Answer

Diet does not have an important role in treating CBP. Some physicians have advocated the avoidance of spicy foods, caffeine-containing products, tobacco and alcohol; however, no evidence has indicated any CBP-associated benefit from this. 

Activity changes do not have a prominent role in the treatment of CBP. However, the authors often advise patients to avoid bicycling or other activities that may put pressure on the perineal region. [37]
