Endometriosis and Diet: What You Can Do About It

Eat fewer trans fats and more omega-3 fats. Limit baked goods, processed foods, and fried foods, and aim for 7 ounces (about 200 grams) of fatty fish per week. Avoid gluten if you have celiac disease or are sensitive to it. A trial of a low FODMAP diet is recommended if you suffer from bowel symptoms. Eat at least five servings of vegetables per day, including some leafy green veggies. Limit alcohol intake to 1 drink or less per day. Ask your doctor if you might benefit from supplemental thiamine, iron, magnesium, or vitamins C, D, E.
