How many proteins and fiber should a person get in a day[ that has trouble with diverticulitus and coliteus– plus being constipated?} Thanks

It is important for individuals with chronic diverticulitis to consume diets that are high in fiber and have adequate fluid intake. However, some forms of colitis (Ulcertative Colitis and Chron’s disease) require you to minimize your fiber intake. I recommend speaking with your health care provider who can refer you to dietitian to assess your specific recommendations.
