I heard on television that if you drink a beverage while you are having a meal that you block the digestive process. I however can't seem to eat a meal without having some sort of beverage! Do you always have a beverage with a meal or not?

If I don't drink while I eat, I will have bad heartburn.

I have also heard that anytime, but i take water just after eating my meal. I don't know how that can block the things to be digested. i have heard they wash out the chemicals requred to digest the food.But i still takle water after eating.

No that makes sense....that it could wash out the emzines required for digestion....I don't know. I still like to drink something with my meal!

I always have a drink when I eat a meal. I don't see how it could block the digestive process, you would think that it could help. But I don't know maybe I am wrong.

That's an interesting fact but have never of a drink blocking the digestive process. I always have something to drink with my meals. In the morning my favorite drink is coffee, for lunch it's generally soda and dinner is either lemonade or ice tea. I always have a bottle of water in my computer room when at home in the evening.

what i know is that when you drink water or any kind of beverage while you are eating, you get full easily and won't be able to finish your meal. the water or the beverage satiate us even if we haven't finished our meal. i don't have any idea on how it would block the digestive process. ^__^;;

I am constantly drinking something...mostly water. I always drink something with my dinner also. I rarely drink anything but water or juice though. What do you like to drink with your meals? Have a great day.

I actually drink alot of water during the day and have soda at night. I do love water though! The bonus for me is that my tap water is yummy....very good tasting so I drink lots of it!
