It's because of something called Dumping Syndrome. When you drink while eating the fluids will push the food through your system faster than they can digest and it can cause pain and digestive distress. Chewing your food thoroughly and avoiding fluids during and 30 minutes after eating can mitigate the potential problems of Dumping Syndrome. 438 days ago
I had gastric sleeve surgery in November 2016, they always told us to wait at least 30 minutes- preferably longer- but I just can't. I just take sips while I'm eating, I just can't break the habit of eating & drinking at the same time 473 days ago
