Average transit time for food with a j-pouch = 6 to 8 hours. Breakfast at 7:00 am... comes out around 3 in the afternoon. Lunch at 12:00 pm, comes out around 6-8 pm. Dinner at 7:00 pm, comes out either middle of the night or when you get up in the morning.

The morning and early afternoon seem nice because you don't have anything moving through from the time you get up until about 3:00 pm.

That's always been my explanation.

I do tend to go more in the evening...I really don't go all day long. I go when I get up then not again until 3pm or so. Then it's about 3x from 5pm to bedtime....then once in the middle of the night. Thats my average day. When I had UC most of the trips to the bathroom were late afternoon/evening too.
