|Getting a dose of the "quick step" may be authentic for period soldiers, but it's far from pleasant. This is especially true during the summer's heat. Drinking a lot of sugary soft drinks on an empty stomach is a sure fire way to get diarrhea. Avoid it! Drink water whenever possible. Another thing to avoid is eating a lot of really salty, greasy, fried foods when the temperature is rising. You can bet the farm on getting the "trots" in short order! It happened to me, so don't let it happen to you.
