    My naturopath says its best not to drink anything with your meals as it actually interferes with the digestion process ( even water) apparently as a pp said drink water an hour before any meal ( she also said if you are thirsty during a meal, the meal is probably higher in salt or not that good for you, which is true when you think about it!)

    Yep my book confirms pretty much what EM said.

    Something to do with digestion and not absorbing all the goodness.

    I make sure I chew every mouthful properly to aide digestion. I take a lonnng time to eat, but I eat a lot so it's important I chew it all properly I guess! I have no idea about the water...I tend to drink liquid with meals, but only because I get thirsty eating.

    I've also heard it's better on the digestive system to eat several small meals a day as opposed to three large ones.

    Hmmm, what to believe? Millions of Chinese drink green tea or even just hot water as they claim it aids digestion.

    I thought drinking tea or any beverage with tannins in it while eating stops your body absorbing the iron in your food ? Or that's what I read somewhere on why it's not good to drink wine with your meals!

    Yep, this is true. Unless you drink a low tannin tea, like rooibos.
