To drink or not to drink that is the question...

Old William S. ("To be or not to be...") got me thinking outside the box about drinking while eating. I have been doing so many things differently to make my insides work better by avoiding the foods that I can not tolerate and yet I still suffer bloating and discomfort at times...I wanted to scream when I really just needed to think about it more and ponder why my mother does not drink anything while eating...BINGO...googled it and read all about drinking for some people while eating is not a good idea...may be diluting the digestive enzymes and prolonging the process...I experimented the last two days and geesh...Mom knows best...at least best for her insides and probably best for my insides too...will keep at it and report back...so in the morning I have to take my thyroid med. with lots of water and wait an hour to eat...I am already in that habit so now I just do that all day, eat and NOT drink until a while after I have eaten...I slept great, felt better...at 56 I am still getting my act together, but isn't that true of us all? Or a lot of us...life is an ongoing journey of self discovery. HUGS

Funny that you should mention that. I have never been someone to drink with my meals. I guess now I know why.

Interesting - I kind of do that naturally already. I'm going to try and pay more attention and see if I notice a difference.
