There are many foods and beverages that do not contain fibre. Proteins such as eggs, most meat and poultry do not contain fibre. Neither do fats such as butter, whole fat mayonnaise, natural oils and margarine. Milk and most plain dairy products including plain yogurt, pudding and cottage cheese are also fibre-free.

Sweets such as hard candies are normally made from sugar and flavourings and therefore do not contain fibre, unless added. Marshmallows, plain gelatine desserts, honey, sugar and salt also lack any fibre content. Various beverages such as coffee, tea and carbonated soft drinks like cola normally do not contain fibre. Also strained fruit juices, except prune juice, do not include fibre.

Although all food types mentioned should not contain fibre please always take time to check the ingredients on the label, as fibre may have been added to the product. You may find eating small frequent meals and snacks during the day will be easier to manage than three larger meals, especially if your appetite is poor.

If you try and aim for three small meals each day with two to three snacks or nourishing drinks in between. Meals and drinks should be high in calories and protein to meet your daily requirements. Drinks, snacks and meals can be fortified to make them more nutritious.

Fibre is the part of fruits, vegetables and grains not digested by your body. A low-fibre diet limits these foods and, in doing so, limits the amount of undigested materials that pass through your large intestine and lessens stool bulk. Eating a low-fibre diet will limit your bowel movements and help ease diarrhoea or other symptoms of abdominal conditions, such as abdominal pain. Once your digestive system has returned to normal, you can slowly reintroduce fibre into your diet.

If you do not follow the low-fibre diet as prescribed by your doctor, you risk irritating or obstructing your digestive tract.
