    I do not drink while eating.  I’ve always been told that you shouldn’t drink while eating because it slows down digestion as well.  Especially a cold drink.

    I tend to drink afterwards and not during. Other half drinks all the way through his meal.

    I take sips of my drink throughout the entire meal.  I had a friend once who wouldn’t even have anything to drink near her when she was eating and I thought it was so weird.  My husband also takes sips throughout a meal. I cannot go an entire meal without anything to drink.

    I drink while eating usually, especially when things are super salty.

    If I am at a resturant I seem to drink more water while eating. I usually go through about 3 glasses of water while at a resturant (1 hour). At home, I have a small glass of water I sip on.

    I drink while eating. Fiance usually doesn’t even have a drink on the table when we eat. He claims that because there were 7 people at his dad’s as a child if you took the time to drink you missed out on seconds…

    @Mrs.tobe: That’s what we were just saying.  I asked my husband if he thought it was weird and he said it’s not too weird but we both agreed if bread is involved it’s much harder to not take sips.

    @Mrs.tobe: 😛 None of you saw what I wrote.

    I should add that J drinks a can of soda during dinner.  Sometimes two.  Oh, and I only drink water as well.  If I’m at a restaurant, I down my water immediately so I can get a refill for after dinner.  I’m strange.

    I always drink lots during my meal – it fills me up and I eat less as a result.

    It depends. If I’m eating something salty or spicy, I tend to sip water. If we’re out and I have a beer or a glass of wine, I tend to sip at it before I start eating, and then don’t drink again until after I’m finished.
