View Full Version : when to drink water

ok, so i know it's best to wait 30 min after drinking water before eating and not good to drink water while eating (messes with digestive juices).
how long should i wait after finishing eating before drinking? i mean, i understand i can do whatever i want, but i just don't want to mess with my digestion, so do you think it's ok to drink right after eating or should you wait?

if its a smoothe i wait less time it just depends i guess.

I read somewhere recently that that rule does not apply to raw food eaters because the digestive juices needed are different and do not suffer as a result of being diluted. If anyone knows otherwise please enlighten me.

It DOES ALSO matter for raw food eaters. I read that it takes fruit approx 2 hours to digest (an extra hour for bananas); therfore, we should wait about 2 hours before drinking water. If you are eating a salad, those also digest in about 3 hours... but ultimately, listen to your body. It will let you know when everything is emptied out of the stomach.

wow, that's one that I've never heard. Any links or something to back it up? I can't imagine being able to drink water while eating.
