Styles in diets change like everything else. Large amount of milk and cream and frequent meal snacks are no longer needed because of modern medicines. Roughage such as bran will not hurt an ulcer and may be taken. It was forbidden in older diets. Milk was the main stay of diets for many years, then was removed from many ulcer diets because it slightly elevated acid output. You may safely take milk. About 20% of patients are milk intolerant and may get crampy gas pains and diarrhea if they take a lot of milk. If this happens to you, give us a call.

Remember that only cigarettes, aspiring, and arthritis medicines have been proven to cause ulcers. Diets by themselves will not cause or cure ulcers. This diet is recommended as it may lessen discomfort in some patients with ulcers or heart burn.

BRAT Diet | The Oregon Clinic

Nutrition for Nausea, Vomiting or Diarrhea

Nutrition for nausea, vomiting or diarrhea consists of foods that are bland and gentle on the stomach. If you have nausea or vomiting, it may be hard to hold down food. Some foods may even make your symptoms worse. If you are experiencing diarrhea, the diet suggested below may help solidify your stools.

You may have heard of the BRAT diet which stands for Bananas, Rice, Apples, and Toast. The BRAT diet was often recommended for nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, but is no longer because of how restrictive it is. Below are lists of foods to focus on and avoid when experiencing nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, but there are many more foods that can be included.


  • Soft fruits: bananas, applesauce, avocado, pumpkin, canned fruit (packed in water not heavy syrup), and melons
  • Steamed or boiled vegetables: carrots, green beans, potatoes, and squash 
  • Low-fiber starches: white bread, white rice, saltine crackers, cream of wheat, instant oatmeal, and noodles
  • Unseasoned skinless baked chicken or turkey, scrambled eggs, yogurt and kefir
  • Drinks: bone broth, apple juice, coconut water, Pedialyte, weak tea
  • Homemade oral rehydration solution to prevent dehydration: 1 Liter of clean or boiled water, mix in 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 6 teaspoons of sugar and stir until both salt and sugar are completely dissolved. Cool down the water to room temperature or cooler before drinking.


  • Avoid milk and dairy products for three days. Yogurt and kefir are okay 
  • Avoid fried, fatty, greasy and spicy foods
  • Avoid pork, veal, salmon, and sardines
  • Avoid raw vegetables such as parsnips, beets, sauerkraut, corn on the cob, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and onions
  • Avoid citrus fruits: pineapples, oranges, grapefruits, lemons and limes
  • Other fruits to avoid:  tomatoes, cherries, grapes, figs, raisins, and seeded berries
  • Avoid extremely hot or cold beverages
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Avoid coffee and caffeinated sodas
  • Avoid added sugars and sweets like candy, soda and most juice


  • Choose liquids that contain some sugar and salt to prevent dehydration, such as Pedialyte or apple juice with a pinch of salt.
  • Rest and avoid exertion to give your body a chance to recover.
  • Consult your health care provider about taking medication.
  • Nausea and vomiting may have different causes. Please contact your healthcare provider if these symptoms last more than 24 hours and seek immediate care if you cannot hold down clear liquids.
  • Diarrhea may be “acute”, beginning suddenly and resolving over a few days with dietary changes, or of a “chronic” ongoing process. Causes of diarrhea lasting more than 3 days should be discussed with your healthcare provider.
  • Additional symptoms that are concerning are: fever, weight loss, lightheadedness (feeling of faintness), rectal bleeding or abdominal pain.


First six hours: 

In the immediate six or so hours after vomiting has stopped, it is best to give your stomach a rest. Following a period of one to two hours, suck on hard candy or popsicles (no chewing). Then progress to ice chips or sips of water if nausea persists.


First 24 hours (Day One):

Gradually add clear liquids if the vomiting has ceased. Beginning with a sip or two every ten minutes is a good way to start. Suggestions include water, apple juice, electrolyte beverage, weak tea, Jell-O (in liquid or gelatin form), broth or bouillon (clear base from a non-greasy soup). If symptoms of nausea or vomiting return, begin the process again, taking nothing by mouth for an hour or so.


Day Two: 

Begin to add bland, low-fat foods as listed above, like bananas, rice, applesauce, crackers, cooked cereals (Farina, Cream of Wheat), toast and jelly, yogurt, cooked carrots, and chicken or turkey. Eat small meals every few hours. 


Day Three: 

Progress to a “regular” diet if symptoms have improved. Continue to eat small meals every few hours. If still having symptoms, continue to focus on bland foods listed above.

Bland Diet Pantry Basics | Cook For Your Life

There are many reasons a patient may need to follow a bland diet. It is typically prescribed in the initial weeks after stomach or intestinal surgery, or more typically if you are suffering from stomach ulcers, or from other gastric upsets like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, gas or heartburn, many of which can be side effects of chemo. Bland foods are soft, not very spicy, and low in fat and fiber. It is best to consume small, frequent meals while following this diet. We recommend 4-6 small portion meals per day.

When patients are told they must follow a bland diet, the restrictive nature of the food list can leave them wondering if they will ever enjoy their food again. Even the name ‘Bland Diet’ inspires dread, as you expect to be eating a lot of tasteless foods. While it is true that some foods must be avoided on this diet, the good news is there are lots of tasty items you can have that are both nutritious and enjoyable.

As with any dietary change, the secret lies in being prepared. Here are some of the bland diet heroes we feature in many of our bland diet recipes. Keep these staples on hand and you’ll always be able to create a fabulous dish that’s anything but “blah!”


The fiber from grains can be both beneficial and detrimental to a patient undergoing cancer treatment. While we usually recommend increasing your fiber intake, during times of gastric upset this is not always advisable. When following a bland diet keep your pantry stocked up with low fiber ‘white’ grains. These include white flour, white pasta, and regular couscous, white rice, and rice noodles – are all excellent low-fiber sources of carbohydrate which won’t irritate your gut. Keep a stock of refined cereals like cream of wheat, farina, and cornflakes for a quick meal or snack options. Pass on the whole wheat bread too. Look for good quality white bread; softer sourdough is our favorite.

Fruits and Vegetables

While following a bland diet, fresh, raw fruits and veggies can be hard to digest. Steaming, poaching, or baking them can provide nutrition that’s easier on the system. To minimize the amount of fiber you’re getting, peel all fresh fruits and veggies and remove any small seeds before cooking. Starchy vegetables like white potatoes and sweet potatoes are great to have on hand as they store well and can be used in a variety of dishes that provide comfort – just remember to peel them. Frozen fruits and veggies are an easy, nutritious standby. Frozen vegetables cook quickly, and frozen fruits make great compotes that keep well in the fridge. However, you will need to avoid frozen raspberries and strawberries unless you strain them once they’re cooked to remove their seeds. Canned vegetables are another easily digested option – especially staples such as carrots, green beans, and peas. Canned applesauce and fruits in water such as fruit cocktail or peaches work well too – try eating them with plain yogurt or added to a smoothie for a sweet treat. Applesauce is very easy to make at home, keeps well, and will have a lot less added sugar than store bought.

Fridge & Freezer Foods

Lean proteins like fish or poultry are suitable for the bland diet, so make sure to keep these in your freezer for fast high-protein meals. Eggs are another nutritious bland diet favorite as they are naturally low fat, high protein, and fiber free. For vegans, tofu offers high quality, low fiber vegetable protein. When buying dairy, choose low fat or fat-free options to minimize the risks of adverse effects. Unsweetened milk alternatives such as soy or other types of nut milk are also suitable.


Fats: Although high-fat foods can cause gastric issues, small amounts of extra virgin olive oil can be used to add both healthy monounsaturated fats and delicious flavor to your food. Coconut oil can also be used. Coconut oil is high in MCT fats that are more easily absorbed in the body than other fats, but unlike olive oil, it is a saturated fat that should be used very sparingly.

Spices: While very hot spices are not recommended on the bland diet, there are still many herbs and sweet spices you can use to add flavor. Stock up on fresh sweet spices like ginger root, cinnamon stick, nutmeg, cloves, and star anise; dried herbs like rosemary, thyme, fennel seed, bay leaves; and where you can, try fresh herbs like parsley, basil, mint, and dill. Onions and garlic should be avoided unless cooked whole and removed before eating. If tolerated, leeks or scallions can be used in small amounts to add flavor, however, a pinch of the South Asian spice asafetida (a.k.a. “hing”) can safely be used to add onion/garlicky flavor to soups, veggies, and stews. And last but not least, let’s not forget good old sea salt. It will help bring out the flavor in your food without upsetting your system.


Anyone on a bland diet should avoid alcohol and caffeine as they are gastric stimulants, which can increase the frequency of diarrhea or cause stomach cramping. Instead, choose soothing fruit and herbal teas that provide the same warm pick-me-up, and if you need to, sweeten them with a touch of honey or sugar. Fennel seed, fresh ginger root, lemon zest, and mint leaves can all be used to make soothing digestive teas.

Once you have the basics in place, you will find a bland diet is quite enjoyable. Our bland diet recipes will inspire you to get started.

Bland Diet: Foods to Eat and Foods to Avoid

A bland diet is often recommended to help treat digestive problems or to assist the stomach or gastrointestinal tract recover after surgery or illness. If you have been told to follow a diet containing bland foods, you may be wondering what exactly a bland diet is and what foods you should or shouldn’t eat on this type of diet. But, don’t worry. A diet containing bland meals doesn’t have to mean tasteless or without any color. Bland diets contain many delicious foods that are easy to digest and won’t irritate the stomach.

The dictionary describes the word bland as “lacking strong features, uninteresting, and flavorless”. The good news is that a bland diet can be full of flavor, tasty, and appetizing. For example, meals you can cook on a bland diet can contain many types of meat, bread, eggs, fish, and some dairy products. You can also enjoy delicious snacks and desserts like peanut butter, some fruits, and ice cream.

In the context of a bland diet, foods you shouldn’t eat are generally spicy, fatty or fried food that are difficult for the body to digest. Also, many raw vegetables should be avoided in bland meals and these instead should be prepared by steaming or boiling them. So, the bland diet is usually a way to help your digestive system recover by putting less stress on it until you can eat more typical foods again.

In this article, you will find out reasons why some people should follow a diet containing bland meals. I’ll also look at the many different types of food that you should eat on the bland diet and why certain foods should be avoided.

Why Some People Follow the Bland Diet

The bland diet can help to treat various gastrointestinal problems like heartburn, diarrhea, ulcers, vomiting, and a sour stomach. Bland diets are also useful in helping you to recover from a gastric bypass operation or stomach surgery because they eliminate foods that can irritate the gastrointestinal tissue.

Doctors at the Mayo Clinic recommend following a diet containing bland, easy-to-digest foods in cases of gastroenteritis or food poisoning. Eating foods that are soft and not spicy help to reduce inflammation and pain and prevent further vomiting. Until you recover from gastroenteritis, doctors also recommend avoiding dairy products.1

A bland diet can help you recover if you suffer from a peptic or stomach ulcer. For example, The Medical Clinics of North America recommends staying away from foods that increase stomach acid. Some of these are spicy foods, alcohol, and caffeinated drinks. They say that bland and ulcer diets are useful if used for a short time.2

Registered dietitian, Dr. Jennifer K. Nelson advises that if you have had surgery to remove a gallbladder, avoiding foods that are not allowed on the bland diet can speed up recovery. She suggests eating lean cuts of meat and fish as well as vegetables and fruit. You should avoid fatty and greasy foods. Just after surgery, it is also best to avoid foods containing fiber but to gradually increase fiber intake as you recover.3

Foods recommended on a bland diet can help you recover quicker from an upset stomach and diarrhea. The Schiffert Health Center says that if you have an upset stomach and diarrhea, then bland, low-fat foods can help speed up the healing process. You should avoid fatty, fried foods as well as spicy foods. Also, it is best to avoid milk products because they can make your diarrhea worse.4

Foods You Can Eat on the Bland Diet

There are many delicious and nutritious foods that you can incorporate into a bland diet. Many of these foods can be prepared in a tasty and appetizing way and at the same time not cause extra stress on your digestive system. The foods in a bland diet are all types of food that are easy to digest and won’t cause more irritation to your intestines.

Meat / Fish / Poultry

If you have to follow a bland diet for medical reasons or if you have had stomach upset, it is important that any protein sources are cooked in a way to keep them tender to easily digest. Foods like chicken, beef, and turkey, can all be eaten on a bland diet if they are tender cuts and are boiled, steamed, baked, or roasted. The same is true for fish and shellfish.

Here is a list of protein sources you can use in the bland diet:

  • Beef
  • Ham (as long as it’s not cured or smoked)
  • Lamb
  • Chicken
  • Pork
  • Veal
  • Eggs (boiled, scrambled, poached)
  • Whitefish
  • Shellfish

Vegetables to eat on the bland diet

Vegetables are a part of any healthy diet and should be incorporated into the bland diet. The vitamins and minerals in vegetables can help your body recover quicker from illness and surgery. To make sure that vegetables can be easily digested, they should be boiled or steamed. Steaming is preferable because it keeps more of the vegetables nutritional content.

Steam cooking is cooking at a lower temperature than boiling or baking, and thus the impact on the vitamins and minerals is smaller. In addition, it saves the cooking water and preserve most of the minerals in the food. You can steam almost all vegetables – zucchini, squash, carrots and so on.

Using canned or frozen vegetables is also allowed in a bland diet.5  The vegetables on the list of allowed foods in the bland diet are the type that won’t increase activity in the intestines that cause gas or bloating. Here is a list of vegetables that you can use to cook bland meals and use as part of the bland diet:

  • Carrots
  • Beets
  • Celery
  • Eggplant
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Potatoes
  • Cooked or canned tomatoes

You can also consume vegetables on the bland diet by making delicious vegetable juices. Remember that for some people, tomatoes and tomato juice may cause stomach irritation.

Fruits to eat on the bland diet

There are a number of delicious fruits you can enjoy that are in no way bland or tasteless. As with vegetables, it’s important that the fruits in the bland diet are cooked, canned, or juiced before consuming. It’s also important to make sure and remove any seeds and skin from the fruits to avoid causing irritation in the sensitive gastrointestinal tissue.

Some of the best fruits to eat on the bland diet are:

  • Stewed apples
  • Canned peaches or pears
  • Ripe bananas
  • Citrus fruits (although these may irritate the digestive tract of people with heartburn)
  • Melon

Dairy products to consume on the bland diet

Most low-fat dairy products can be enjoyed as part of a meal, snack, or desserts on a bland diet. So, you can choose from the following “bland” dairy products:

  • Low-fat varieties of yogurt, cheese, and milk
  • Ice-cream that is low in fat and doesn’t contain nuts
  • Cottage cheese

Note – Depending on your reason for following a bland diet, you may need to avoid or limit milk and dairy products. Dr. Neil K. Kaneshiro on Medline Plus says that, in some people, dairy products may cause more gas and bloating and make your diarrhea worse.

Grains to consume on the bland diet

Although many diets encourage the use of whole grain products like wholemeal bread and wholemeal pasta for their fiber content, whole grains are not recommended in the bland diet because they put extra strain on the digestive system.

However, baked products using refined flour are on the list of allowed foods on the bland diet. You can enjoy the following grain foods on the bland diet:

  • White bread, bagels, and other refined white flour baked foods.
  • “White” pasta
  • Refined cereals such as cream of wheat

Other foods for the bland diet

You can also enjoy the following foods if you have been advised to follow the bland diet for gastrointestinal issues:

  • Tofu (unless you avoid soy based products)
  • Peanut butter (smooth peanut butter, not the crunchy variety)
  • Custard
  • Salt and sugar
  • Soup, especially broth
  • Weak tea

Foods to Avoid on a Bland Diet

The purpose of a bland diet is to avoid any kind of food that irritates your digestive tract and causes your intestines to work harder. In general, if you follow the bland diet, you should avoid foods that have strong flavors, are spicy, and high in fat.

It is important to remember that some foods that are allowed to be part of bland diet recipes may not suit everyone. For example, tomatoes are classed as a “bland” food, however, people who have acid reflux or gastroesophageal reflux disease are usually advised to avoid tomatoes because of their acidic content. Also, low-fat dairy products should be avoided if you suffer from diarrhea, even though they are on the “bland diet allowed food list”.6

If you feel that a certain food irritates your stomach or increases abdominal pain, you should stop eating it to see if it helps.

Here is a general list of foods that are not recommended for consumption while following a bland diet.

Meat / Fish / Poultry

Most meat, fish, and poultry can be consumed in the bland diet. You should avoid adding spices or other strong flavors when preparing bland meals. To prepare these protein sources on the bland diet, avoid frying meat, poultry, or fish.

Also, many berries like strawberries and raspberries contain a large number of seeds and should be avoided because they can irritate a sensitive digestive system.

  • Pickled foods like gherkins and sauerkraut

Practical Advice for the Bland Diet

The reason for following a bland diet is to help your digestive system heal and become healthy again. After following a bland diet, most people are able to return to eating foods they used to enjoy. Also, many people find that the bland diet helps them make positive lifestyle changes in the long run. For example, many people find that after spending a period of time on the bland diet, they are able to easily cut out a lot of unhealthy foods and fake foods, like fried and fatty foods from their diet for good.

Here are some practical and helpful tips to make the bland diet a success for you:

  • When consuming food and beverages, do this slowly. Always chew food thoroughly before swallowing and don’t gulp down drinks.

90,000 Special menu: how to eat when infected with coronavirus | Articles

A large percentage of Russians have already had the coronavirus, and recovery after it has proved to be a difficult test for many. The problems associated with postcoid rehabilitation have been mentioned more than once. One of the key factors in successful recovery from illness is proper nutrition. Doctors recommend in such cases a varied diet that includes foods with anti-inflammatory properties. Fresh vegetables, fish, legumes are especially important.

Therapeutic nutrition

According to the infectious disease doctor, head of the rehabilitation department of the Vidnovskaya Regional Clinical Hospital (VRKH) Svetlana Malinovskaya, it is necessary to adhere to a special diet after an illness.

– It is very important for these people to add complex carbohydrates, such as whole grains, to their diet. You also need to eat more yoghurts, pickled cucumbers and beans, green vegetables and herbs, eat salads – kale, romano and others, replace the usual sunflower oil with linseed oil, ” she said on the VRKB page on Instagram.

In addition, Malinovskaya recommended drinking kombucha and bifidok. She emphasized that such products strengthen the immune system and help restore intestinal microflora. The expert also advised adding walnuts, almonds and pumpkin seeds to breakfast.

– They are high in omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is also very important to get 8-9 hours of sleep a day. This is another way to strengthen the immune system, – said Malinovskaya.

The UK Dietetic Association’s recommendations for people recovering from coronavirus in hospitals are based on five theses.First, it is necessary to eat foods with a high protein content of in order to restore the body’s energy capabilities as quickly as possible. Secondly, in the absence of appetite, high-calorie drinks can be useful. Thirdly, you need to drink more liquid . Fourthly, should be eaten often and little by little. Finally, in case of loss of taste, it makes sense to eat more spicy food, and in case of nausea, it makes sense to eat more simple and bland.

British nutritionists recommend eating beans, meat (but as little red and processed as possible) and nuts for protein, skim or soy milk, yoghurts, and at least five handfuls of fruits and vegetables a day.

Mediterranean Menu

Medical Director of the Russian office of the medical service company AP Companies Ilya Rapoport in an interview with Izvestia noted an increase in the number of complaints about the consequences of the disease both in Russia and in Europe. According to him, disorders in the work of the blood coagulation system, leading to thrombosis, at the moment appear to be the most serious health risk for people who have undergone COVID-19.

These risks pose a particular danger to patients with cardiovascular disease, obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes , explained Rapoport.- Accordingly, in addition to medication methods of preventing complications, non-medication, such as a healthy diet, exercise, healthy lifestyle, can reduce the risk of thrombosis.

Currently, he said, clinical studies are underway regarding what food components or what diets can be used to help people infected with coronavirus.

– Phytochemicals – phenolic compounds, carotenes, alkaloids, terpenes, peptides and bioactive lipid molecules – are among the foods rich in biologically active compounds with potential antithrombotic and anti-inflammatory properties, – the expert explains.- The latter group of molecules includes monounsaturated fatty acids (for example, oleic), omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (for example, α-linolenic, eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic), fat-soluble vitamins (D and E) and bioactive polar lipids (for example, phospholipids and sphingolipids glycolipids).

The listed compounds are found, according to Rapoport, in fish and seafood, fish oils, vegetable oils, nuts and seeds, in dairy and whole grains, in wine and fermented drinks, in fruits and berries.

– On this basis, according to the scientific hypothesis, nutritional models such as the Mediterranean diet or the DASH diet can be recommended to patients after suffering a coronavirus infection: with a high intake of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fermented foods, moderate consumption of fish, dairy products and low consumption of processed products, – concluded the interlocutor of Izvestia.

Energy conservation

The Center for Hygiene Education under Rospotrebnadzor on its website notes that patients often have decreased appetite, while additional body resources are needed to fight infection.This leads to a loss of muscle mass.

– It is important to provide complete, high-calorie, protein and vitamin-rich nutrition in the process of illness and during recovery , – says the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor. – Protein is mainly found in meat, fish, poultry, cheese, eggs, dairy products, bread and legumes. Additional protein may be required for weight loss due to illness.Eat small meals more often, distribute meals evenly throughout the day . Don’t be afraid of healthy, high-fat foods like high-fat yogurt, whole milk, and high-fat cheese. Use butter more often. Eat dairy products like whole milk, buttermilk, yogurt, and cottage cheese with every meal. Drink 1.5-2 liters of liquid a day. Coffee, tea, diet soft drinks do not contain energy or protein. Fruit juices can be preferred.

Experts advise to eat in small portions and more often – preferably every two hours.And also to eat soft and liquid food, “so that food and drink take away as little energy as possible.” You can “cut food into small pieces or grind it in a blender and drink it through a straw if necessary.”

Soft diet after maxillofacial surgery

Soft diet after maxillofacial surgery

The soft diet after maxillofacial surgery includes fluids and soft foods that are easy to chew and swallow, thus not putting any stress on the wound and allowing it to heal. Oral operations leave the mouth very gentle, characterized in that the slightest pressure on the gums and other parts of the mouth can cause excruciating pain. People who have undergone tooth extraction are so painful to chew, even rice. In such situations, a soft diet for the patient. A soft surgery diet includes foods that are soft in texture, easily swallowed with minimal application of strength to the jaws, teeth and the entire oral cavity, thereby contributing to minimal pain, as well as enhancing the treatment of oral wounds.These soft foods will in no way disturb the stitches and help the healing process. Let’s take a look at a list of different foods to eat after maxillofacial surgery.

— These 8 foods that are easy to digest can take you by surprise

Sticky, spicy, fried or seasoned foods should be eliminated from a bland diet.Such food can irritate the wound cavity and can also interfere with the healing process. These soft foods should be soft, not pungent or sour.


Fruit with skin and seeds will be difficult to chew. Biting into the seeds will only have a sharp edge of burning pain throughout the mouth. In addition, they can get stuck in a tooth socket or in a maxillofacial wound surgery. Sour fruits such as pineapple, grapefruit, oranges are also harsh on wounds, thus not included in a bland diet after maxillofacial surgery.This is why the list of permitted fruits is limited:
Mashed berries (de-peeled and de-handed)
Ripe banana
Puree sweet potatoes
Whipped peas (peas mixed in milk)
Avocado slices
Peel and de – tomato seeds
Pumpkin puree
Eggs and dairy products
Scrambled eggs
Cream cheese
Yogurt is not always recommended as it contains live yeast that has the ability to interfere with the healing process.

Tender cooked veal, beef and lamb
Baked or stewed chicken or turkey

Cooked boneless salmon
Minced meat
Grain and bread
Oatmeal Pasta
Wheat cream
Soft bread without crust
French toast without crust
Creamy soups (small portions or noodles)
Fruit smoothies
Fruit juices
Vegetable juices
Herbal tea
Should be consumed low- acidic fruit juices such as pear, apple, or grapefruit juice.While having drinks, it is important to refrain from using straws. This is because suction can lead to a condition called dry socket. When a tooth has been extracted, a blot of clot forms in the socket of the tooth, which is very important for the healing of the area. However, absorption can cause this clot to dissolve, thereby contributing to a condition called dry nest.

Ice cream
Fruit mousse
Homemade trivia
Plain melted chocolate
Delicate biscuit (no nuts or dried fruit)
Plain brownie
Often desserts are available in stores that contain various additions like nuts, dried fruits, chopped candies, etc. It is important to buy plain ice cream and cakes. If you can only eat homemade pudding.

All of these mild post-maxillofacial products mentioned above should not be consumed immediately after surgery. After surgery, you will have to stick to a liquid diet because the wounds will be very fresh. At this time, tender meat and bread is out of the question! Gradually, as the wound heals, mashed potatoes and semi-solid foods can be added to the diet. In addition, the soft food diet will vary from one person to another depending on the severity of the wound and the type of maxillofacial surgery.Your doctor will advise you on a suitable soft diet for you!

That is why to the question of whether a diet is needed to prevent the disease, the answer is unequivocal – it is needed, both during periods of exacerbation and outside of them.

Basic Diet Principles

To determine what diet is necessary for hemorrhoids in each case, the doctor “Es Class Clinic Ulyanovsk” will help. However, there are principles common to all that allow the intestines to work gently and regularly. All of them contribute to the softening of feces and the activation of peristalsis. It is:

  • fruits, mostly ripe and sweet;
  • cereals, preferably oatmeal, buckwheat, barley and pearl barley;
  • bread is permissible only from coarse flour, preferably with bran;
  • meat should be lean, not roasted, lightly or completely unflavored;

Postoperative diet for hemorrhoids

The postoperative diet has its own characteristics. After removing hemorrhoids, food must be light for the whole body, digestive system and rectum, so that when it leaves, it does not damage postoperative scars.

  • Immediately after surgery, fasting is required for 24 hours. At the same time, it is very important to drink enough fluids so that when you start eating, conditions favorable for constipation are not created.
  • Further, the food should be fractional – every 2-3 hours. The postoperative diet completely excludes the consumption of any foods that contribute to gas formation (these are almost all raw vegetables and fruits), spicy and pickled dishes, bread, muffins and sweets, milk, orange juice and, of course, alcohol. Soft cereals, lean meat and dairy products are welcome. Everything should be steamed or thoroughly boiled. It is very important to consume chopped food.

The postoperative diet is maintained until the end of the recovery period.Next, you need to move on to the above-described general diet for patients with hemorrhoids and constipation.

List of picnic products


Pork. For barbecue, neck, brisket, loin and kidney part are suitable ( lumbar part , rump , back part of loin and). Also well suited for roasting on the wire rack tenderloin and meat on the bone ribs, loin on the bone, brisket on the bone .

Lamb. Best roast leg of lamb , ribs or shoulder blade . Only you need to eat right away in the heat of the heat, lamb has one unpleasant property – it quickly freezes.

Beef. Suitable for barbecue tenderloin, sirloin, rump, thick edge and thin edge, inner part of the hind leg .

Chicken. This is, of course, chicken legs and wings. You have to be careful with white chicken breast: it is easy to dry out.

Any meat, like offal, it is better to pre-marinate . It’s good to do this at home, in advance. One option is vegetable oil + acid + onion. The oil covers the pieces of meat with a film that prevents them from drying out during the frying process and remains juicy on the inside. Use any oil without a pronounced aroma, for example, olive oil (but unrefined sunflower or mustard oil is not worth taking, they interrupt the taste of meat).Acid is lemon juice, dry wine, or natural vinegar (one thing, not all at once). Onions enrich the taste of barbecue like nothing else.

It is better not to take boiled sausage – it quickly weathers in the fresh air. It’s another matter if you are going to fry it over coals.

A variety of sandwiches and sandwiches are often taken for a picnic. It is best to cut all the ingredients at home – bread, meat, cheese, and so on – and put them in separate bags, plastic containers, wrap them in special plastic wrap or foil. The sandwiches themselves can be made right in nature – so they turn out to be much more attractive.

3. Fish and seafood

For the preparation of grilled fish oily fish with dense meat is ideal – salmon, salmon, trout, sturgeon, mackerel, catfish, cod, catfish, carp.

Additional vegetable fat for marinating fish can be omitted and just white wine, soy sauce or lemon juice. The fish will remain juicy if, when cutting, you try to preserve the skin as much as possible (without scales, of course). For larger fish, it is better to use fillets or cut the steaks for grilling. Wipe the fish before cooking – it should be as dry as possible.

On skewers you can cook large shrimps , on the wire rack shrimps , squid and scallops are good.

Picnic potatoes

7. Champignons

On a wire rack, and in some cases on a skewer, mushrooms turn out well – in the spring it is easiest to use champignons .The main difficulty lies in the fact that mushrooms, as a rule, lose moisture very quickly and dry out.

10. Vegetable oil

If we are talking about loaves of white bread, take it at the rate of 1 loaf for 2-3 people. If it remains, it’s okay: it’s much worse when there are still a lot of goodies, and the bread has already run out. In general, various cakes “work” better than any loaves on a picnic.

12. Fruit

Suitable for a picnic and fruits – pre-washed and packed in special plastic containers. The best “transportation” for groceries is a large basket – this will not only look more stylish and appetizing than a pile of bags, but also guarantee that the food will not be wrinkled.And it is more convenient to get a large number of products from the basket.

Tea and coffee

If you can’t imagine a picnic without hot tea and coffee, take it with you in a thermos. Rinse the thermos with boiling water to keep it warm. Tea lovers can take a thermos with pre-brewed tea – or with boiling water and tea bags separately.If there are coffee-au-lait lovers in the company, heat up some milk (but don’t boil it!) And pour it into another small thermos. Iced tea is also good!

15. Alcohol

At a picnic, it is best to refrain from excessive consumption of alcohol and, in particular, from strong alcohol. In the open air, you will quickly “get carried away” and you will want to sleep – and you still have to go home.

It is better to take beer or wine with you for a picnic.

And, of course, you need salt and a mill with black pepper! Don’t forget these two main spices.
