How To Make Your Lemon Water
Simply squeeze half a lemon in lukewarm water (use a whole lemon if you weigh more than 150 pounds). Why lukewarm (or room temperature) instead of cold or hot water? It is because hot or cold water takes more energy to process, so your first glass in the morning should be lukewarm or at room temperature to slowly wake your body and kick start digestion.

It would be better if you fuel your body with the right kind of foods such as organic fruits and veggies. Start your day with a nourishing and debloating breakfast.
