Friday Fit Tip: wake up & chug water

Happy Friday, friends! We made it through another week! As usual, I’m providing you with a Friday Fit Tip to keep you on track this weekend!

Today’s tip: chug a liter of water right when you wake up in the morning. This tip comes straight from Cameron Diaz! She shares this advice in her book, The Body  Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body.

Diaz herself follows this tip every morning. “It’s very important to start your day off with a lot of energy,” she says. “For me, that starts with getting up, brushing my teeth, and drinking some water—I drink a liter of water straight down.”

Drinking water right away in the morning is an easy way to prep your bod for a healthy day. Here are a few benefits of drinking water right away in the AM:

  1. Water kick-starts your metabolism: Drinking at least one large glass of water in the morning can boost your body’s metabolism by about 24 percent!
  2. Water helps you stay full longer: water will help fill your stomach! Did you know that drinking a large glass of water before meals can help prevent overeating?
  3. Water helps your body flush out toxins: when you drink water in the morning before you eat, this helps to purify your colon, allowing nutrients to be absorbed more easily. Your kidneys also function better when your body is getting enough fluids.

To help you remember to drink up right away in the morning, fill a cup with water before bed and put it on your nightstand or somewhere close to your bed. Chug that water right when you wake up!
