With our Diverticulosis / Diverticulitis Meal Plans, you stack the odds in your favour. To take maximum advantage of our meal plans, take the time to read the information below.
Today, little scientific evidence concludes that a high-fiber diet promotes the regression of existing diverticula, or prevents inflammation (diverticulitis). However, it seems beneficial for people with diverticular disease, who have no complications, to eat a high amount of dietary fiber.

During the maintenance phase (diverticulosis), you can replace recipes or meals at leisure. However, during phases ‘Diverticulitis’ and ‘Diverticulosis, introduction’, you must follow the meal plans exactly as proposed, as they are carefully calibrated and any departure could delay the improvement of your condition.
The most recent recommendations (references) to prevent inflammation and/or infection of the diverticula consist of 28 nutritional targets that must be attained day after day, to bring about positive changes.
The following table shows that our Diverticulosis Meal Plans have consistently met the nutritional recommendations since their launch, on February 23rd, 2012.
