Carbonated as there are usually a water break near enough to where I live that I don't have time or the space to filter the water through 4 filters for me to feel safe enough to drink and can't afford to buy bottled water.

I drink a large bowl of coffee when I get up and 2 or 3 cups of tea for breakfast, but I drink at least 8 cups of water a day, so I guess I should consider myself mostly a water drinker!

I grocery shop every few days here lately. My money is limited and I have to work with what I have which means extra trips to the store to get things I missed. My goal is to go once a week. This just isn't happening lately.

Big order is about every 1.5 weeks; little stuff (milk, bread) more often as we run out.

grocery shopping a few times a week. Usually 2. Need to get milk and produce that often. Otherwise it would be monthly.

Answer from Spark to last question:

ē Answer: 50 hours
It takes an average of 50 hours for food to move through the digestive system. Men digest food more quickly than women and children digest food more quickly than adults.

transit time depends a lot on motility and the food eaten. There are times when a person is constipated and transit time is much slower. When a good amount of vegetable fiber is eaten and plenty of water, things move faster.

10 hours would be an average time for most people.

Did you know you excrete the equivalent of 12 elephants in your lifetime?

I'd say 50 hours, all the way through. Food usually passes the stomach and small intestine pretty quickly, but I know it can sit for quite long in the large intestine/colon.
