When Not to Drink

© Tihis | Dreamstime.comMost people eat their meals too fast. They don’t chew their food sufficiently, so they end up drinking fluid to wash it down. But when you have a beverage with food, your digestive enzymes are diluted, your meal doesn’t break down completely, and you end up storing the food as fat.*  You should drink 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after the eating, but not during a meal.

Let’s reduce the amount of water or other beverages during your meals today. If you can’t cut out a beverage completely, try sipping it instead of drinking fully. 

Express your love today!
