Staying healthy is always the main priority. While eating right and exercising are another topic, I find there are certain habits I do daily that truly keep me healthy and contribute to weight loss. My morning ritual consist of a multi vitamin with my probiotic, water with lemon and black coffee. My evening regimen consists of green tea, or camomile tea, with activated charcoal. While neither my morning or night routines are some kind of weight loss or health secret, they keep my body in check.
Water with lemon
Green tea/Camomile tea
One of the first things I do when I wake up in the morning is have an 8 ounce glass of water with lemon in it, preferably room temperature. This helps to wake up your body, start your metabolism and its one of the best things to give your organs before you ingest anything else. After this, comes my multi-vitamin and my probiotic. Both I find super important and I can actually feel the difference on the days that I forget to take them (which doesn't happen too often). Followed by my black coffee which gives me my boost of energy to start off my day.
In the evening I enjoy tea to help calm my body down before bed, which would be the camomile or to give me a bit more energy in the evening, which would be the green tea. The activated charcoal is a great additive before bed as a way to cleanse your system.
Combined, my morning and evening rituals contribute to keeping me on track and weight loss. Before I had added in my probiotic and activated charcoal, I was constantly bloated and felt like the weight around my mid section wouldn't budge. Now, I don't have that issue at all. And I mean it, at all. Both are so useful in cleansing your system and getting rid of the toxins your body holds on to that gives you that bloat and sluggish feeling.
I recommend a multi-vitamin and probiotic to all of my clients along with tea time once a day. Tea is a natural diuretic which also helps with the "cleansing" aspect, but also gives you that boost of energy and curbs your appetite. This is not a lose weight fast guide, or secret of any kind but the perfect way to keep your body balanced without all the junk.
