Each night as our bodies digest the food and fast, our bodies slow down, holding onto any toxins that may have been present in the foods. Lemons are an alkaline food, and they are known to flush our bodies of the toxins that tend to build up.
Not only does it flush your body of toxins, it also helps to hydrate your body! It is known to aid in weight loss! Add all the healing properties, vitamins and minerals found in lemons, and you have one powerful food!
Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning is going to set you up for a vibrant and refreshing day! It will settle any cravings that you are experiencing first thing in the morning, along with suppressing your appetite long enough to get a good low-glycemic meal prepared!
Why warm water? Drinking ice-cold water takes more energy to absorb. So drinking it warm in the morning allows it to fast track through your system before you get to your meal!
You don’t want it scalding hot though, just lukewarm, and it is best to use purified water.
When I prepare my warm lemon water, I heat a kettle of purified water until steaming, or sometimes the whistle blows if I’m busy doing other things. We do not have a way of heating the water that comes out of our R/O system. I then fill my tall glass 2/3 of the way with water from the R/O tap, squeeze half of a lemon into it, then pour the hot water on top. It makes it the perfect temperature.
Making this a daily part of your routine will help you reach your health goals!
