3. Modify Your Diet

Another way to prepare for a colonoscopy is to modify your diet a bit. Days before the procedure, begin to cleanse your system. Start consuming foods low in fiber that are easy to digest so they won't stay in your system. Some good choices are fish, eggs, lean chicken, lean meat, rice, pasta, and white bread. You can also eat thoroughly cooked vegetables and peeled and seedless fruits. It's also advisable to avoid taking daily vitamins or supplements. Your doctor can tell you whether you should continue or stop taking prescription medications.
