Should I take water while having food?I generally take water at the time of having my meal. A sense of satisfaction comes while doing so. However, my wife always asks me not to do so. But, as usual, I don't pay heed to her advice.
Today I have come across an article on health. It states that if water is taken while having food, the food is not chewed properly and it reaches the intestine very quickly. As a result, the gastric juice doesn't properly secrete, which causes various digestive problems. The article further states that taking water just before, during and immediately after the meal causes diabetes and other chronic digestive ailments.
I showed the report to one of my colleagues. He trashes the report and advocates having water after the meal. Now, I am in a dilemma.
Should we take water before, during and immediately after the meal? Members may kindly give their opinion.
