quick moving fluids, food?

carnation instant breakfast, the powder mix provides essential vitamins, minerals. Only bother is, it goes right through me. If I want a quick liquid result, this does it for me. What about you? Do u have something you eat or drink that makes you "go" right away, or perhaps binds you up? Do tell.

Still trying to bind.  Sugars are the enemy.  They supercharge processing and, of course, in our modern world its in everything.

 

Bananas work to a small extent but that might be a function of only having 6 feet of bowel left.

Hey Warrior,  I drink the Kirkland complete nutrition shakes.  They do go thru me at a quick pace but are a good alternative to eating anything before I go to meetings.  Cashews, peanut butter and rice are the binding foods for me.  Stay well.  Penguins7

Warrior-Since my reversal 6 months ago, stool is very loose. I find that marshmallows and applesauce work best for firming things up.

Hadn't occurred to me that such a thing exists!  I'm game if I can find them!

 

Thanks for the idea!

they do exist and ostomates swear by them. Now I eat them raw but put over a campfire, orgasmic. 😊
