In brief: Digestion

There's no concern that water will dilute the digestive juices or interfere with digestion.
In fact, drinking water during or after a meal actually aids digestion. Water and other liquids help break down food so that your body can absorb the nutrients. Water also softens stools, which helps prevent constipation.
