I like to start my morning out as well as possible in order to have a successful day. So, I start with Lemon water. It always has lemon but sometimes I add in watermelon or strawberry. I have this awesome infusion cup that I use and I love it! I make sure that I have the entire bottle of lemon water before eating breakfast!

Here’s a quick run down of why I always have lemon in my morning water:

  • When you eat your blood sugar levels can rapidly increase then drop very rapidly. This results in sugar cravings.  There’s a lot of evidence that suggests adding lemon to your water helps to keep blood sugar levels from increasing too rapidly after a meal. It also helps to slow down the rate at which your food is digested so you’ll stay full longer too.
  • Lemon water provides your body with hydrating electrolytes in the form of potassium, calcium and magnesium.
  • The acid in lemon interacts with various enzymes in your body and stimulates the secretion of gastric juice. This helps your body with digestion.
  • Your liver produces more enzymes with the help of lemon water than any other substance.
  • Lemon water also aids your liver in helping it release toxins.
  • Lemon water can help you better regulate your bowel movements.
  • Lemons have pectin fiber, which aids in the suppression of hunger cravings.

So, add some lemon to your water and drink it even before breakfast! I find it very helpful!
