That is a great question Sherri! Overall water is integral to the digestive system by transporting the nutrients throughout the body and actually aiding in proper digestion. I can see your concern with the diluting of enzymes and how that would undo any digestive benefits, however I believe this happens in rare instances. More than likely you will not be drinking so much water that this would be the case. Sipping your water before, during and after meals is just fine and won’t be hindering your digestion, the benefits of the water will far outweigh anything else. Don’t be trying to chug down a couple 32 oz bottles of water during a meal, I think that is far outdoing things and could actually be harmful, but do continue to drink water. You are right in that drinking water is important on this plan, but also for everyone getting in more water is important. Also I might note that you will be intaking many vegetables and some fruits in this plan which actually contain a lot of water as well so you will be plenty hydrated! Don’t stress out too much about the specific water intake, rather keep a bottle with you wherever you go and stay hydrated, but don’t feel the need to force yourself to drink too much water either. It’s all about balance which is what is so great with this program!
