Hi..

I was wondering if anyone has any recipes or no of any that would help...I'm new with this now, and currently on antibiotics. I would like to know if there is ways of dealing with it. I have concluded the liquid diet to give my colons a break, now onto solids to which i had rice and yogourt. Anything else? Any suggestions? Just curious...thanks...

iVillage has this information on treating diverticulitis, which includes some information about diet: http://www.ivillage.com/diverticulitis-2/treatment-overview/4-o-98008

If you are still having pain you will want to keep to soft, easy foods. Once the pain has subsided you will want to try to gradually increase the fiber in your diet. Some sources recommend a vegetarian diet or at least one high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
