Do You Drink Water While Eating?

I'm not used to drinking water while eating.

I drink before and/or after meals.

Any implication(s)?

its helpful to drink water after the food is completely digested, this helps the digested food to be circulated very easily throughout yor body, I have been doing that for a while now and I can see the result. it takes about 2-3 hrs for food to digest. the best practice is to chew your food, before swallowing it, when you do this, the food mixes with some enzymes in your saliva which helps digestion.

I will continue later, got to sleep now,

I don't know about others but I drink water sometimes while eating. . .

It's just about quenching my thirst.

why not . .though it wasnt part of me, until the day i learnt my lessons, swallowed a very hot eba that stuck in my throat, it burned like hell and there was no water close by, before i got to the fridge in the kitchen, my throat saw hell . .since then. . .i learnt to keep water close by just incase of a eating mishap.

Its not medically right to drink while eating, I learnt u should drink water like 3 mins after meal to aid digestion

Some peeps might take a wrap of eba and the next fing is they r taking glasses of water to go with it

The nutrients of the meal is lost b4 completion

well, according to health practitioners,

a glass of water is required while eating

about 30 mins to an hour, then lots of fluid (preferably water) should be consumed

also, lots of water between meals is recommended.

well, i tried to adapt to this in uni, i did.

with regards to the glass of water during eating, i do dat well

the problem is drinking water between meals

time just seems to fly by

im making it a conscious effort to drink at least 6 glasses a day, for my own sake

Why do you always allow these oyinbo to fool you peoe follow them without reasoning. The whites tend not to drink while eating or consume less water cos of their weather which aid water retention in the body, so excess water while eating is detriment to their digestion. But common we loose lot of water in this our weather now, so drink lil water while eating too,

Well it depends. The best water to drink while eating is alkaline ionised water. It parley with food as the internal environment of the body encourages alkalinity.Mail me on princeviceb@yahoo.com to get more information on this.

I love water more than the food itself, so if i drink during meals i might end up not finishing the food.

basically i drink after eating.

Healthy wise & for easy digestion, its best to drink water 30 minutes before meal or 30 minutes after meal, Its now a habit for me, and helps in digestion process & bloating of tummy,

please, you guys are really funny. As for me,I find it very difficult to stay without water while eating. Psychologically, I feel the food is hanging when I fail to take water while eating.

the argument is that drinking water whiles eating dilutes the HCL in your stomach and leaves you more susceptible to harmful pathogens in the food. that's why it's better to drink juices, or even alcohol, anything that is also acidic.

personally i dont like to drink anything at all while i'm eating. if i'm in public i take little little sips but no actually drink.

Literally means "eat stones without drinking water" Jocular reference to Igbos from their observed tendency of eating very hard garri/eba without taking water during meal.

Before, During, after

I learnt its better to drink like 30 mins afer meal but i dont borther myslf to do that.

The only time i can restrict myslf to drinking after food is if the food is much and i want to force myslf to finish it, then water has to wait.
