Fiber: Add more fiber to your diet slowly by eating more fresh fruits and vegetables. Include pears, raspberries, sweet potatoes with the skin on black and kidney beans, etc.

Food with Fiber: Most fruits and vegetables with fiber are good. Just seed containing foods like kiwi, tomato, peppers r not recommended unless carefully deseeded. Reason being, seeds can get trapped in the pockets of the diverticula setting up a focus for infection , inflammation.
