothers you when you eat it write it down but don't eliminate it yet. Try it a second time and if it bothers you again maybe then eliminate it, or at least cut back on it. Also don't eliminate everything at once. Make small changes and see if that helps. This way you might not have to eliminate all the foods you like but maybe mix them up a little more in your diet.

I'm curious how many of us have IBS, spastic colon, or similar issues. I know my diverticula were formed because I have such an issue. Any time it flares up, I am terrified it will effect the diverticula.

The challenge is, sometimes eating the foods we should eat, whole fruit, veg, and whole grains, seems to kick off the issues. I've had a terrible time the last 2 nights due to this.

Any vets have suggestions?

Thanks,

Lexi
