    Just thinking about the water thing in an evolutionary sense,
    we probably only drank water once or twice a day,

    It would not make any sense to live next to a watering hole as predators know herbivores must drink and this would have been a favorite hunting area, so it is likely that we sheltered some distance from a reliable water source, near enough to walk to when thirsty, but far enough away that we weren't in the midst of the action when a pride of lions came to survey the watering hole pickings for dinner.
    So the likelihood is we had a late afternoon meal, then possibly some time after before dark wandered to the watering hole as a group, all had a good drink while on the look out for predators, then wandered back to our hidey hole to bed in for the night, maybe nibble some more scraps from the main meal.

    It all makes a bit of sense when you pick out the details and compare it to the "Mediterranian diet", it may not be the food types so much as the behaviours.
    *They do not indulge in big breakfasts generally.
    *They have most of their activity from morning to late afternoon.
    *They usually have their main meal mid afternoon.
    *The meal usually starts with some pickled, smoked, soured foods as nibbles
    *They have a Siesta, rest after the meal to allow digestion.
    *They go for a walk and socialise in the late afternoon/early evening
    *They tend to have a very light dinner if any at all, often just some black coffee & fruits.

    Just change the setting from the quaint Italian/Spanish/French village and plant it on the African Savanah, quick change of clothes and the behaviours are much the same, maybe this is the key health benefit of the "Medeterranian diet".

    Have a cup of tea, if you are having digestion issues, peppermint, camomile or lemon and ginger tea are generally pretty soothing.

    I find since I started primal I *have* to have a glass of water shortly after eating to cleanse my palate, else I fantasize about sweets endlessly. I do hear that drinking after eating is bad for digestion, but haven't noticed anything...
