If you have diarrhea what should you eat?

I am hungry but I want to eat what I should.


Answer by  DrMom (854)

There is a diet specifically for diarrhea called the BRATT diet. It consists of bananas, rice, applesauce, toast and tea. If your illness is short term, these things are bland enough not to cause you distress and they will give your intestines a rest. Additionally, drink plenty of water to avoid getting dehydrated, especially if your diarrhea is severe.

The BRAT diet is best when you have diarrhea. BRAT stands for bannana, rice, apple sauce, and toast. The primary thing to remember is to keep the diet bland, and drink plenty of water to prevent dehydration.

Focus on foods that are binding and not offensive to your stomach. Rice or toast are two good options. Also drink plenty of liquids, water in particular, to prevent dehydration.

What I would do if I was in this position would be to eat food from the dairy products. Another thing that has also worked is to eat foods that are high in fiber and make sure you are drinking things like Gatorade which will replenish minerals that are lost.
