      Hi Marina, With diverticular disease it is very important to keep the bowel moving, as a sluggish bowel will trigger bouts of painful diarrhoea or just more pain generally. Drink plenty of (preferably warm) water daily (preferably at least 30 minutes away from food) and include cooked vegetables with as many meals as possible. Chew your food well and relax when eating. Try to avoid white flour, white pasta and refined sugar, as these make it harder for your bowel to move efficiently. Best Wishes, Ali
