I fell for this one to; that drinking water with a meal washed away nutrients. According to this article that's not the case.

Water with Meals (http://my.webmd.com/living_better_content/dnn/article/1671.51468)

If anyone can find an article that says different please post. Until then....

pass the water jug please.

That was a myth? Had never even heard of it.

Why would you want to drink water while eating? It would just fill you up and make it harder for you to finish your chcken and rice!

Maybe a few sips, to wash the food down.

maybe tripleP has something there...

i think i'll try taking my fiber tonight without h2o
and then, drink my flax oil solo
hell - i'll just start guzzling all my powdered supplements like the candy that comes in straws

no more water for me!

(dude - maybe its the voices in ur head again ;) )

lol, TripleP, I guess I do see that as true because I tend to keep my drink until after I finish eating.

Never heard of that myth. And now that I heard it, I don't agree with it at all =P.

no offense raven blade, but thats a pretty ridiculous myth, i mean i never heard of it, it doesn't even make any sense regardless of what logic you use. Most myth's actually make sense if you use incorrect logic but that one doesn.t

Wait a minute, I read on flex that water indeed washed away the nutrients, and Flex never lies!!! :rolleyes: mmm..no wonder their "Ultimate Ronnie Coleman's 20 sets arm blaster routine" didnt work..

So is the myth about the scuba diver corpse found in a tree where a forest fire had been put out years before by water bombers. Neither of them are my myths. Doesn't mean they aren't myths. And to tell the truth I don't think the water with meals one is all that unbelievable.

:thumbup: <== just imagine he has another digit held up

I killed that guy and stashed him in the tree. I cant believe they found him!

Anyways I usually eat while sipping a diet coke. It makes everything taste better. Everything. I never, however, drink a few glasses of water with a meal(maybe a 32oz diet coke with my 12 tacos from the Bell), it just wastes good foodin' space.
