    Water is good for your body so drinking some in the morning is a good idea. I would suggest anything that's a struggle is not entirely beneficial though and I would struggle to drink a litre of water first thing in the morning. I drink a pint when I get up just to kick start my water intake but just do what feels good for you. Everyone is different.

    Have you ever tried this and found it beneficial? I have started it yesterday and this morning and it clears you out completely. Apparently it also boosts metabolism by 24%.

    Nope.
    I drink about 8-12 oz glass of water with breakfast and other meals and then whenever I am thirsty. Not constipated.

    You don't have to do strange things to lose weight. Just eat fewer calories or burn more calories.

    I love my SodaStream. I bought some extracts from OliveNation.com to flavor them. I have lime, grapefruit, and cranberry (already had lemon and orange extract in my spice cupboard). Only takes 1/4-1/2 tsp. per liter.

    Drinking water doesn't boost your metabolism.
    However if it's iced water, you'll burn calories warming it up to 98 deg.

    Drinking water stand alone doesn't do much for hunger either since it leaves the stomach too quickly. The trick is to first blend your meal with water, only then will it stay in your stomach long enough to help signal your brain you are full.

    If you drink very cold water your body has to work harder (ie slight calorie burn) to warm it to body temp before it can digest it so maybe that's a way it can 'boost your metabolism'.

    These were two sources that i read about boosting metabolism. I am not entirely sure if accurate lol. Also it clears both #1 and #2 completely you will have to go but not in a bad way like the runs or something. It will just remove excess sludge in the colon. Sorry if thats TMI.

    There is no excess sludge in your colon. Otherwise you would be in the hospital.

    Then why do we have to do a colon cleanse before a colonoscopy?

    I believe that's more of a fast and flush than what is commonly sold as a "cleanse".

    And it's mostly because the doctor doesn't want to get hit in the face during the procedure.

    My doc referred to it as a colon cleanse. But my point was if there wasn't stuff in there, we wouldn't need such a drastic cleanse.

    Yes, there's stuff in there, because you ate yesterday... and the doctor doesn't want it in his eye.

    Actually, no. Liquids only before the cleanse, and trust me, more comes out than usual even after the fast. And I'm very regular.

    We have a colonoscopy cleanse so the Dr. can actually see the wall of the colon without bits of food particles getting
    in the way of a potential problem. If you don't do the cleanse right, you get rescheduled and sent home to do it again.

    There is a difference between the normal fecal matter which usually passes through the system within 24 hours and "excess sludge" which proponents of cleanses say is there, and has been there for weeks.

    A pre-colonoscopy cleanse gets rid of the normal fecal matter. There is no " sludge" unless a person has been constipated. It is constantly there because the food you eat that takes about 24 hours (more or less depending on the person) to get digested, the nutrients removed, and the waste processed for elimination. The liquid that leaves your body the night before is the liquid food you ate (typically last 2 days before the test) and some additional water drawn from your tissues.

    If you really had a bunch of sludge, you would lose much more than the average 3-4 lb during a pre-colonoscopy cleanse. That is usually half food waste and half fluids drawn from tissues. 1-2 lb of undigested food and waste from digested food is not much at all.

    It actually takes longer than 24 hrs,
    http://www.mayoclinic.org/digestive-system/expert-answers/faq-20058340
    which is why there is indeed 'stuff' (fecal matter, sludge, whatever you want to call it) always in your colon. I'm not suggesting we need to remove this, or that simply drinking water in the morning will remove it. I'm just saying it's there.
