The best is that patient is asked to go on a juice and a liquid diet for about a week. This prevents the chances of dehydration and at the same time, provides the body with foods that are easy to digest, but are still very high in nutrition. Fresh vegetable juices (beet root, carrot and spinach), fruit juices (orange, pear, grapes and lemons) and vegetable broth are perfect for consumption at this time. The liquid diet may also be extended, till the acute symptoms of jaundice subside.

After the juice diet, a patient may be asked to go on an all-fruit diet for about 3 to 5 days. Hence, the three or four meals consumed per day, should consist of fresh fruits, like apples, pineapples, grapes, pears and oranges.
Once the fruit diet is complete, a diet that contains normal foods cooked with minimal oils and spices should be incorporated. 
caffeine, whole dairy products, sweets and red meats,should be strictly avoided by a jaundice patient, till the condition is completely cured.

Take complete rest and drink plenty of water.
