Identify trigger foods with the Diverticulitis Diet weekly food diary

It may take a little detective work to figure out which foods trigger your diverticulitis symptoms. But one thing that can help is to keep a food diary. All you have to do is record what you eat along with any symptoms that develop after consuming that meal.  After a week of recording your food journal, refer to the symptoms table and look for patterns. For example, if you get cramps or flare-ups after meals that include red spaghetti sauce, you can possibly attribute the sauce as a trigger food and avoid it in future meals.

How to Get Started

Print the food diary document below, and use it to record what you eat each day and when you eat it. Don’t forget to include snacks and drinks. Record any symptoms in the last column (see sample below). Note what time the symptoms begin. Share the diary with your doctor or dietitian to help figure out the cause of your problems.
