When you wake up each morning, squeeze half of an organic lemon into 8 ounces of room temperature or warm water–ice water is shocking to the system–especially first thing in the morning. Drink your lemon water 10 to 20 minutes before eating anything. This is a great way to get re-hydrated first thing in the morning.
