This would be something I would be interested in experimenting with.
I read something recently that said to aid digestion you should drink water before you eat. I don't usually drink much while eating as I shovel like a field hand, but I do drink as I slow down and immediately afterward.
The same article about water consumption said the key times to drink water are a full cup right when you wake up to replenish tissues and help with your blood flow or something like that. Then 30 min before eating and two full cups before going to bed as your sleeping time is when your body fluids are rushing around doing their work.
It sounded kind o hookey, so I just filed it away, but now I'm wondering if there's some truth to stuff like that.
I'll definitly try the no drinking during or for an hour after. That should be easy for me. And I intend to drink a big glass before befor eating too as I've read that a number of plsaces as a good way to cut down on calories as you feel fuller going in to the meal.
