Reply to "Time Spent In Bathroom / Difficulty Emptying Pouch"

Diet is so extremely important for a pouch to function at its best. I have had my pouch for 5 years now and through alot of trial and error I have it working well 95% of the time. I find for myself that the more vegetables i eat the better.  I eat alot of  soft steamed broccoli, cauliflower,  and brussel sprouts.   I ususlly have 2-3 salads a week.  I make green smoothies with baby spinach, ginger, cucumber, plain greek yogurt, peaches with a touch of honey and water.  The smoothies get everything flowing easily.   I also find that a low carb low sugar diet is the best for me.  If i eat too much proccessed food it makes empting very difficult.  I try to drink 1-2 glasses if water with each meal.  My favorite breakfast is soft cooked oatmeal with blueberries that i heat up in the microwave for a couple of minutes and a nice dollop of real whip cream.   Again i would like to stress how important your diet is.   I hope this helps.
