I underwent a total colectomy five years ago and my surgeon told me to eat pretty much what I wanted.  You will need to drink more (~2 litres of water per day) and you may find your motions very runny.  I increased my fibre intake which made my motions more "muddy/sludgy".  You might like to have a look at a posting I placed on Medhelp in response to another patient on:-
