Title Correction: Eating and Drinking at the same time?

Are you the type of person who eats and drinks at the same time? What I mean is do you eat your meals and take sips of your beverage going back and forth between food and drink? Or do you eat all of your food then drink your beverage?

I heard a person can get full faster eating and drinking at the same time. Do you agree?


Bonus Questions:

1) Is it true that a person should chew their food for thirty seconds then swallow?

2) When you eat do you watch something on your laptop/television/tablet or not?

3) Do you inhale your food rather than taking your time and savoring it?


What do you think?

I typically drink a glass or two of liquid to my meals (that is taking sips between food). Typically water, tea, ginger ale or tomato juice. Tomato juice in particular will get you full faster.

1) It's a good way to educate people to avoid 3) but I don't bother much with it, once my food is in small enough pieces I swallow. The only thing I'm particularly careful with is fish to make sure there's no bones in it.
2) Occasionally. I typically eat with my family so there's usually a discussion going on or music or the odd movie playing in the background. When I eat by myself I usually am sitting in front of a screen.
3) Only when I'm in a hurry and don't have time. As mentioned I typically eat while talking to family so our meals drag on for a bit.

Thanks for sharing.


Whenever I eat something, I always take sips during chew time and plus I don't savor my meals.

I only take the occasional sips, which is almost always water.

1) Saliva is an important step in digestion. It's better to chew for a long time and to eat slowly in general.

2) Only if it's something I don't mind bringing to my room.

3) I always inhale food because I don't care for eating.

I need a drink with my food.

1) Is it true that a person should chew their food for thirty seconds then swallow? Should, yes. I don’t. If I want porridge, I’ll make porridge.

2) When you eat do you watch something on your laptop/television/tablet or not? I watch TV.

3) Do you inhale your food rather than taking your time and savoring it? Always taking my time.

it's wiser to drink a small glass of water before you eat, for those who can, and eating/drinking at the same time results in getting fuller faster AND results in the person being hungry sooner too. I typically eat when I'm hungry and then drink fluids afterward.

1) Is it true that a person should chew their food for thirty seconds then swallow? I use to count 30 or so to chew something up, but, now I don't need to. the longer you chew the longer it takes for your brain to accept that full feeling. it takes a bit for the brain to communicate with the stomach after all.

2) When you eat do you watch something on your laptop/television/tablet or not? since I'm such a slow eater, I'm doing something at all times. watching, streaming, playing online, something to entertain myself. it takes me around 45 minutes to an hour to eat. and yes, the food is typically long cold by that time and what once started out as fork and spoon turns into finger foods.

3) Do you inhale your food rather than taking your time and savoring it? the more you inhale the fatter you're going to get eventually. it takes around 20 minutes for your brain to accept that you're full, if you're inhaling your food and/or not chewing it properly, then you're going to gain the weight. not to mention this can cause stomach problems and "going to the bathroom" issues if you don't chew properly. so, please chew, that way, if you're ever somewhere and have to throw up, we see food particles and not full food items. to this day I cannot go anywhere near while beans and smoke sausages. so, for future's sake, chew your food!

Well I hate eating so I try to chew as little as possible and drink as much as I can to get it over with as quickly as I can.

Eat and drink at the same time.

I don't think I know anyone who finishes their entire meal without taking a sip of their beverage until after they're done eating.
