This is precisely why I have gone to taking mine at bedtime. It was just too stressful trying to figure out what I could eat and drink and when I could eat and drink it. Even if that means that I end up only ever taking one dose a day, I am going to have to live with that. I am just not the type of person who goes 4 hours without eating anything. I am a grazer and I just do better that way. I love my fruit and my juices and if I take my Miracle-Mineral-Supplement at bedtime, I don't have to worry about eating or drinking the wrong thing after it.
