I have the same condition. Doctor recommended 30 gr fibre daily. I can usually get 25. Many vegetables are higher in calcium so check that out.

I must tell you that the higher fibre has greatly reduced my symptoms. Good luck to you.

Diverticulosis is one of those conditions that varies individual to individual. My grandmother struggles with it from time to time and has found she must avoid the following: nuts, seeds, any type of corn.
She follows a high-fiber diet packed with veggies and fruits. She is a 91 y.o. wonderful lady and is very old-school, doing all her own cooking and choosing all fresh groceries. A typical day for her diet looks like this:
Breakfast: kale soup (she loves soup for breakfast), hard-boiled egg, coffee
snack: fresh peach
lunch: a few slices of salami, cottage cheese, sauteed spinach
snack: baby carrots
dinner: grilled cod, broccoli florets, sweet potato (mashed with olive oil), wine
snack: apple, small dessert of some form, coffee

Does the nutrition tracker include the option for lactose intolerant ideas. I'm sure that you can track calcium. Hm....

Unfortunately, the nature of specific medical conditions means that we her eon the message boards can't really provide specific medical advice, and unfortunately, treating conditions like that through diet is the realm of your medical professional team.

Talk to your doctor, and ask for a referral to a dietician. This will have the added bonus of getting you some professional advice for weight loss, meal ideas, and more!

Definitely see a dietitian! I don't think we could really help you.

Your doctor will be able to refer you to a dietician for that.

I'm looking for suggestions on what to eat with this condition I have recently been diagnosed with. I am also lactose intolerent so I don't eat any kind of dairy and don't get propper calcium. Need ideas for a high fiber diet.
