The Benefits of Starting the Day With Water

Minutes to a Healthier You: Kick Start Your Day With Water!

A healthy lifestyle extends beyond the gym and well into your simple everyday acts. Even if you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, start your day off right off right by drinking eight ounces of water. After sleeping for seven to eight hours, your metabolism has slowed down and your body is slightly dehydrated. Before downing your latte, green tea, or juice, have a glass of water. This simple habit will kick start your metabolism and prevent you from over eating at breakfast. Studies also show that hydrated cells are said to help to flush out fat!

My acupuncturist told me the same thing-- especially if the water is room temperature or slightly warmer-- not cold.
