Low Fiber Diet for Diarrhea

The fiber in food provides the roughage or bulk that stimulates the bowel. It is generally recommended that you consume at least 25 grams of dietary fiber a day to promote good bowel health. The major sources of dietary fiber are fruits, vegetables, whole grains and dried beans.

However, a common side effect of radiation treatment and many chemotherapies is diarrhea. If you experience treatment-related diarrhea you should follow a low fiber diet and limit your intake of dietary fiber to about 10 grams a day. A low fiber diet is better tolerated with diarrhea because it will not stimulate the bowel as much and it will be easier to digest.
