3 or 4 times isn't bad

I do the opposite of Amanda Panda because I work outside and cannot use a bathroom often I drink more in afternoons and evening, especially after dinner. So I pee a lot at night. It is worth it.
About liquid amounts: actually doctors recommend -for normal people- to drink in ounces half of what you weigh in pounds. If you weigh 130 then that is 8 glasses minimum- more for hot weather or exercise- and definitely more for IBSers. It really does depend on your size! My husband being twice as big as me means he should drink and eat so much more. I would never need as much water as him. So liquid intake is all relative.

--------------------
IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
