Your simple detox elixir

cucumber water

You want to know what keeps you energized, clear-headed, feeling full, and keeps your skin plump and hydrated? You guessed right, water! As you prepare for total health, the most simplest and inexpensive way to start is by drinking more water. 

If you haven't already begun this detoxifying ritual you will begin today. First thing every morning, drink a tall glass of warm water and squeeze the juice of half a lemon. Natural lemon juice contains electrolytes, detoxifies your organs, and stimulates digestion. So you're already prepping your body to break down your breakfast. This practice is genius. 

Don't know how much water to drink per day? Here's what to do...
Divide your weight in pounds by two and convert that into ounces. Example: 150 pounds / 2 = 75 ounces.
(You may need to increase the amount of water intake if you are intensively training, pregnant, under hot weather, or have a urinary tract infection).

Is it a challenge to drink all that water because you're running around too much or annoyed of the size of your bladder? That's ok you can eat your water! Here are some high-water content foods:

  • cucumbers
  • grapefruit
  • celery
  • spinach
  • bell peppers
  • cabbage
  • radishes
  • watermelon (ooh can't wait for summer)
