The Bland Diet

What it is: Lacking a glamorous name, the bland diet isn’t as popular as the fad diets heard about so often in pop culture. Instead, this meal program is usually prescribed by doctors for patients suffering from stomach ulcers, chronic gastritis, dyspepsia, bowel problems, reflux esophagitis, nausea, gas, or vomiting.

How it works: The bland diet is simple. Eat bland foods in order to not agitate digestive problems. This plan is also known as the “soft diet” thanks to the soft foods that are a part of the menu. Foods should be lightly spiced, low fiber, and never raw or fried.

What you do: Those on the bland diet are restricted to eating only things that are easily digested and soft. This means that raw fruits and vegetables, highly seasoned or spicy foods, and all things fried must be eliminated. Alcohol, coffee, tea, cocoa, pepper of all kinds, chili powder, and chocolate should be avoided as well. Substitute cream of wheat for bran cereals, applesauce instead of raw fruits, and cooked carrots or green beans instead of raw vegetables.

Benefits: This diet is usually prescribed by a medical professional so its validity can be trusted. It is perfect for those suffering from digestive health concerns.

Downside: The bland diet is not recommended as a long term meal plan and you should consult a doctor before following this program.
