What do you do first thing when you wake up in the morning? Well, before you do whatever that is, here’s what you should be doing: drinking 16oz. of water. Here’s why:

  • It will fire up your metabolism by about 24% for 90 minutes
  • Getting that fluid right into your body after you wake up helps to flush out toxins in your body first thing in the morning
  • It will help your brain function better. Since Brain tissue is 75% water, your brain doesn’t operate as well when you’re dehydrated. Drinking water first thing will help with this, and will also help you feel less drained and fatigued.
  • It will help you to eat less!

“One study showed that people who drink a glass of water before every meal lost 4.5 pounds over a three-month period, because “it fills up the stomach with a substance that has zero calories,” and people “feel full as a result.”
