A lot of amazing food, great drinks and an unforgettable time with your friends and family. It all sounds great except for one thing – how you feel the next morning. Unfortunately, all that excess, in the form of carbs, fat, salt, sugar, and alcohol, can leave you feeling bloated, tired, hungry, and guilty. Here’s how to get back to your normal routine and give your body what it’s craving and re-establish a healthy equilibrium after your 4th of July celebration.
1. Drink Lemon Water
There is no better way to start your detox than waking up in the morning and drinking a full glass of warm water with freshly squeezed lemon. Lemons are packed full of nutrition and incorporating lemon water into your diet every day will help you fast track your detox. When you drink warm water with freshly squeezed lemon juice in it as soon as you wake up, it flushes your system and cleanses your body. You can also chop up lemons and put them directly into your water bottle to sip on throughout the day. If the taste is too sour for you, try adding a little bit of honey, but keep it in check – you don’t want to consume unnecessary sugars.
