Your body needs a certain pH level to digest the food. This pH level is disturbed if you consume water after having food items which already contain water. This is because too much of water will dilute the pH of your digestive system and will lead to a weakened digestion. Due to the presence of fibre and water, fruits like papaya or melon are not advised to be taken on an empty stomach as they dilute the pH level of our digestive system.
