Reasons why you should not drink water while eating


One of the most common sights you see on a daily basis is drinking water in between meals. While some people think it is necessary to have a glass of water with your meals, this habit could be highly damaging to your health.

 Here are six reasons why you should stop drinking water along with your meals.



Makes digestion difficult


Your stomach contains digestive acids that help in the digestion and breakdown of food. Apart from this, the acids are also responsible for killing any infectious agents that might be ingested along with food. These digestive enzymes are essential for our overall well-being as they also allow the stomach to contract and pulverize the food we eat. 



Makes you add weight


Drinking water with your meals is the fact that you do tend to put on weight. There is a surge in insulin levels and the food is broken down to make fat which is stored. Apart from that, it is believed that a weak digestive system is one of the leading reasons for obesity.




Reduces amount of saliva


Your saliva is the first step to digestion. Not only does it contain enzymes that help break down food, but it also helps stimulate the stomach to release digestive enzymes and ready itself for the process of digestion. When you drink water during your meals, your saliva gets diluted. This not only sends weaker signals to the stomach but also stops the breakdown of food in your mouth.




Increases the amount of insulin in your body


Drinking water while you are eating can also lead to an increase in your insulin levels. This is because when your body is not able to digest foods well enough it tends to convert the glucose filled part of that food into fat and stores it. This process then requires a surge of insulin in the body increasing your overall blood sugar levels.

*hmm.. While some scholars say it's good to drink water while eating because it helps in quick digestion of food.. Which one do you believe?

Heavy Defection hits APC

Barring any change, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) may be hit by mass defection, in the next few months.

Daily Sun gathered that some APC governors, senators and members of the House of Representatives are seriously dissatisfied with events in the ruling party.

Some of them are said to have cut a deal with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), with a view to joining the opposition political party.

This is coming at a time the PDP has declared that its platform was open to all Nigerians to actualise their dreams of contesting elections.

But reacting, National Publicity of the APC, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, told Daily Sun that the party won’t want to react to such information when no name of any governor or chieftain was mentioned.

However, competent sources among those who attended the PDP’s recent National Working Committee (NWC) meeting in Asaba, Delta State capital, revealed that top APC members, who will defect may join the PDP latest by May.
