I've gone through many articles on Google.

One says it's good to drink water after meal as it aids digestion while others say never drink water after a meal because it will dilute the acids (i.e. HCl).

I am a teenager and want to gain weight. Is it beneficial to drink water immediately after a meal (as I usually do)?

What is actually going on there?

  • You don't have to drink anything at all if your food has enough water content. But I know some people who feel really uncomfortable after eating if they don't drink.
