Convert your food into fuel …

…Have the energy to do the things that make you happiest.

Why wait to eat?
The digestion zone is that sacred time when our bodies are converting the food we already ate into fuel.  And we wait for the digestion zone so we aren’t adding food on top of partially digested food.

It’s sort of like when you have clothes in the dryer that are almost dry…Makes sense to let them finish drying before you add a heap of wet clothes- doesn’t it?

Why wait different times for different meal sizes?
Similar to a small load of laundry vs. filling up the whole machine.  In general, the larger the meal, the longer it takes to digest.

Why wait 12 minutes to drink water?
You may want to consider separating your hydration and your eating.

#1 reason for this:  you chew more when you are eating = better for digestion

If you need water to “swallow” your food or to help it go down, that’s your body letting you know that you have an opportunity to chew more at your next meal.

#2 reason:  the ‘OK to drink water’ reminder is a nice reminder to drink water and stay hydrated.

More information
Once we eat, our food travels through the digestive tract to be chemically broken down and converted into energy…. and honoring the digestion zone = more energy!

The app presents you with a choice to describe the size of your meal.
Tap the appropriate meal size and the timers start.
You will be notified when it's OK to drink water and when it is OK to schedule your next meal.
