Basically, I've seen a lot of posts where people talk about IBS or stomach/gut/health problems but never mention their water or hydrational fluid intake per day. Delving further into nutritionists' guidance, they'll commonly say you should drink 2-3L of water/hydrational fluid per day, but I'm interested to see what other people on here drink and whether they find increasing or decreasing this amount makes a difference to their health/bowel movements etc. (Note, when I say hyrdrational fluids, I mean stuff that isn't water, but isn't coke or coffee. Examples of this would be fruit juice, herbal teas, squash etc.)
As a starting point, about a year ago I was drinking about 1.2L of hydrational fluid a day, but about 2-3 months ago, I was advised to start taking supplements for CFS by a nutritionist, so I thought it'd be a good idea to up my fluid intake as well. Since then I've been drinking about 1.9L per day and have found that I generally feel a bit more alert/have less brain fog.
