Rapper Bow Wow sticks to a strict high fibre diet to prevent a relapse of the stomach illness which hospitalised him back in 2007.
The star was treated for an infected appendix after doctors discovered his white blood cells were abnormally high, during a check up over a bad cut.
Although Bow Wow is now fully recovered, he reveals he has battled gastrointestinal problems his whole life - prompting him to turn to healthier food.
He tells Hip Hop Weekly, "I've always had bad stomach problems. That's why I went to the hospital a year and a half ago when me and Chris Brown were on tour. Now me and all my team, we're starting to work out more and stuff like that.
"I had to go on a special diet. Bananas, rice, apples and toast. It's crazy but so far so good."
