YES. I don't like to drink right before I eat either because it kills my appetite. I generally have water after I eat. Sometimes I get a craving for sweet tea or coke. I'm more of an eater than drinker. Drinking gets in the way and I don't taste my food as well if I mix in between. I like OJ in the morning too, but only alone or after I eat to wash it all down, oh so refreshing.
I don't do this for health reasons but I found out that apparently it is better to not mix and some say wait 30 mins after eating before drinking. I don't do this. I drink right after I'm done eating.
