I'm just curious if anyone can tell me this...

Does drinking a lot more than you eat cause loose stools or Diarrhea?

Not like alcohol, I Mean just drinking a lot of things like soda and hawain punch and v8 fusion. Like large amounts of it. I usually drink 4-6 cans of soda(coke zero or some other diet soda) a day, a couple of glasses of v8 and punch drinks a day as well. THat's all together..and I eat irregularly. LIke I don't eat three times a day at set times... sometimes i eat once or twice a day at irregular times like late morning and then late night.

Would this cause loose stools or Diarrhea? I would think so since there's more liquid in my system than food, there's an imbalance. I feel fine otherwise so I doubt it's actually a sickness, but I have Diarrhea or loose stools a lot and I'm curious if anyone else thinks this causes it.
