Many of them did this so that we could get the nutrients of the food and not get full from our beverage. But many times that left us constipated as we got older and made it harder for our bodies to break down our food.
Since then, experts have learned that we should drink before, during and after our meal to not only ensure our food digests properly but also helps break down fat. Yes, that’s right, there’s a drink we can drink before each meal to ensure our fat gets broken down which in turn helps us lose weight.
