2. Red Meat

Research has found eating too much red meat can cause symptoms of diverticulitis to flare up more often. So, it's a good idea to limit beef, pork, and lamb, and other red meats. These should be limited all the time to avoid exacerbating symptoms, and not just as a measure to ease discomfort once it's started. As an alternative, patients can eat white meat -- fish or poultry, or plant-based forms of protein.
