Immediately after the colonoscopy low-fat and easily digestible foods spare the still empty digestive tract. Tea, still water and vegetable juices are well suited to compensate for the loss of fluid. As soon as your bowel movements have normalised, you can start eating more varied foods again to rebuild your intestinal flora after a colonoscopy.
A balanced, vitamin-rich and fibre-rich diet is particularly suitable for this. Wholemeal products, fruit and vegetables, nuts, legumes and dairy products provide valuable nutrients and minerals that serve as a nutritional basis for beneficial intestinal bacteria. Finished products, alcohol, simple carbohydrates and sugar, on the other hand, support the growth of undesirable bacterial strains. It is therefore advisable to avoid such foods or replace them with nutrient-rich, unprocessed alternatives.
