    Default Drinking With Meals

    Hi everyone

    A quick question could anyone please advise how long to leave before having a drink after a meal.

    I know that you shouldnt drink during the meal but just was not sure how long to leave afterwards.

    Oh I do mean water not alcohol LOL

    I drink when I feel thirsty. If I feel thirsty after the meal I have water straight away, if not I wait until I feel thirsty. Really don't worry too much about this, nothing terrible will happen if you drink while you eat or straight after you eat once in a while, it just aids digestion not to. If you're thirsty you should drink, don't be counting down until you are "allowed" to drink! I guess what I'm saying is just listen to your body.

    I got so flippin conscious of not drinking with a meal that I kept forgetting to drink and consequently ended up dehydrated! I now just drink when I am thirsty too!

    I also drink alot, all through the day, coffee and sparkling water. I drink before, during and after, because I want to; also having dry mouth helps my meals go down/ It doesn't affect my weight, and never has done. I think its pesonal choice really. I could never contemplate being dehydrated.
