2. Spicy Foods
In many household cuisines, cooking with spices helps to enhance the flavor and make dishes taste amazing. Spices such as cayenne pepper and chili powder should be avoided if you have diverticulosis. When you have diverticulosis, it is important to avoid foods that promote urgent rushes to the restroom, not to mention the spicy nature in cayenne and chili help the condition to worsen. If you enjoy spicy foods, it is best to avoid these whenever possible, but the amount of spices you can consume before having bowel issues will vary from person to persons. If you suspect that you have diverticulosis, consider discussing your symptoms with your doctor.
