1. Drink more water. Our bodies are approximately 65% water. Water intake is a significant contributor to our overall health. It keeps us hydrated, reduces cravings, and cleanses our body. The optimal amount of daily water for an individual is half of your body weight in ounces. If you weigh 150 lbs., you should drink at least 75 oz. of water a day. You can alkalize your water, making it even more beneficial, by adding lemon or lime. Drinking warm lemon water first thing in the morning aids digestion and assists weight loss. Another alkalizing aid is 1-2 tsp. of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in 8 oz. of room temperature water. You can even add fresh herbs, cucumber slices, citrus, apple slices, or other fruit to infuse your water with a little flavor. Enjoy & drink up!
