Water benefits your body in countless ways and is one of the best ways of keeping your body feeling, performing and looking well - if you drink the recommended 2.5 litres a day you'll feel focused, energetic , your skin will look supple and your eyes will sparkle . If a dehydrated body receives an extra 600ml /1 pint of water, it will repay you by giving you an extra 20 per cent of energy! When drinking water with a meal, it will help you to digest food more efficiently and assist the bowel in getting rid of waste products.

i orginally thought that it's best not to drink anything within 1/2 hour before a meal and 2 hours after a meal. i don't think that's true anymore... i think drinking WITH a meal is not good... but shortly before and shortly after is not bad.

from http://www.mercola.com/nutritionplan/inter...yle_changes.htm

"Lesson 3: Don't drink too much water during your meals.

Don't drink fluids with your meals if possible, as this will dilute the gastric digestive contents and make it more difficult to digest. A few sips of water during the meal would be fine."

from http://www.mercola.com/1999/archive/chlori..._stillbirth.htm

"It is also wise to drink either before your meal or after, not during the meal."

i don't know...i trust dr. mercola.

I have definitely noticed a positive change in my digestion now that I don't guzzle water with my meals.
