In today’s video, I’m going to cover how to make lemon water and the health benefits of drinking lemon water.
One of the best daily practices that I follow, is getting up at 5:00am, and starting my day with a glass of freshly squeezed lemon water, on an empty stomach.
Yes, I drink my lemon water before drinking my coconut oil coffee and before brushing my teeth.
In fact, I’ve been following this healthy habit for over 7 years, and have received so much positive feedback on it.

If you haven’t incorporated this quick and simple daily habit yet, I’m personally challenging you to start drinking lemon water, first thing in the morning, for the next 28 days.
After those 28 days, come back to this post, and tell me how you feel in the comment box below.
Now I know you may be thinking, “but what if I always drink coffee as soon as I get up and what about breakfast?“.
Well, I’m not telling you that you can’t drink coffee or eat breakfast.
I simply recommend you postpone it for at least 30 minutes after you drink your lemon water.
My dentist also recommends waiting at least 30 minutes after drinking lemon water to brush your teeth.
This is simply a pre-caution to avoid any possible enamel issues.
Seriously, if you’re looking for a simple and inexpensive way to improve the way you look and feel, take this 28 Day Lemon Water Challenge.
Why 28 days?
Well that’s typically how long it takes to form a habit.
The simple healthy habits you instill during those first few “magic minutes” in the morning can set the course for your day.
I’m confident, that after you feel the positive effects of this simple habit, it will easily become a part of your daily routine for the rest of your life.
I told you this was going to be quick and simple.
These are just a few of the health benefits of drinking lemon water.
Start drinking one glass of room temperature organic lemon water, first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach.
After 28 days, see if you feel the positive effects of implementing this into your daily routine.
If you do, don’t just stop drinking lemon water after 28 days.
Make it a positive daily habit for the rest of your life.
You can increase the nutritional content and add tons of flavor to your meals (especially chicken, fish, and as a vinaigrette dressing over salads) by replacing the sugary, belly busting sauces, with lemon juice.
Adding lemon juice to water also adds flavor which can help you drink more water (we all know the importance of staying hydrated).
That’s your tip of the day.
