Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

A low-fiber diet restricts these foods. As a result, the amount of undigested material passing through your large intestine is limited and stool bulk is lessened.

A low-fiber diet may be recommended for a number of conditions or situations. It is sometimes called a restricted-fiber diet.

Foods that are generally allowed on a low-fiber diet include:

White bread without nuts and seeds
White rice, plain white pasta, and crackers
Refined hot cereals, such as Cream of Wheat, or cold cereals with less than 1 gram of fiber per serving
Pancakes or waffles made from white refined flour
Most canned or well-cooked vegetables and fruits without skins or seeds
Fruit and vegetable juice with little or no pulp, fruit-flavored drinks, and flavored waters
Tender meat, poultry, fish, eggs and tofu
Milk and foods made from milk — such as yogurt, pudding, ice cream, cheeses and sour cream — if tolerated
Butter, margarine, oils and salad dressings without seeds

You should avoid:

Whole-wheat or whole-grain breads, cereals and pasta
Brown or wild rice and other whole grains, such as oats, kasha, barley and quinoa
Dried fruits and prune juice
Raw fruit, including those with seeds, skin or membranes, such as berries
Raw or undercooked vegetables, including corn
Dried beans, peas and lentils
Seeds and nuts and foods containing them, including peanut butter and other nut butters
