Full Fluid Diets:

A patient doing well on a clear fluid diet may move to a full fluid diet. Typical full fluid diets provide around 1,100 to 1,300 kilocalories a day. If lactose intolerance is not a problem, a full fluid diet is a great improvement over a clear fluid diet. However, most full fluid diets do not have enough energy or protein for patients recovering from an illness or operation.

The purpose of restricting solids in a diet is to eliminate indigestible matter. Patients with small-bowel Crohn's disease with partial obstruction or an acute flare-up usually find this kind of diet helpful in recovery. However, restricting solids in any diet results in an inadequate intake of energy and some nutrients.
