Hi,

I have recently been diagnosed with colitis and diverticulitis - lucky me smile

I have to eat low fibre food, am really restricted on veg and fruit, can't eat nuts, seeds, skins of veg or fruit, no raw veg or fruit, etc.
On top of this, I am vegetarian and don't eat fish or eggs either. I also don't like quorn, tofu or any fake meat stuff.
I lost a lot of weight a few years ago, intentionally as I needed to, so now I don't want to undo all that by eating white bread, pasta, etc and want to low carb. I am not able to eat whole meal varieties either.

Any ideas what I can eat, which is low carb but not any of the above?

TIA.

Avocado? Beans and chickpeas? Cheese. And can' t think of much else!
That's a very limited range of food, I can see its going to be hard.

It is hard indeed.
I can't eat chickpeas, beans, corn, peas etc due to the shells on them. At the moment, it seems the only food I can eat is cheese and whilst I love it, I can't live on that alone sad

I think you'd be restricting your diet too much - there wouldn't be enough you can eat.

Cooked veg like carrots.

Coconut milk, full fat greek yogurt, smooth peanut butter, clear soups, (miso). You should probably try to eat tofu or the vegetarian proteins you don't like. They come in lots of different brands / varieties, there might be a few? Taifun smoked tofu is delicious although you'd probably have to avoid the one with almond and sesame seed and the Weiner sausages by the same brand are really nice although expensive.

Melon? As you don't eat the peel, as long as its ripe? Stewed or baked apple?

Try Huel it's a nutritionally complete food shake. It's vegan and has all the nutrients you need. You can add coffee and make energy bars with it and a lot more. It's cheap too!
Good luck!
