2. Good: Low-Fiber Foods
While it’s important to get some fiber in your diet, that’s not so much the case if you’re having painful flare-ups associated with diverticulitis, explains Healthline.
Low fiber foods can include white rice, white pasta, processed fruits, cooked fish or eggs, potatoes without skin, and fruit or vegetable juice, it adds. On the flipside, fiber rich foods to avoid if your symptoms are more intense include beans, legumes, whole grains, and raw vegetables or fruits.
