17 Feb WHEN TO DRINK WATER
Imagine not drinking anything, nothing at all, all day long. How thirsty would you be? Pretty thirsty right?
Just imagine how you would be feeling right about now. No protein shakes, no water, no coffee or tea, no alcohol, nothing.
Start your day by drinking water. Why?
- Drinking water as soon as you get up and before you eat anything purifies your internal system. One of the most important results of drinking water in the morning is colon cleansing, which then enables better absorption of nutrients from various foods.
Drink 1.5 litres of water first thing in the morning (you’ve already had 350ml in your morning mojo).
- Avoid drinking or eating anything else for an hour before drinking the water.
Avoid drinking or eating for an hour after drinking the water.
Water is essential for every single cell in our body to function at its highest level. If there is too little water in a cell, it will shrivel up and die, if there is too much water in a cell it will burst. Water is jammed packed with minerals and electrolytes and you can’t live without it. It dissolves other substances and carries nutrients and other material (such as blood cells) around the body, making it possible for every organ to function.
Water helps increase your energy levels, promote weight loss, flush out toxins, improve the quality of your skin, improve digestion, help relieve joint pain, balance the lymphatic, help cure illness, cleanse the colon and renew cells.
That’s exactly why you need to drink water when you wake up, before you reach for coffee!
If you drink very little water, you will retain MORE water and your body weight will increase. And even worse, it can make you look puffy. So, now you know, the more water you drink, the less you will retain it (even though it may seem counterintuitive), it’s time to get drinking.
