    i hate the feeling of a dry mouth and could easily drink a cup of water for every couple of mouthful of food. I get full really quick which isn't really here or there but I was just wondering about digestion.

    I fit the pattern of hot damp in chinese medicine too.

    I am wondering if I should suck it up and not drink during dinner and for 30min after??

    I drink a cup of it 3 times a day, so before the 3 'main' meals. Have you tried coconut water?? It contains electrolytes so would perhaps get rid of the dry mouth? I just drink tap water, nothing colder than my body temp, only drink hot tea in winter!

    Most meals I do. Have started having a glass of sparkling water as it fills me up

    always have, mum and dad always had a couple of jugs of water on the table when i was growing up and eating makes me thirsty.
    i couldn't imagine not drinking during a meal. got to stay hydrated. staying hydrated helps flush impurities from your body. and my kinesiologist and chiro are very keen on drinking water, helps emotional healing and helps maintain adjustments.

    shine, i tried acv in water, just 1 teaspoon. it made me sick. no idea why, cos it's a godsend for my birds.

    I drink BEFORE I eat - I drink all day long. I always have a drink with me, even when I go out. I can't drink while I'm eating or soon afterwards though... or I spew or feel like I want to at least. This is all related to my new stomach though... before my surgery I would drink before, during and after.

    I find it really hard to not drink, and whenever I had a meal without a drink, I'd feel incredibly uncomfortable. I always found drink to help my food go down smoother and feel nicer in my tummy. Now I just can't do that, but I still have a few drops to wet my mouth after I've eaten...

    Subscribing as I'm reading a book which specifically says not to or to and I can't remember so I'm going to look it up and let you know.
