Will drinking a lot of fluids influence your output?

Yes it does in mine. If I drink a lot then the output is more watery as ileum doesn't remove all the fluid like the colon does. If don't drink enough then output is much thicker, like if I get dehydrated. Also depends what I drink, for some reason tomato juice goes shooting right through me in about 20 minutes, quite impressive really!

     Most definitely.  When I drink a lot of fluids, I have quite a bit of liquid output.  If I don't drink enough, which is usually what happens with me, the output if very thick.

Without a doubt! When I drink coffee, its like almost instantaneous and its complete water, for me at least. Drinking lots of fluids = lots of output.

For me it also made a difference if I drank a lot at once vs small amounts all day long. If I guzzled a large amount of anything it would go right through me but if I sipped it would absorb more.

Also - if you try a drink your fluids before or after meals it helps with absorption. And only having a small amount of fluids with meals (which runs contrary to what a lot of people say about drinking lots to avoid blockages).
