Yes, staying hydrated is more important than eating. The body can go much longer without food than it can without water. Dehydration happens fast and when we have to fast before surgery, we start out slightly dehydrated.
If you read though some of the threads you will see we highly recommend getting plenty of fluids. If you think you are getting enough, double it.
