HOW to drink water is more important than you think
It is important to drink enough water every day if you want to stay young, healthy, look good and be full of energy.
In addition to the quality and quantity of the water you drink, how you drink the water is vital to you. So how do you drink water?
We learn the ways we eat and drink water as children. We have been accustomed to drinking water since we were children. There is also a saying among the people that “water is good if you have something to drink after it”. And since almost all people drink water right after eating, we don’t think there could be anything wrong with that. You probably do the same.
Drinking water immediately after eating is a bad habit, which creates many problems that you do not even suspect. It’s not your fault you do this, we were all taught the same in childhood, and we all pull the strings. There’s no point in blaming yourself. But it is in your power to change this habit and enjoy more energy and a leaner body. The solution is simple, you can find it below.
What happens when you drink water immediately after eating
Imagine that you have a house that you heat with a wood stove or a fireplace. It’s cold and damp outside, and it’s the same in your house – before you light a fire. Once you have lit the fire and it burns hard, the house is warm and the excess moisture disappears. You feel good in your well-heated room. If the air is too dry, you can put a pot of water near the fireplace.
But what if as soon as you light a fire in the fireplace, you throw a bucket of water over the fire? The fire will be extinguished or burnt just smoldering, and the room will remain cold and damp. After a while, you light the fire again to warm yourself, then immediately throw a bucket of water over it. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? You would never do that at home.
And yet, in a way, you do this several times a day, inside your body, when you drink water immediately after eating.
In traditional European, Indian and Chinese medicine, there is the term “digestive fire”. It refers to the function of the stomach and small intestine and has a very important role in the body:
- it breaks down food (fuel) and provides us with the energy we need for our activities
- maintains a proper indoor environment inside the body, just as fire maintains a pleasant temperature in the room and drywalls.
When the digestive fire is strong, the man is full of vigor and has a good physical and mental tone.
When the digestive fire is weak, according to traditional medicine, “moisture” accumulates in the body, just as in an unheated house there is moisture and mold that destroy the walls and make the air unbreathable. The “moisture” described in traditional medicine appears in the body as excess mucus and toxins.
The effects of a weak digestive fire:
- difficult digestion,
- appetite suppressant,
- frequent mycoses,
- water retention at the feet.
How to put out the digestive fire every day without realizing it
When you eat, your stomach secretes gastric juice to break down food. It is a combination of water, hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes, and has an acidic character. Normally, food that reaches the stomach will be broken down by digestive enzymes. Then the nutrients will pass into the small intestine to be absorbed into the bloodstream.
But if you drink water immediately after eating, the water reaches the stomach and dilutes the gastric juice, which makes the digestive enzymes can no longer break down food. Thus, they pass into the intestine largely undigested. Because of this:
- the amount of nutrients absorbed is much smaller, which leads to a lower amount of energy for you
- undigested food ferments or rots and generates mucus and toxins in the body that make you sick.
What does this have to do with rapid weight loss?
Maintaining a normal weight and burning excess fat depends on your metabolism, ie the body’s ability to convert nutrients into energy.
If your metabolism is too slow, you will “burn” fat too slowly and you will not be able to lose weight.
If you have a fast metabolism, it will be much easier for your body to get rid of excess fat.
And metabolism is just a physical manifestation of the digestive fire in traditional medicine. A good digestive fire means a faster metabolism. “Light up” your digestive tract again and you will lose weight much faster.
How you rekindle and intensify digestive fire
If you have come this far, you already know the simple method that will help you lose weight more easily and have more energy.
Here’s what to do:
- do not drink water immediately after eating. Refrain from drinking water (or any other liquid) 1 hour after each meal
- do not drink water (or any other liquid) less than 30 minutes before a meal
It’s that simple. Do this for 30 days and I guarantee that you will have more energy, you will lose weight faster, you will get rid of bloating, sinusitis and more.
How do I know the method works and how can I guarantee you? Here is my story.
A few years ago, every morning I woke up irritated, with an unpleasant sensation in the forehead area, above the eyes, and behind the eyes. It gave me a bad mood and ruined every beginning of the day. Every day. I had sinusitis.
Also during that period, I discovered by studying traditional Chinese medicine the effects that “moisture” has on the human body. I also found out that by changing the way I drink water I can reactivate my digestive fire. So I decided on the spot to do an experiment and stop drinking water right after dinner.
The results appeared immediately. In less than a month, I noticed that I woke up in the morning without the annoying feeling of irritation behind my eyes and forehead. It was a great joy for me, because I didn’t even know what it was like to wake up in the morning.
So I tell you from my own experience, the method works and will bring you the expected benefits if you use it.
Tips and tricks
When you start to refrain from drinking water immediately after a meal, it may be difficult at first, due to habit. To quench your thirst, drink a cup of hot tea or a small glass of hot water after a meal. Thirst will disappear.
Listen to your body. At first, try not to drink water an hour after eating. After a while, you will realize for yourself if and how much you can reduce the one-hour interval. For me, 40 minutes is enough, but 30 minutes is too little. If you feel the need to reduce the time you do not drink water after a meal, experiment. Drink water after 50 minutes and see how you feel. If it’s ok, you can try for 40 minutes. After you reactivate your digestive fire you will feel very clear when “you poured the bucket of water on the fire” and turned it off.
If you want to reduce internal humidity even more, reduce the consumption of dairy products, cheeses and carbohydrates (especially those that contain refined sugar).
Now you know how to drink water to lose weight faster, have better digestion, get rid of chronic fatigue, bloating, sinusitis and other diseases caused by poor digestive fire.
Before I finish, I’ll tell you something else. We talked about how to drink water to make it easier for you to lose weight. What I want you to know is that there is water that helps you lose weight more easily, because it helps you eliminate acidic waste from the body. I mean alkaline water. It’s worth finding out more about.
