A bland diet is an eating plan that emphasizes foods that are easy to digest. If you’re following this diet, you should choose foods that are low in fat, low in fiber, and easy to chew. And as the name implies, the bland diet calls for foods that are mild in flavor.

The bland diet is sometimes called the BRAT or BRATT diet. BRAT is an acronym that stands for bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. If you’re following a bland diet, you can incorporate these four foods into your meals, but there are many other options to choose from.

Bland diets are generally helpful for people with digestion problems. This includes those with nausea, diarrhea, loss of appetite, or changes in taste. If left untreated, these symptoms can cause you to lose too much weight and prevent you from getting enough nutritious food. A bland diet can help make sure that you get enough to eat and that you maintain a healthy weight.

Focus on low-fiber, starchy grains. Raw fruits and vegetables tend to have too much fiber to digest easily. Canned or bottled fruits and vegetables may work for some people. You can also eat cooked vegetables, but they should be soft. Avoid vegetables that have been steamed or blanched.

Good sources of protein on the bland diet include skinless roasted or baked chicken, eggs, low-fat milk and yogurt, and smooth peanut butter and other nut butters.

Milk, Dairy Products, and Milk Alternatives Low-fat milk and yogurt
Any milk alternative (such as rice, soy, and almond milk)
Vegetables Canned or bottled vegetables in moderation
Vegetables cooked until very soft
Fruit and Juices Canned or bottled fruits in moderation
Diluted fruit juice
Breads and Grains Potatoes, crackers, bread, pasta, rice, and plain cereals
Meats and Other Proteins Roasted or baked poultry without the skin
Smooth nut butter
Fats and Oils Healthy oils, such as olive oil, in moderation (a drizzle for flavor)
Beverages Caffeine-free beverages

Stay away from these items:

  • spicy or highly seasoned foods, such as curry, hot sauce, hot peppers, and onions

  • high-fat foods, such as red meat, cream, and anything fried

  • sugary foods, such cookies, doughnuts, cake, candy, and ice cream

Milk and Dairy Products Full-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese
Dairy-based ice cream
Vegetables Raw, steamed, and fried vegetables
Fruit and juices Fresh, raw, and frozen fruit, unpasteurized juices
Breads and Grains Any product with more than 5 grams of fiber per serving
Meats and Other Proteins Fatty or marbled meat
Poultry with skin
Fried meat, poultry, and shellfish
Fats and Oils Butter
Beverages Alcohol
Caffeinated beverages (if diarrhea is a problem)
Cream-based beverages (if diarrhea is a problem)

The lack of variety in foods and flavors can be difficult for some people on the bland diet. Planning meals in advance can help you avoid repeating foods.

Marinades are a nice way to bring out the natural flavors of poultry. Marinate poultry in fruit juices such as orange juice or pineapple juice. You can use onions or garlic as long as you remove them before you cook the meat. Sea salt is another way to bring out the natural flavors of your meat.

Foods on the bland diet tend to be binding, meaning that they can cause constipation. It’s important to drink plenty of fluid throughout the day to help ease constipation.

Back to top

If you’re experiencing nausea or a lack of appetite, try eating smaller meals more frequently instead of three large meals.

  • Focus on mild flavors. Avoid strong flavors and odors.

  • Avoid drinking during meals. This can help make sure that you get enough nutrition from your food rather than filling up on liquids.

  • To give your digestion a jump start, be sure to chew well and select foods that require less chewing.

Benefits of a Bland Diet for Symptom Management

A bland diet consists of foods that are low in fiber and fat. Foods that are both low in fiber and fat are easier for your body to digest and are often referred to as low-residue or soft diets. Bland diets can be helpful during some medical conditions, as the foods are relatively non-irritating to the tissue in your mouth, throat, stomach, and intestines. Bland diets are not a dieting method for weight loss.

When Is a Bland Diet Useful?

Bland diets should only be considered for treating the symptoms of an underlying medical condition, and for as short a time as possible. Common reasons that your doctor may recommend starting a bland diet can include:

  • Bacterial food poisoning: If possible, eat a bland diet and slowly return your diet to normal over one to two days as tolerated.
  • Gastroenteritis, also known as infectious diarrhea: Bland diets are usually better tolerated
  • Traveler’s diarrhea: Bland diets may provide some comfort and nutrition while the common symptoms of an upset stomach may decrease your desire to eat.
  • Upset stomach
  • Nausea and vomiting of pregnancy (NVP), also known as hyperemesis gravidarum or morning sickness: Eating a bland diet in more frequent and smaller meals may help to relieve nausea.
  • Intermediate eating step after gastric surgery: A soft or bland diet is often used to advance your diet following surgery before you resume a regular diet.
  • Gastrointestinal bowel disease: A bland diet may be recommended to use during acute cases or flares of Crohn’s, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, ulcerative colitis, or diverticulitis.

Identifying and Managing Crohn’s Disease Flare-Ups

Bland diets are somewhat controversial in relation to diarrhea. Often, it’s recommended to maintain a regular diet to ensure proper nutrition. However, due to the upset stomach and nausea that sometimes accompany diarrhea, a bland diet may be better tolerated.

Bland Diet vs. BRAT Diet

A BRAT diet is a diet that solely consists of bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast. While the BRAT diet is also considered a bland diet, it is more restrictive than the general bland diet. The intent behind the BRAT diet is to limit foods that are considered “binding,” or provide bulk to your stool that makes it firmer. Bananas, which are high in potassium, are particularly helpful, as diarrhea will tend to cause you to lose potassium. While this may be a potentially useful diet for adults, this diet is no longer recommended for children. You may, however, discuss this option with your doctor if your child cannot keep other foods down. Otherwise, children are encouraged to maintain a normal diet.

The BRAT diet should not be used long-term, as it is not sufficiently adequate in dietary requirements, and malnutrition will occur.

Foods to Eat

In general, foods that you eat on a bland diet do not have to taste bad or plain. There are many foods that can be eaten on a bland diet that you will likely find tasty to your palate. Listed below are categories of foods and some examples of foods that you can eat if you are on a bland diet:

  • Beverages: Herbal (decaffeinated) tea, water, juice, caffeine-free carbonated drinks, and sports drinks
  • Dairy: Milk (low-fat is preferred), yogurt, and cottage cheese
  • Desserts: Gelatin (flavored or plain), jam/jelly, honey, syrup, pound cake, sponge cake, and non-chocolate or peppermint custard, pudding, ice-cream, cookies, ice milk, and tapioca
  • Fats: Margarine, butter, mayonnaise, olive and canola oil, and mild salad dressings
  • Fruits: Bananas, applesauce, and fruit juices (may prefer to avoid citrus juice)
  • Grains: Cream of wheat, rice, and foods made with enriched flour, which include tortillas, white bread, English muffins, melba toast, rolls, pasta, and crackers
  • Proteins/Meats: Eggs, tofu, creamy peanut (or other nuts) butter, and well-cooked meat (with fat trimmed off), including chicken, fish, veal, lamb, and pork
  • Spices: Salt, cinnamon, thyme, allspice, paprika, ground spices in moderation, and prepared mustard
  • Vegetables: Potatoes and yams with skins that are baked, boiled, creamed, diced, or mashed

As you can see, there are many different types of foods that you can eat while maintaining a bland diet.

Foods to Avoid

  • Beverages: Alcohol, chocolate milk, coffee (both caffeinated and decaffeinated), and caffeinated teas or carbonated drinks
  • Dairy: Cocoa and chocolate drinks
  • Desserts: Desserts that contain chocolate, cocoa, or any spices that should be avoided
  • Fats: Strong salad dressings
  • Fruits: Raw fruits, citrus fruits, berries, and dried fruits
  • Grains: Fried foods, whole grains, and brown or wild rice
  • Proteins/Meats: Nuts, processed meat, spiced or seasoned meat, hot dogs, sausage, and fried meat or eggs
  • Spices: Pepper, chili powder, hot sauce, salsa, garlic, nutmeg, and other strong seasonings
  • Vegetables: Raw vegetables, peppers (mild or hot), and fried potatoes

Bland Diet Recipe Substitutes

As you can see from the lists above, a bland diet offers more variety than you may have originally assumed. However, there are some limitations that may restrict you from eating some foods that you might usually enjoy.

  • While you can eat chicken while on a bland diet, you may find that you miss being able to add pepper to your meal. Instead, try using dried thyme on your chicken.
  • Nutmeg is a spice often included in many desserts. Try replacing nutmeg with cinnamon as an alternative spice for a tasty treat.
  • While you cannot duplicate the crunchy sensation of nuts in your recipes in a bland diet, you can often find a nut butter that you can use as a substitute to add flavor to your favorite dishes.
  • While you should avoid raw fruits, applesauce or other pureed fruits are acceptable to provide a fruit-filled treat.
  • If you are hooked on caffeine, you may find avoiding caffeinated beverages difficult. Try drinking herbal tea, coconut water, or sparkling water to curb your caffeine fix.
  • While fried eggs, meats, potatoes, or breads are to be avoided, try baking, broiling, or mashing these foods to replace fried substances in your meals.

When you’re dealing with a digestive disorder or gastrointestinal inflammation, it’s not uncommon for your doctor to suggest eating bland foods. In addition to any medical interventions to help manage symptoms, your doctor may also recommend lifestyle modifications such as following a bland diet.

What Is a Bland Diet?

If you have persistent gastrointestinal issues, heartburn, acid reflux or peptic ulcers, your doctor may talk to you about following a bland diet to help manage the symptoms associated with these conditions. You may also need to follow a bland diet for a short period of time after surgery on your digestive tract.

Additionally, if you’re experiencing a sudden onset of vomiting and diarrhea, the Mayo Clinic says your doctor may recommend a bland diet, especially if the bouts are caused by the norovirus, which is a highly contagious infection spread through food or water that is contaminated.

The philosophy behind a bland diet is simple. The symptoms that generally accompany digestion problems, which include nausea and diarrhea, loss of appetite and reflux, can worsen from eating certain foods.

However, if you stick to eating plain food, like the foods recommended on a bland diet, you will likely notice a decrease in digestive symptoms, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. The length of time you stay on a bland foods diet will depend on the issue being treated. That’s why it’s best to work with your doctor to determine your individual needs.

What Are Bland Foods?

A bland meal plan is made up of cooked, soft, easily digestible foods that are low-fiber, nonspicy and gentle to the gastrointestinal tract. Some of the more commonly recommended bland foods include:

  • Broth
  • Bland vegetables such as beets, beans, carrots, spinach, can be cooked, canned or frozen
  • Eggs
  • Low-fat dairy product
  • Fruit and vegetable juice
  • Hot, cooked cereal
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Pudding or custard
  • Tofu
  • Weak tea

But it’s not just the list of bland foods that you need to be aware of. You also need to have a general understanding of the foods you should avoid. For example, the U.S. National Library of Medicine recommends avoiding fried food, spices such as hot peppers and garlic, foods with a lot of sugar, seeds and nuts, highly seasoned meats and dried fruits.

They also point to whole-grain foods such as bread, crackers and pasta, high-fat dairy foods, non-lean meat, condiments such as dressings and sauces, pickles, alcoholic beverages, caffeinated beverages, strong cheeses, and vegetables that cause excess flatulence like cabbage, cauliflower, onions and peppers.

When consuming food on a bland meal plan, make sure to pay attention to the size of your meals. The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recommends avoiding large meals and opt instead for smaller, more frequent meals throughout the day if you’re dealing with digestive disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD.

What Is the BRAT Diet?

In general, when your doctor puts you on a bland diet, they will give you a list of foods to choose from that allows you some flexibility. But if they put you on a BRAT diet, which is a form of a bland diet, the menu flexibility will be eliminated and you’ll only be able to choose from four food items until your doctor tells you otherwise.

BRAT, which stands for bananas, rice, applesauce and toast, is a special bland foods diet that helps to treat upset stomach and diarrhea. The goal of a BRAT diet, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), is to eat a diet that will help make your stools firmer and also help replace nutrients your body lost due to vomiting or diarrhea.

Bananas, rice, applesauce and toast are recommended because they do not irritate your stomach. That said, the AAFP does recommend waiting to start the BRAT diet until you are not actively vomiting. Otherwise, stick to clear liquids until you can eat without vomiting. This is considered a very short-term plan, and as you feel better, you should return to a healthy diet. For a sample plan, you can check out a BRAT diet pdf.

What Constitutes a Bland Diet? | Live Healthy

A bland diet consists of foods that are designed to be easily handled by the digestive tract. A bland diet may be needed for people who are recovering from surgery on the digestive tract or who have problems with nausea, heartburn or other digestive issues. Foods allowed on a bland diet are generally soft and not heavily seasoned.

Recommended Foods

The bland diet includes foods from all of the major food groups. Mild cheeses, cottage cheese and low-fat dairy products are allowed. Fruits and vegetables can be consumed as long as they are well cooked, canned or juiced. For grains, choose foods made with refined white or wheat flour. Cooked refined cereals, such as cream of wheat and oatmeal are also safe. Enriched white rice and pasta are also allowed on a bland diet. Lean, tender meats such as turkey and chicken as well as fish and shellfish can provide protein on a bland diet.

Other Recommended Foods

Most soups, especially broths, can be consumed on a bland diet. Beverages without caffeine, including fruit drinks and herbal teas, can also be consumed as tolerated. For sweets, molasses, seedless jams, honey, marshmallows and plain chocolate candies can be consumed in moderation. Certain fats and oils, such as margarine, mild salad dressings and mayonnaise, can be consumed, but should be used sparingly.

Foods to Avoid

As a general rule, people on bland diets should avoid foods that are heavily seasoned or greasy, such as fried foods. Raw fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds should also be avoided, as they can irritate the digestive tract. Gas-forming vegetables, such as cauliflower, peppers, onions, broccoli and cabbage should also be avoided. Finally, alcohol and caffeine should be excluded from a bland diet.

Additional Tips

People following a bland diet may benefit from eating smaller, more frequent meals. Drinking liquids slowly and chewing food thoroughly may also reduce the stress put on the digestive tract. It may also help to not go to bed within two hours of eating. Finally, for people on a bland, eliminating any food that causes discomfort, even if it is on the “allowed” list is advisable.

List of Approved Foods for a Bland Diet

Medical professionals often suggest bland diets to those experiencing gas, ulcers, heartburn, nausea, vomiting and other conditions. A bland diet consists of low fiber, soft foods with minimal seasonings or spices, notes the University of Maryland Medical Center. Raw, fried or spicy foods are prohibited on a bland diet. As a result, the diet is designed to limit symptoms and promote recovery.


Vegetables are important foods to consume on a bland diet. They offer a balanced dose of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. You should only eat frozen, canned or cooked vegetables, since the bland diet calls for soft foods. Ideal vegetables for a bland diet include winter squash, carrots, green beans, zucchini and peas. Avoid gaseous vegetables such as broccoli, onions, peppers, cabbage and cauliflower.

Soft Diet List After Bowel Surgery

Like vegetables, fruit is a nutritious option to include in your bland diet. For easy digestion, you should choose canned, cooked or soft fruit, removing excess seeds or skin. Applesauce, fruit cocktail, bananas or canned peaches are ideal fruit-based foods for a bland diet. To extend your options, blend fruit into smoothies or juices. For best results, avoid acidic fruits, such as strawberries, blueberries, oranges and grapefruit, reports the University of Maryland Medical Center.

  • For easy digestion, you should choose canned, cooked or soft fruit, removing excess seeds or skin.

Lean Meats and Fish

Lean meats and fish that are grilled without fat, steamed or baked are allowed on a bland diet. These foods contain omega-3 fatty acids and protein, which promote body repair and strengthening. Ideal meat and fish sources include tuna, mackerel, lake trout, herring, salmon, pork tenderloin, chicken breast, peeled shrimp, lobster, beef cuts and game meat.


Diet After a Frenectomy

Consuming dairy products on a bland diet will supply your body with vitamin D, calcium and other nutrients. Elizabeth Lipski reports in “Digestive Wellness” that it is important to consume these sources since they are easily digested. In addition, you can easily consume them during breakfast, lunch or dinner. Dairy sources include milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt and eggs. To avoid saturated fat, opt for reduced or low fat alternatives. Avoid strong cheeses such as Roquefort or blue cheese.

  • Consuming dairy products on a bland diet will supply your body with vitamin D, calcium and other nutrients.
  • In addition, you can easily consume them during breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Breads and Other Carbohydrate Sources

Breads naturally contain substantial amounts of carbohydrates, which supply your body with energy. Since white breads contain less fiber than whole grains or whole wheat bread, refined white breads are the preferred bread source while on a bland diet. Consuming low fiber foods promotes gentle movements within your digestive system. This is especially important if you are recovering from gastrointestinal surgery. Examples of breads and other carbohydrates include saltine crackers, white rice, white bread, mashed potatoes and refined hot cereals.

  • Breads naturally contain substantial amounts of carbohydrates, which supply your body with energy.
  • Since white breads contain less fiber than whole grains or whole wheat bread, refined white breads are the preferred bread source while on a bland diet.

Low-fiber diet do’s and don’ts


Fiber is the part of fruits, vegetables and grains not digested by your body. A low-fiber diet restricts these foods. As a result, the amount of undigested material passing through your large intestine is limited and stool bulk is lessened.

A low-fiber diet may be recommended for a number of conditions or situations. It is sometimes called a restricted-fiber diet.


Your doctor may prescribe a low-fiber diet if:

  • You have narrowing of the bowel due to a tumor or an inflammatory disease
  • You have had bowel surgery
  • You are having treatment, such as radiation, that damages or irritates your digestive tract

As your digestive system returns to normal, you usually can slowly add more fiber back into your diet.

Diet details

A low-fiber diet limits the types of vegetables, fruits and grains that you can eat. Occasionally, your doctor also may want you to limit the amount of milk and milk products in your diet. Milk doesn’t contain fiber, but it may contribute to discomfort or diarrhea, especially if you’re lactose intolerant.

The ability to digest food varies from person to person. Depending on your condition and tolerance, your doctor may recommend a diet that is more or less restricted.

If you’re eating a low-fiber diet, be sure to read food labels. Foods you might not expect — such as yogurt, ice cream, cereal and even beverages — can have added fiber. Look for foods that have no more than 1-2 grams of fiber in one serving.

Avoid these foods and products made with them:

  • Nuts, seeds, dried fruit and coconut
  • Whole grains, popcorn, wheat germ and bran
  • Brown rice, wild rice, oatmeal, granola, shredded wheat, quinoa, bulgur and barley
  • Dried beans, baked beans, lima beans, peas and lentils
  • Chunky peanut butter
  • Fruits and vegetables except those noted below

Choose these foods:

  • Tender meat, fish and poultry, ham, bacon, shellfish, and lunch meat
  • Eggs, tofu and creamy peanut butter
  • Dairy products if tolerated
  • White rice and pasta
  • Baked goods made with refined wheat or rye flour, such as bread, biscuits, pancakes, waffles, bagels, saltines and graham crackers
  • Hot and cold cereals that have less than 2 grams of dietary fiber in a single serving, such as those made from rice
  • Canned or well-cooked potatoes, carrots and green beans
  • Plain tomato sauce
  • Vegetable and fruit juices
  • Bananas, melons, applesauce and canned peaches (no skin)
  • Butter, margarine, oils and salad dressings without seeds

A typical menu might look like this:

  • Cornflakes with milk
  • White toast, creamy peanut butter, jelly
  • Fruit juice
  • Coffee
Mid-morning snack
  • Yogurt without seeds
  • Water or other beverage
Noon meal
  • Turkey sandwich on white bread with mayonnaise
  • Tomato soup
  • Canned peaches
  • Milk or other beverage
Afternoon snack
  • Cheese slices
  • Saltine crackers
  • Water or other beverage
Evening meal
  • Meat loaf
  • Mashed potatoes with butter
  • Cooked carrots
  • Applesauce
  • Milk or other beverage

Prepare all foods so that they’re tender. Good cooking methods include simmering, poaching, stewing, steaming and braising. Baking or microwaving in a covered dish is another option.

Keep in mind that you may have fewer bowel movements and smaller stools while you’re following a low-fiber diet. To avoid constipation, you may need to drink extra fluids. Drink plenty of water unless your doctor tells you otherwise.


Eating a low-fiber diet will limit your bowel movements and help ease diarrhea or other symptoms of abdominal conditions, such as abdominal pain. Once your digestive system has returned to normal, you can slowly reintroduce fiber into your diet.


Because a low-fiber diet restricts what you can eat, it can be difficult to meet your nutritional needs. You should use a low-fiber diet only as long as directed by your doctor. If you must continue eating this diet for a longer time, consult a registered dietitian to make sure your nutritional needs are being met.

BRAT Diet | List of Foods for Diarrhea, Nausea & Vomiting

The BRAT diet—consisting of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast—was created in 1926 to help children recover from bouts of diarrhea, nausea and vomiting caused by stomach flu (gastroenteritis) or other illnesses. It later was expanded to include adults. However, many medical experts and organizations, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics and World Health Organization no longer recommend this diet, especially for children. Why the change? And what foods are OK for you and your child to eat when you’re sick with diarrhea and vomiting?

Why the BRAT Diet Fell Out of Favor

The BRAT diet has long been recommended by doctors, especially for parents with young children, because its foods are bland and low in fiber, which is supposed to make them easier than many other foods to digest following gastrointestinal upset. The diet also helps replace nutrients lost during vomiting and diarrhea, such as potassium, which is found in bananas.

However, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other experts say the diet is not helpful. Their objections primarily apply to its use in children, for whom diarrhea and vomiting can be more serious than in adults. Many experts recommend adults recovering from stomach issues also choose from a range of foods and not be restricted by those in the BRAT diet.

Critics of the BRAT diet say it:

  • Has not been proven to work (no large, controlled studies show it is effective)
  • Does not provide enough nutrition (in the form of fiber, protein and fat) to help patients—especially children—recover, and can result in severe malnutrition if prolonged.
  • May prolong symptoms, make diarrhea worse, and delay recovery
  • Does not emphasize what people—especially infants and children—most need during gastroenteritis recovery: fluids, which are critical to prevent dehydration, a potentially serious complication.

The CDC says, for children, withholding food for 24 hours or longer is inappropriate, while “early feeding decreases changes in intestinal permeability caused by infection, reduces illness duration and improves nutritional outcomes.” The CDC calls the BRAT diet “unnecessarily restrictive” and says it provides “suboptimal nutrition for the patient’s nourishment and recovering gut.”

If people use this diet, they should not do so for more than 24 to 48 hours, experts say. It also should not be used if there are indications of more serious illness, such as fever, pain or fatigue, which require medical attention. Foods like rice are “binding” and can slow down intestinal activity. This may not be appropriate for certain medical conditions, such as an inflammatory condition in the intestines or food allergies, both of which can cause symptoms of gastroenteritis.

BRAT Diet Alternatives: What to Eat and Drink Instead

Some experts recommend a diet that includes the four BRAT diet foods, but adds a variety of other bland foods. For example, the International Foundation for Gastrointestinal Disorders suggests adding potatoes, noodles, yogurt, cream of wheat, some fruits and vegetables, and small amounts of peanut butter to increase nutrient content and electrolytes.

Others say you can resume most foods in a normal, healthy diet, once vomiting has subsided.

Most experts agree—for both children and adults—to only offer fluids until vomiting has ended. Take fluids in small amounts at first (such as with a water-dropper rather than a bottle or cup for very young children or infants, or small sips from a cup for older children and adults), to ensure the fluids don’t result in more vomiting or diarrhea.

However, some differences exist in recommended diets for adults vs. children. Offer a child food appropriate for their age; include many of the foods they get as part of their normal, balanced diet. You can offer these within 24 hours of getting sick.

Foods and drinks recommended for infants and children include:

  • Drinks that contain electrolytes, such as PediaLyte, CeraLyte or Enfalyte, which can rehydrate children. Rehydration to prevent electrolyte imbalance is the top priority.
  • Watered-down fruit juice, broth, Jell-O, and popsicles
  • Bland foods, such as bananas, crackers, skinless chicken, pasta, and rice cereal, in small pieces
  • Bananas, watermelon and applesauce, which are easily digested fruits
  • Cooked vegetables, including carrots, green beans, mushrooms, beets and others
  • Cooked eggs, baked or broiled beef, pork, chicken, fish or turkey
  • Potatoes, white bread, white rice, pancakes and waffles made from white flour, cream of wheat, and oatmeal, to provide easily-digested carbs
  • Low-fat dairy, such as milk, cheese or yogurt, so long as these items don’t cause gas, bloating or additional diarrhea

Foods and drinks to avoid for infants and children:

  • Full-strength fruit juices, especially apple juice, which can make diarrhea worse
  • Plain water, which isn’t absorbed well by many children and doesn’t replace lost electrolytes
  • Sugary drinks, such as many sports drinks, sodas, and Jell-O water
  • Candy or other sugar-laden treats
  • Full-fat dairy products like whole milk and ice cream
  • Fruits and vegetables that cause gas, including broccoli, peppers, beans, peas, berries, prunes, chickpeas, green leafy vegetables, and corn
  • Fatty foods, which can be hard to digest. However, the CDC argues that some fat can have a beneficial effect on the intestines.
  • Foods or drinks containing caffeine; also, no carbonated drinks
  • Foods with skins and seeds (remove before serving)

Yogurt sometimes is on the recommended foods list, especially types with probiotics. However, the American Gastrological Association recently advised against giving children probiotics during recovery from gastroenteritis, saying there is not enough evidence for probiotic effectiveness. There have not been enough U.S. studies to support recommending probiotics for most gastrointestinal problems, including gastroenteritis, either in children or adults.

In addition to food and liquids, some parents may consider giving their child antidiarrheal medicine. However, experts say you should never try this type of diarrhea treatment without first consulting your child’s doctor.

Foods and drinks recommended for adults include:

  • Ice chips to suck on (not chew) during early stages of illness; then, sips of water, clear soda, clear broths and non-caffeinated sports drinks
  • Solids, such as soda crackers, pretzels, toast, gelatin, oatmeal, bananas, rice, boiled or baked potatoes (peeled first), and chicken (skin removed). Some experts recommend sticking with white rice and bread over whole-grain, high-fiber foods, which they say can aggravate diarrhea.
  • Lean proteins, carbs, vegetables and fruits, as suggested above for children, are okay for adults as well.
  • Fruit-flavored gelatin or ice pops, cakes, cookies or sherbet

Foods adults should avoid until feeling better:

  • Dairy products, if they seem to make your diarrhea worse or cause gas and bloating
  • Spicy or highly seasoned foods
  • Fruits and vegetables that can cause gas (the same list as for children)

If your or your child’s symptoms don’t improve, consult with your physician or other healthcare provider. Warning signs of a more serious problem include high fever (102 degrees F or higher), persistent vomiting (more than two days), diarrhea (more than seven days in an adult, but more than 24 hours in a child), signs of dehydration (such as confusion, lack of tears, and lack of urination), and severe abdominal pain.

Always consult your healthcare provider about diarrhea or vomiting in a child less than 6 months of age.

In the treatment of oncological diseases, an important requirement is adherence to dietary nutrition, in particular, the intake of products that have antitumor qualities. With lung cancer, the first step is to exclude from the diet foods that can aggravate the patient’s condition.

Problems of dietary nutrition

One of the factors influencing the occurrence of oncological diseases is improper, malnutrition. The transition to the correct diet can help correct the situation, promote the most rapid recovery of the body. It is preferable to make a diet of healthy, natural, light food, as well as eat a variety of foods that will provide the necessary amount of trace elements for the normal functioning of the digestive system and other systems.

Often, with lung cancer, a person loses appetite, resulting in weight loss. However, balanced food allows you to restore the body’s strength, to receive useful components that can support its natural functions.

Diets are necessary to provide micronutrients, prevent weight loss, prevent new metastases, accelerate metabolic processes, improve digestion, detoxify, and comprehensively strengthen the immune system. For this, a diet is drawn up based on the intake of various products that improve the functioning of the body.

Achievement of strengthening of systems is ensured by taking low dosages of vitamin-containing products, antioxidants, which helps to prevent the growth of cancer cells. The basis for the preparation of dietary nutrition is the consumption of fatty acids of the Omega-3 groups contained in salmon, shrimp, oysters, and marine fish.

Diet rules for lung lesions

Lung cancer is a disease that makes significant changes in a person’s life.Treatment requires the use of complex methods, including the normalization of the patient’s diet.

With oncological damage to organs, a person needs more energy and strength, which requires a balanced meal. A specialized diet is one of the points that contribute to the recovery, restoration of the body.

Oncological diseases of the lungs lead to problems with metabolic processes, deterioration of the digestibility of proteins, carbohydrates, lipid metabolism, suppression of the functioning of the immune system.

The principles of constructing a diet for lung oncology are based on solving problems:

  • restoration of metabolism;

  • normalization of intracellular respiration;

  • elimination of toxins, toxins from the body;

  • stabilization of the immune system;

  • normalization of homeostasis;

  • prevention of depletion of organs such as liver, bone marrow, etc.

  • prevention of weight loss, weakening of the patient’s body.

What products are recommended and prohibited for lung oncology

Among the products permitted for consumption are the following:

  • Vegetables, herbs: tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, garlic, beans, green peas, cabbage , radish, pepper, parsley, dill, fennel.

  • Fruits: grapes, apples, lemons, oranges, pineapples, apricots.

  • Nuts and seeds: walnuts, pistachios, almonds, pumpkin seeds.

  • Meat, fish: chicken, turkey, rabbit meat, any sea fish.

  • Herbs for teas and freshly harvested use : nettle, dandelion, turmeric is recommended from spices, it is recommended to use loose teas without additives.

  • Dairy products: milk, cheeses, low-fat sour cream, kefir, yoghurts without dyes, fillers and additives, natural products.

  • Oil: unrefined virgin oils.

In case of lung oncology, it is necessary to exclude the intake of products:

  • tea bags, coffee;
  • polished rice;

  • milk, yoghurts with additives;

  • baked goods, cookies, confectionery products, sugar;

  • smoked products, sausages;

  • fatty, fried foods;

  • carbonated drinks;

  • marinades;

  • alcoholic drinks.

The diet for cancer of the lungs provides for the need for fractional nutrition, while preferring small portions so as not to overload the stomach and digestive system. You need to eat when hunger occurs, no more than 6 times a day. For breakfast and dinner, it is better to prefer light foods without heat treatment. While eating, this must be chewed thoroughly.

When cooking, you must prefer steamed, stewed, boiled dishes.It is better to eat vegetables and fruits fresh, raw, since in this case they retain useful components, vitamins, antioxidants. You can also use freshly squeezed juices, jelly. Food should not be too hot, cold.

Diet at an early stage of lung oncology

Competent formulation of a diet for lung cancer can improve the patient’s health and well-being, will allow you to maintain the strength necessary to counteract cancer cells.Therefore, you need to follow the recommendations, eat right.

In the first and second stages of lung cancer, the digestive system does not change too much. The patient does not feel significant changes in appetite, weight. However, it is still recommended to follow the nutritional rules that will allow you to timely improve the functionality of the systems in the body.

It is necessary to eat food containing a large amount of anthocyanides found in natural fresh vegetables, fruits, and berries.On average, it is recommended to consume at least one kilogram of these per day. The largest percentage of useful components is found in red, green – bright foods.

When choosing meat, preference should be given to dietary, light types, such as chicken, turkey, rabbit meat. Cooking must be carried out through cooking, steaming, stewing. Main dishes are required to be prepared from the list of approved foods.

To maintain normal digestive processes, you need to eat fractionally, intermittently.This will help prevent gastrointestinal overload.

Diet in late stages of lung oncology

The main task of drawing up a diet for patients with the third, fourth stage of cancer is to facilitate the process of swallowing food. The developing neoplasm puts pressure on the esophagus, which makes it difficult to eat. A number of measures are used to improve and minimize the effect of oncology on the body.

Fruits, vegetables that are difficult to swallow as a whole, in pieces, must be grated, processed in a blender.You can also buy ready-made purees such as baby food. They contain a sufficient amount of nutrients and are also convenient.

In the absence of appetite in the patient, it is necessary to provide a more frequent meal, but in reduced dosages. This will maintain the strength of the body, while not creating significant inconvenience if a person does not want to eat.

It is better to prefer a thicker mixture to a watery liquid, for example, kefir, yogurt, jelly, mashed soups.Drinking water is becoming the most important aspect of helping to eliminate toxins from the body. You need to drink liquid between meals.

If the patient constantly feels nausea, the intoxication diet should be composed of easily digestible foods, soft consistency, with not too pronounced taste parameters. The recommended temperature for food becomes 37 degrees, too hot and cold food should not be taken.

An equally important aspect is the intake of protein foods, which is required to restore damaged tissues, cells, and body forces.If necessary, the calorie content of the diet is increased if the patient is losing weight significantly, however, the addition of new products requires the agreement of the treating doctor.

Diet before and after therapeutic measures

In the course of treatment and after the course of therapy, operations, the emphasis is on the preparation of a balanced, high-calorie diet. This approach allows you to reduce the impact of medications, procedures, side effects.

When eating food, dishes, it is important to pay attention to the patient’s well-being, state of health.For control, he keeps a diary, where it is necessary to write down the unpleasant sensations that arise when taking food, for example, nausea, they should not be included in the diet in the future.

  • fractional meals;

  • thorough chewing of food;

  • drinking a lot of liquid;

Food recipes for cancer patients

A pressing issue for all cancer sufferers or loved ones of similarly diagnosed patients is how to prepare food for the sick. Note that special manipulations are not required for cooking, because the recipes needed by patients are not very different from ordinary dishes.The main thing is to exclude some prohibited foods from the patient’s diet.

A good solution would be to make light vegetable soups and stews; also, for additional satiety and a special taste, you can add chicken or rabbit pulp to the broth. Be careful with spices, avoid salting, or do not use seasonings at all, as they make it difficult for the digestive tract to digest food.

After the lunch described above, you can dine with stewed turkey or the same rabbit meat.The wonderful, nutritious pulp is especially beneficial for those suffering from advanced lung cancer. Choose brown rice or fresh vegetable salad as a side dish.

Focus on eating fruits and berries. We think you yourself know about the level of benefits of these products, but red and green fruits will additionally reveal the natural properties. Of course, you can do your own culinary research, the main thing is to choose only permitted products.

Nutritional prevention of lung cancer

Proper nutrition, like nothing else, will help the body avoid malignant neoplasms. A healthy diet, especially in the absence of bad habits, including alcohol and cigarettes, will improve health and help protect yourself from lung cancer. Be sure to consume enough fruits with berries, herbs, rabbit or poultry. Give up canned food, fast food, fatty and smoked foods.Homemade vinegar rolls, sausages, and too much sweets are also not the best solution for those looking to avoid cancer.

Note that the preventive diet should be continued after possible treatment. Proper nutrition will reduce the likelihood of a relapse of the disease. Of course, you will have to rebuild your habitual biorhythms for proper nutrition to become a hobby and passion. In this case, the chances of effective treatment are increased.

Remember that lung cancer is a terrible disease that must be dealt with with the utmost care.In addition to food, monitor your sleep patterns, walk frequency, and your own emotional background. Do not try to give up food, following the advice of unqualified “experts”, you just need to restructure your diet.

Why does the body need healthy fats

Until recently, it was believed that foods high in fat were detrimental to health and shape. Especially this statement is believed by women seeking to lose weight. Almost every diet strictly prohibits the use of fatty foods.However, the human body is much more complex and requires healthy fats to feel good.

Correct diet

In an effort to lose weight, products containing healthy fats cannot be completely excluded from the diet. High-calorie food is not so much harmful as a sedentary lifestyle, when the calories received are not used up. Knowing this, many begin to consume more foods, the composition of which is rich in easily digestible carbohydrates. The body, on the other hand, needs a balanced calorie intake from fats, carbohydrates and proteins.It is not at all necessary to replace one with another, the main thing is to control the amount of nutrients. If a person has a balanced diet, then he has good health, a normal metabolism, and the endocrine system is functioning correctly. A low-fat diet leads to poor hair and skin health, nervous disorders, overweight, and a high risk of diabetes.

Not only the choice of foods that help to lose weight is important, but a measured diet, food intake 5-6 times a day.In addition to the three main tricks, two light snacks are required. This allows the body not to stock up on a “rainy day”, but to actively process all incoming food.

Saturated and unsaturated fat

Saturated and unsaturated fatty acids enter the body. The first type has no benefit, moreover, a high amount of such elements disrupts lipid metabolism and raises cholesterol levels. Unsaturated fats help satisfy hunger and normalize metabolic processes.A woman should not exclude such lipids from her diet, since they contribute to the rapid breakdown of excess body fat.

Healthy fats for a woman’s body are important because:

– regulate glucose levels;
– normalize the production of sex hormones;
– necessary for quick weight loss;
– provide energy and vigor.

The list of healthy fats for weight loss includes oleic, palmitic, elaidic, erucic acids. These are monounsaturated fats that have beneficial effects: they strengthen bones, normalize cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease.

The content of healthy fats in the diet is important for those who would like to lose weight, as it promotes the breakdown of excess lipid deposits. Semi-saturated fats help to lose excess weight faster, as they accelerate metabolic processes, reduce hunger, and improve the functioning of the nervous system.

List of food items: note

A source of healthy fats is certain foods that are rich in vitamins and contribute to the health of the body.Among these:

Fish. The list of the right foods includes various marine species: salmon, herring, mackerel, anchovy, tuna. The diet calculation table advises eating seafood several times a week, and fish oil per day requires about 4 grams. All these ingredients are rich in polyunsaturated acids, which are important for normalizing metabolic processes, preventing the risk of hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis.

Meat. Chicken and beef contain healthy fatty acids, but only if they are juvenile meat.To get the maximum benefit for the body, such foods are recommended to be baked or boiled.

Pork lard. This is by no means junk food, as many people tend to think. The vitamins contained in fat normalize cholesterol levels even with a minimum daily requirement of up to 30 grams. The product is well absorbed and rich in monounsaturated acids.

Nuts. These are sources of unsaturated acids, their composition is also rich in vitamins, fiber, protein. Pistachios, walnuts, almonds help to lose weight.However, you should not use them excessively. A small serving of nuts can supplement the diet as a dietary supplement.

Vegetable oil. The great benefits of vegetable fats are well known to everyone. Most of the beneficial substances are found in olive oil, which can be combined with various fresh vegetables. You can also include peanut, flaxseed and sesame oil in your diet, but coconut oil is useful in small quantities to lower bad cholesterol.

Hard cheese. The list includes low-calorie varieties. Cheese is high in protein and can be a good substitute for meat. It energizes the body, improves memory and helps fight insomnia.

Avocado . The benefit for humans is that avocado satisfies the body’s need for fiber, while it does not contain harmful cholesterol. It is included in the table of important ingredients also because it is a source of many vitamins. Avocados are low in sugar, making them great for those looking to lose weight.The fruit helps a person feel full even with severe food restrictions.

Seeds . You can also include flax and chia seeds in the ingredient table. They are a source of Omega-3s and beneficial fatty acids. These ingredients are great for those who prefer plant-based foods without compromising their health. The seeds, upon contact with liquid, secrete mucus, which in the intestines forms a beneficial environment for friendly microorganisms.

Yogurt. Healthy foods are yoghurts without fruit fillers with a lot of sugar. This drink improves digestion, enriches the body with protein and calcium. Fresh fruits and nuts can be added to yogurt.

Bitter chocolate. The list can be supplemented with dark chocolate, which must contain at least 70% cocoa. The tiles contain healthy fatty acids that have a positive effect on well-being. The walls of blood vessels are strengthened, the level of harmful cholesterol decreases, and the work of the heart improves.

Foods rich in healthy fats cannot be excluded from the diet, as they are not the enemy of a slim figure. On the contrary, they contribute to rapid weight loss if consumed in moderation. The body’s daily requirement for them is 30% of the total diet. The main thing is to take into account that the calorie content of the ingredients should not be too high. Then they will be beneficial, improve well-being, and strengthen the immune system. If food with a high calorie content predominates, then with a sedentary lifestyle, you can quickly gain excess weight, which will not be easy to get rid of later.For optimal results, you need to combine proper nutrition and exercise. It is best to avoid strict diets based on just one or a few ingredients.

Table of calorie content of dishes

The calorie content of dishes prepared from several ingredients consists of the calorie content of each component.

Please note that when cooking, the total weight of the dish is usually less than the total weight of all ingredients. Therefore, it is more convenient to calculate the calorie content per serving than per 100 grams of the dish, especially when you do not know how much food is obtained after cooking, but you can estimate the number of servings.

For ease of calculation, do not include the calorie content of the spices.The calorie content of non-starchy vegetables such as cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes can also be ignored – it is very small. A standard bowl of cooked soup or a second course contains 250-270 g, a portion of vegetables or salad – 100-150 g, meat – 100 g raw, cereals – 100 g ready-made. Some low-calorie meals with approximate calories are shown in the table.

Low-calorie drinks include the following variations:

  • Water is an indispensable product throughout a person’s life, since the body consists of 80% water, which means that it requires constant replenishment. The calculation of the amount of fluid is carried out in accordance with the calories consumed for proper nutrition. For example, if a person restricts himself in calories and uses only 1200 kcal, then he must definitely consume 1.2 liters of water per day.Another 0.5 l is added to the calculated amount. You can’t drink while eating – this stretches the stomach, and also before bedtime, since there is a load on the kidneys.
  • Coffee – this drink should not be taken as harmful, since a high-quality product will help the body to invigorate and fill with numerous vitamins and microelements. It is important to use a natural product – it is he who contains the least calories. Coffee is consumed without auxiliary components – sugar and milk, which reduces the calorie content and increases the benefits of the product.Also, pure coffee helps to remove excess fluid from the body.
  • Green tea – reduces appetite when the product is low in calories. Tea has beneficial properties in the form of anti-inflammatory effects.
  • Natural juices are a storehouse of vitamins and microelements. To reduce calorie content, use only freshly squeezed and sugar-free
  • Lemonade – a natural sugar-free product that quenches thirst and has an invigorating effect just as good as coffee. The composition contains only water and lemon, you can use citric acid.

About calculating the daily calorie content

Delicious and low-calorie dishes do not exclude the possibility of making mistakes, which are presented in the form of consuming more calories. It is prohibited to do this, since dietary ingredients should help in losing weight, and not provoke weight gain. Therefore, it is important to correctly calculate the daily calorie intake, which is carried out in two stages.

Please note: The first step is the calculation of the basic exchange rate. To do this, you need to use the formula: 10 * weight + 6.25 * height-5 * age-161.

This is a formula for determining the number of calories to maintain normal functioning. The second stage consists in calculating the final daily ration in accordance with the characteristics of a person’s vital activity.


Here, the coefficients presented in the following form are taken into account:

  • 1.2 – with a sedentary lifestyle;
  • 1.375 – if physical activity is carried out 1-2 times a week;
  • 1.55 – in the case when sports are carried out 3-5 times a week;
  • 1,725 ​​- for active sports fans;
  • 1.9 – for overly active people who prefer to walk and also regularly play sports.

This is the famous Muffin-Geor calorie formula. It should be used whenever a decision is made to prepare low-calorie meals at home for weight loss or weight maintenance.

Important: In order to lose weight with proper nutrition, the calculated number of calories must be reduced by 20%.

For example, if the daily caloric intake is calculated as 1850 kcal, then for weight loss it is necessary to reduce the figure to 1480 kcal.
