No Drinking With Meals After Weight Loss Surgery

Why no water with meals after weight loss surgery?

Having a drink of water during a meal, is another luxury I must avoid. ┬áMy understanding is two fold, one is food can settle in your stomach, taking up space like a layer of thick sand that won’t immediately absorb fluid, thus the fluid has nowhere to go and you will throw it up.

Second reason not to drink fluids with meals is that it dilutes the food which hastens digestion creating room for more food diminishing the purpose surgery was performed, as illustrated in the video below.
