If you currently have an active infection, depending on the severity, dietary restrictions will wary.If you do not have an active infection generally staying on a high fiber diet is helpful. Contrarary to popular belief there is little (if any) scientific evidence that avoiding seeds, nut, etc, etc has any effect on causing an infection.

There has been alot of misinformation as to how diet relates to diverticulitis. Limiting certain foods such as seeds , popcorn etc used to be common but no scientific evidence exists that these foods caues bouts of diverticulitis. Eat a high fiber diet, drink plenty of fluids and avoid constipation.
