Why a Low Residue Diet Could Help With Crohn’s, Colitis, and Other GI Problems

Low Residue Diet - eliminate fibre

What is the low residue diet?

Residue refers to fibreits the undigested residue that bulks up your stool. (Find out if youre eating enough fibre.) Essentially, if you eat a low residue diet, you are limiting fibre intake, which is found in abundance in fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and whole grains. That said, a low residue diet is a little bit different than a low-fibre diet, says Jennifer L. Bonheur, MD, a gastroenterologist in New York City. Most low-fibre diets recommend limiting fibre to less than 10 to 15 grams of fibre per day; a low residue diet adds on additional restrictions, like limiting milk intake to two cups a day and excluding prune juice, she notes. This is not a weight loss diet, its a medically indicated diet that helps those with certain digestive diseases.
