30 or 60 minutes after a meal?



Recommended Posts

When were you told you could start drinking fluids after eating?

I was instructed by my dietician to wait 60 minutes, always and forever no matter what but recently started working out with a trainer that has a 10 year history of working with post-op bariatric patients who says sipping after 30 minutes is ok. Both are adamant in their beliefs. They are both very smart and I respect them. I can find information to support both camps. Intellectually I know I need to do what works for me, ultimately I want to do what is best for me. my Fluid needs have increased with working out so I'd love that extra 30 minutes to get more in but don't want to decrease my chances of long term success. It's effing frustrating.

I was told to stop drinking 30 minutes before a meal and wait 30 minutes after the meal to start drinking Water again. And to take 30 minutes to eat my meal

I was told no Fluid 30 before or after. I don't think I could ever get in all the fluid if I had to wait an hour on either side!

I was told 15/1 hour. I've seen 30/30 and tried drinking sooner after eating and I feel sick so sticking to one hour.

I was also told 60 minutes after. I stick to that most of the time but have done 45 minutes a few times.

Thank you for your responses. Looks just like everything else gastric bypass rules related...we all get instructed something a little different. If anyone runs across articles that state why we should wait 60 minutes after eating I'd be interested in reading them. Thanks again!

So even my own literature from my dr, the Nut and the bariatric dept contradicted each other. My surgeon is a but radical. He basically said go vegetarian (not happening). He told me drinking and eating should be completely separate and you should not drink for an hour and a half after eating. The paper work from the clinic 1 hour. The nut 30 minutes, the hospital 30 minutes. So I wait at least 30 minutes. If I waited an hour and a half, I would never get all my Water in. I try to stick in the 30 - 45 minute range.
