When should I drink water

When should I drink water? In the morning after you wake up and before breakfast drink 0.5 to 1 litre of water depending on your personal weight. If you weigh up to 75 kg - 0.5 ltr. and over 100 kg - 1 ltr.  All night the body gradually dehydrated and it needs to compensate its water reserves. The principle of drinking water is as follows:

·         15 – 30 minutes before meals
·         2 hours after a meal

Exceptions to the rule lead to diseases of the stomach and gastrointestinal tract (GIS). This happens because the water taken during meals (and all other drinks) dilutes gastric juices - pepsin and hydrochloric acid. Food accepted in the stomach instead being decomposed by stomach acids begins to rot (thus it is not processed). Stomach swells and the emptying of its contents into the duodenum is delayed leading to compression of the surrounding blood vessels (veins and arteries), heart, vagal nerve and diaphragm. Breathing is hindered which compensatory leads to increased heart rate of pathologically high values ranging from 100 to 130 beats per minute. Incompletely processed food passes onwards in the intestine and the metabolites (products of metabolism) start depositing on the walls of the small and large intestine in the form of toxic slag. This slag blocks the process of diffusion (the passage through the intestinal wall) of the necessary nutrients respectively they cannot reach the bloodstream.

To the above mentioned regime of drinking water one may become difficultly and slowly accustomed that is why during the transition period it is better to use a wristwatch with a countdown timer (after meals - set to 2:00) and a stopwatch (before meals) set to measure 15 to 30 minutes.

After all drinking water in that manner becomes a natural necessity and habit.When should I drink water?
