Healthy High Calorie Low Fiber Foods

A high-calorie low fiber diet is intended for people with certain conditions and diseases that causes their colon to become sensitive. This includes certain cancers, bowel surgery, or irritable bowel disease.

The kind of foods and amount of fiber a person can tolerate will depend on their specific situation, and they should consult a health care provider. The list below is intended as a list of suggestions to aid people who require a high calorie, but low fiber, diet.

In general stewing or pureeing foods can break down their fibers, making them softer and more palatable. High-calorie low fiber foods include seafood, meats, dairy, eggs, and tofu. It can also include limited amounts of low-fiber fruits and vegetables like cucumbers and melons. For those desperate for variety, we also included baby foods, which tend to be lower in fiber.
