Hot Lemon Water – do you do this?



Tosca Reno – Love her books.  In every single one of them she talks about how she starts her day by squeezing a lemon in a mug of hot water.  I tried it once, didn’t like it.  Tried it again, didn’t like it.  Kept reading about the health benefits of it and thought I’d try it for a few days.  Well – after about a week of just a few sips each day, I am now starting every morning with this ritual and look forward to it!

I also watched Dr. Oz the other morning when I noticed the topic was 7 essentials for woman 40 and older and this was one of his tips also! 

With some persistence and encouragement from others who are healthy and fit, I tried and tried this, and now just like doing my FMFL DVDs 3-5 days a week, it has become a GOOD habit and just part of my daily routine. 

Buy some lemons – try it.  It may take a few days or a week, but you’ll like it and look forward to it! 

Do you do this already?  Are you going to try?
