Diverticulitis Clear Liquids Diet

Clear liquids diet for diverticulitis

If your symptoms of diverticulitis are severe, a clear liquid diet is highly recommended. Going without solid food gives the colon a chance to rest and heal. Your doctor may recommend a clear liquid diet immediately after surgery until your digestive system regains the strength to absorb and digest fiber. A clear liquid diet is typically followed by a low residue (or low fiber) diet.  The clear liquids diet therapy should be followed only for two or three days.

The following foods are allowed in a clear liquid diet:

  • Plain water, clear sodas, tea or coffee with no cream
  • Fruit juices without pulp, such as apple or grape juice
  • Bouillon, broths, strained vegetable broth
  • Plain gelatin
  • Jelly (without seeds), honey are also acceptable
  • Ice pops without bits of fruit or fruit pulp

Here’s a typical clear liquid diet daily meal plan.

Breakfast:

  • One glass fruit juice
  • One glass water
  • One cup broth
  • One bowl gelatin

Snack:

  • One cup coffee or Calming Blends tea (without cream)
