Besides avoiding rice from my daily meal, I have another secret of maintaining my body weight.
I don’t drink right after taking meals.
Yes, it’s right. Through practice, I’ve gained a mechanism in my eating habit not to ask for immediate water need right after eating and during eating.
The reason is simple. We got this kind of gastric acid in our stomach with specific concentration to digest everything that has gone through the esophagus. If we change the concentration by mean of diluting the acid by drinking right after eating, how would the digestion be properly done?
In short, to let the stomach does its function properly, don’t eat and drink on the spot.
For guys, this is a good tip to avoid from getting distended stomach (read: buncit). Hehe... Ya, I mean, seriously!
In my case, it’s very common if you do not see me with any glass of drink when having my meal. It’s either I postpone drinking by taking away a drink, or I didn’t order for any drink. I will drink at least 30 minutes after I finish eating.
Guys, this simple tip would be very useful for our health and body and you can start from today. Practice makes perfect, isn’t it? And on my behalf, I practice what I preach.
