Do you know why drinking while eating is bad for you?

You always hear us Dietitians say that is preferable not to drink while eating and it’s always better to drink 30 minutes before and 1 hour after eating.

This is because when you drink you are pushing food inside quickly and as a consequence you are not chewing well the food the way it should be chewed for proper digestion.
The other reason is because fluid dilutes the gastric juice making digestion slower and more difficult… With about 60% of the immune cells residing in the digestive tract, any imbalance in this part of your body can put your overall health out of balance because of compromised immune system. Slow digestion can lead to nutrient deficiency, and if it’s chronic it can cause constipation, gas, bloating and more… By the way fast food is a main reason for slow/bad digestion.

But guys, if you are too thirsty you are allowed to have 100ml of liquid while eating, I won’t be that strict with you after all! ;) Just make sure you chew well your food!
