Surprising Reasons You Should Not Drink Water While Eating

One of the most common sights you see on a daily basis is drinking water in between meals. While some people think it is necessary to have a glass of water with your meals, this habit could be highly damaging to your health.




 Here are six reasons why you should stop drinking water along with your meals.



Makes digestion difficult


Your stomach contains digestive acids that help in the digestion and breakdown of food. Apart from this, the acids are also responsible for killing any infectious agents that might be ingested along with food. These digestive enzymes are essential for our overall well-being as they also allow the stomach to contract and pulverize the food we eat. 



Makes you add weight


Drinking water with your meals is the fact that you do tend to put on weight. There is a surge in insulin levels and the food is broken down to make fat which is stored. Apart from that, it is believed that a weak digestive system is one of the leading reasons for obesity.




Reduces amount of saliva


Your saliva is the first step to digestion. Not only does it contain enzymes that help break down food, but it also helps stimulate the stomach to release digestive enzymes and ready itself for the process of digestion. When you drink water during your meals, your saliva gets diluted. This not only sends weaker signals to the stomach but also stops the breakdown of food in your mouth.




Increases the amount of insulin in your body


Drinking water while you are eating can also lead to an increase in your insulin levels. This is because when your body is not able to digest foods well enough it tends to convert the glucose filled part of that food into fat and stores it. This process then requires a surge of insulin in the body increasing your overall blood sugar levels.

You people are looking for who will choke abi. There's no way I can eat without drinking water

You have told us when not to buy didn't tell us when to. Is it immediately after eating, few minutes after eating, etc. What I believe is this, if you are not careful with this "don't drink water while eating" thing, you will end up having a HARD time in the toilet because your poo will be shy and refuse to come out. You will just sit there for hours singing and cracking jokes to yourself.

You should have water close to you incase you choke.

Very true but in case of choking drink water.

I drink water 15-30mins after eating or before eating. The before eating own is difficult for me so I do afyrr eating.

Learnt it from my mum and I'm a pro now.

The Lifted said...

I sip water about 3 times btw chewing & swallowing b4 finally drinking the rest after the meal. Its something i found myself doing right from childhood,I really cannot finish a meal with sips/gulps of water in btw else i choke (mostly if its something like eba/akpun,yam,or any hard food,never had any digestion issue, I'm not overweight nor underweight,I'm fit. For each meal I can finish this 75cl quantity of water...So this claim up here isn't true for my body system.

The funniest thing is in Islam, Prophet Muhammed(SAW) adviced to finish eating before drinking water.

Eka joy said...

Ogun mashu mato tawon dokita ndasile nipa imo iwadi yi ti poju. Gone are does days where people eat whaever they see without much medical advice, they still leave healthier and older than now adays. May God help us all.

Shyla said...

I can't drink water when I am eating. If I try it, which means I will not be able to continue eating again. I prefer drinking after eating not because of the health implication sha but a habit, just like eating my meat after I finish the food.

DLioness said...

Hmm! I think this is for people who have made it a constant habit to eat and drink at the same time. Trust there are people like that

But that does not mean you can't drink when the need arises yea.

Again
Mmm, if it makes one fat, hehehe then lemme come and join them o. I dey find fat.
Lolz that kind thing
