I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy on April 3rd. I misread

Resolved Question:

I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy on April 3rd. I misread the prep instructions and thought I was supposed to be on the White diet for 2 days before the procedure. Early this morning, I ate a banana and Luna bar. I'm assuming that the diet is to prepare for the elimination of the contents on my colon on the evening before the procedure. As of yesterday I've already begun to have some increased bowel movements due to anxiety over having this procedure. I don't believe what I ate this morning will be staying in my system very long. Will this mistake adversely affect this procedure?
