There are a few things you can eat before a colonoscopy to help make the procedure go smoothly. First, you should avoid eating any foods that may cause constipation or gas. This includes high-fiber foods like beans, broccoli, and cabbage. You should also avoid fatty foods like fried chicken or burgers. Instead, focus on eating light, easily digestible foods like soup, crackers, or applesauce. Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated, but avoid alcohol and caffeine as they can dehydrate you. The day before your procedure, you’ll need to follow a special diet called a clear liquid diet. This means avoiding solid foods and only consuming liquids that are clear in color. Some examples include water, broth, apple juice, and sports drinks. You’ll also need to take a laxative to help empty your bowels before the procedure. Following these steps will help ensure that your colonoscopy goes as smoothly as possible.
