In short.

In detail we will talk about

According to some beliefs, drinking water during meals would be a bad habit that brings negative effects on our digestion and also on nutrient absorption.

The goal of those who support this idea, would be to aid digestion and thus also have benefits for faster weight loss.

The simple answer to this question is: it depends, because it mainly depends on the amount of water you drink during the meal.

Drinking the right amount is in fact recommended, because it helps to improve the consistency of food, which otherwise, especially if dry, would have more difficulty traveling through the digestive tract, however, drinking too much water could instead be harmful, because it would lead to diluting too much of the gastric juices present in our digestive tract, thus slowing down digestion and consequently increasing its time.

On the other hand, as for the slimming effect of this habit, the rationale that can be given is that drinking before meals rather than during them could increase the sense of satiety thus helping to consume less food.

In conclusion, therefore, it is recommended to consume a moderate amount of water during meals, but still remember to consume 1.5 to 2 liters of water during the day, because as is well known, water is a key component of our body that helps us regulate body temperature, lubricate joints and eliminate waste substances through sweating and fluids.
