In normal sized people, not fatties like me, our fist is the same size as our stomach! Therefore if we eat a fist size serving of food, we should not get fat! However over time and overeating, the stomach will grow larger and thus take more food to fill. Guess a glass or two of water before eating is not a bad idea!

Most certainly not...but my dad does not allow. He thinks the juices would not be able to do perfect job and I would get less out of what I eat. So true. Here is a better idea. Drink water, eat some pickle and rice, so that juices are secreted once more, and then have that meal. Life is great with pickle and rice.

Well, yesterday I was reading that a glass of water before eating is a bad idea, because it dilutes the stomach gastric juice and it takes more time to digest food. This way you gain weight.

@Paradon I remember that I was still a kid and my doctor already told my Mom not to drink before eating and to drink very little during the meals. I noticed that I have a bad digestion if I drink too much water while I eat.

We drink water with a zip of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar before a meal . . . supposedly it prepares the digestive system before eating. I have very small hands . . . and I eat like a pig .
