In brief: Clear liquids

Typical bowel prep instructions for a colonoscopy include a clear liquid diet the day prior to your colonoscopy or any oral liquid that you can see through.
This includes water, apple juice, sports drinks, tea, black coffee, soda, etc. The key is to drink plenty of fluids during your bowel prep for your colonoscopy.
