Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. XXX
User :   hello
Doctor :   Do you have medical queries?
User :   yes, one small query
User :   my eating habits are somewhat irregular
User :   but I drink little water whenever I feel hungry
User :   last week one of my friends was suggesting me not to do this
Doctor :   ok
User :   he said it will increase the acid secretion
User :   and it will lead to more acidity
User :   til date i have never faced acidity probs
User :   is this really dangerous?
Doctor :   It is not dangerous though but not a good practice to suppress hunger
Doctor :   When the stomach says ' I am hungry' you have to listen to it and munch on a simple snack
Doctor :   which can satisfy the hunger
Doctor :   The acid acts by digesting the snack and help to keep its control
User :   okay. actually, throughout the day we will be busy in some planned unplanned meetings. we usually think that we will eat after finshing the meeting etc. but that doesnt happen manytimes
Doctor :   Ok, grab a couple of biscuits and that does not take much time
Doctor :   It takes the same time of drinking a glass of water
User :   okay. yes..this sounds reasonable
User :   I think i need to keep some high fibre biscuits which would cater to this need
Doctor :   Perfect
Doctor :   It wont add calories and it satisfies the hunger for time and takes good time to digest
Doctor :   because high fibre has complex carbs to digest and hence takes good time
User :   great. can you suggest any such product?
Doctor :   XXX XXXbiscuits
Doctor :   XXX whole wheat biscuits
User :   great. Thanks so much for your suggestions and time! I wanted to start this chat by asking how are you Dr.! But this seems to be somewhat unreasonable question to a doctor
Doctor :   Hello are you there
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Do you have any other questions?
User :   no, not at this point of time. Thanks a lot!
Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me
Doctor :   Bye for now
User :   bye
