This diet is often used after abdominal surgery or as a transitional diet after gastroenteritis, diverticulitis or inflammatory bowel flares.
After several weeks, slowly start to reintroduce the “Foods to Avoid” back into your diet unless your doctor has told you otherwise. Try a small portion of one of these foods each day. If it does not bother you within 24 hours, it can be added to your diet. Continue to add new foods in this way.
Some people may continue to have food sensitivities and may need to continue to avoid certain foods. If you cannot tolerate a food, avoid that food for a few weeks before you try it again.
