So I try and drink my water inbetween meals. Soup can be a problem for me as well as shakes - all because my body sees them as food and I don't have as much of a colon to absorb out the liquid.

I hate carbonated stuff so that's not really a factor for me.
NHMike wrote:For me, fluids generate gas which helps to push things out. But I don't necessarily know that it decreases clustering. I can drink fluids throughout the day and I still get clustering. Things just come out sooner than they would without as much liquid. Spritzer seems to increase the speed with which things come out as that generates even more gas. Also, coffee with cream speeds things up.
One aspect for me is that I lost the ability to sense thirst after the reversal so I keep a Notes table to keep track of fluids with a target of 64 ounces per day. I usually go way over that. I use the same table to track supplements and a few other things.

Very good point Mike,
I did over do it yesterday. I will be having some electrolyte replacement in some of my water today. I get going in class and talk and drink and talk and drink and forget how much I have had!
