I drink throughout the meal. I heard that it makes you full faster so it just became habit. Now when I was younger I did eat without drinking b/c we couldn’t have anything to drink until we cleaned our plates. Otherwise we would have had a belly full of kool-aid instead of squash…LOL

I usually drink 1/2 the glass (all at once) about 2/3 of the way through the meal, and then finish it at the end. I can’t eat and drink all at the same time – it’s one or the other. I’m also not so much a sipper as a gulper.

@Mrs.tobe: lol. The waiter/waitress usually comments on my water intake. I have had them just bring over a pitcher many times. LOL 🙂

@Goodie:I know, right?!
@JamaicaBride:You must eat your squash! No kool aid for you! lol
My dad can seriously down like 5 glasses of tea or water n under an hour if we’re out to eat. Maybe that’s where I get it from.

I never drink when I’m eating a meal. If I’m at a restaurant I’ll down two glasses of water before the food even makes it to the table, and then another after, but no sips in between unless something is exceptionally spicy or tastes gross.
However, if I’m at a drinks and appies kind of thing, I may have a few bites of food in between drinking.

@Mrs.tobe Lol, I have been to several resturaunts where they just offer to leave a pitcher. I do have some class… so, when we are somewhere fancy I try really hard not to down a cup after each bite I can usually do about 3 glasses.
@DesireeAnne My fI also looks at me in amazement. He does not quite know how one person can take in so much water. I have a cup of water with me at all times. The only downfall to this is that I am always running to the ladies room 🙂

@ddw: I can tend to be a gulper at times too, I thought “sip” sounded like something more people might relate to… LOL
@LadySapphire:I’m psychic 😉
@beenthere2:LOL! I hear ya, it takes work! You are a very thirsty girl!

we both drink while we eat. hubs usually drinks so much that he downs both our water glasses before the waiter comes to refill our glasses when we’re out to eat!
i drink water constantly anyway. i’ve noticed that at school i take a sip from my water bottle every time i finish saying something during class. like, i can’t stop talking unless i have something else to do with my mouth or something. weird! … aaand now i need to go fill up my water glass again….
