    Hi there,

    know how you feel with what or what not to eat.

    I have no idea what causes my flare ups as it might have been food from a day or a week ago that causes them, so I eat what I fancy but do avoid fried food and have started cutting back on coffee.

    Hi I'm the same trying to figure out what I can eat. But onions are a definate no as well as anything from the onion family leeks, garlic etc. Basically anything that adds flavour. Tomatoes too. So hard to work out what is bad or ok. Fried food is bad for me too. But I don't suffer constipation or loose bowels just really uncomfortable pain which can be anywhere from lower back round to the front or sides. and frequent bowel movements just normal consistantcy.

    Hi Marie, Diverticulitis affects affects people in different ways, its like trying on shoes, one size does not fit all.   What might trigger an attack in you will not affect me.  Sadly, in my case, I do not eat peas, corn, tomatoes with seed, berries, chocolate, nuts or seeds of any kind.  I am suspicious about pastry and cake.  I try to limit red meat and anything hard to digest like fruit skins.  In other words lots of the foods I loved to eat are a no-no now.  Whether the avoidance of these foods will lessen the occurance of diverticulitis attacks remains to be seen.  The unpredictability of this disease causes me a lot of anxiety.
