The RDN’s Ultimate Guide to Mediterranean-Style Eating for Patients with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis

One effective and popular dietary approach among people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a Mediterranean diet. However, a high-fiber plant-based diet can present unique challenges for patients with active Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis because rarely can patients tolerate fibrous foods.

What’s included?

  • An overview of the Mediterranean diet, describing basic principles and fundamental do’s and don’ts
