    What do you think?

    My personal opinion drink water at least 30 minutes before eating. Otherwise the food is not going to digest well.

    Remember!!! You better eat 5-6 time per day small portions instead of trying to figure it out whether it is good or bad to drink water because you fill less hungry.

    Drinking at least 2 liters of water per a day is good for health...For weight loss, i would recommend some best loose leaf teas like green tea, oolong tea etc.

    Drinking water before meal helps to digest. Those people are health conscious always prefer taking water before meal.

    I've heard that if you drink water right before a meal you dilute the enzymes that are required for digestion. Makes sense I think...

    Drinking water before a meal is a good way to digest, lose weight and be healthy.

    I am wondering as I read replies where people are getting their information because clearly there is no agreement. Who are the experts on this question? I wonder how many of us just accept answers we get on the Internet without wondering, how do they know this? Until you can validate your answer with some authority, I'd say Experiment and see what works for you. For me, I need a certain amount of water while I'm awake because I can see dehydration in my skin and see the effects on my bowels. If I drink water before meals, it means that for awhile my stomach isn't empty enough to eat what I'd eat without drinking water. Drinking water while eating has the same effect. Experiment. Be curious!

    Drinking water discussion of when and how to drink is also important to discuss what to Drink.
    the Water purifier does not clean the water to the level of healthy.

    The installation of a Water Softeners will remedy your hard water problems. You will immediately see and feel the difference a softener makes in the quality of your water and the quality of your life. With conditioned water, you and your family will look and feel better with glowing complexions and soft, shining hair. Your laundry will look better and fabrics will last longer. Housework becomes much less of a chore.

    I agree that drinking lots of water is always a good idea, I don't think it's good for getting that feeling of being full. After all, it's just water which your body assimilates pretty fast so that feeling of satiety goes away pretty quick. I always found that filling up on tons of veggies during a meal kept me feeling full for long. And you can't really gain weight by eating broccoli, right?

    I like drinking a glass of very cold water beforehand, it really does help fill me up a bit. I do not feel as though I am bloated and do not want to eat, but I start to notice that a possible second helping of whatever I am eating just does not sound as appealing.

    Hi...!
    In some condition water has more good effect in our health,like before and after taking bath,early in the morning and before having meal . We should also avoid from drinking water after having meal because its have bad effect on our health.

    The plan of drnking water for losing weight is like this: drink water 20 MIN before food (yes it will make you feel not so hungry;-))). the second step is not to drink 2 hours after food! ( digestion process will become slow)

    I agree with John. Try to not drink before or even during a meal.

    You should not drink water before half n hour of meal. If you drink water before all your stomach fluid which helps in digestion will flow out of your body and digestion process will become slow. So its better not to drink water before meal. Even while having food you should drink very less water.
    But once you done with your meal you can drink water.
