Doctor Recommended Diets 

High Fiber Diets

A diet high in fiber is important for regular bowel function. The common American diet is fiber deficient. The National Cancer Institute recommends 20 to 35 grams of dietary fiber per day. The average American diet contains only 12 grams of dietary fiber. 

Low Fiber Diets

A low fiber diet should contain selections from all major food groups. The diet can provide adequate calorie intake and all essential nutrients. If the diet must be followed for a long period of time, a multivitamin supplement may be needed. The intake of calcium and magnesium may need to be supplemented as well.
