Many people this time of year are feeling tired, rundown, sluggish & sore and decide to make a lot of changes to their diet, lifestyle and routine. This is usually due to overeating and under exercising during the holidays. Even though cutting out sugar, gluten or alcohol are all good ideas, they are hard to sustain if that’s not a normal part of your daily life. Instead of prioritizing these “negative” changes, focus on adding healthy habits and dietary changes. The list is endless but what is the most important?
Water! Every body needs about half it’s weight in ounces of water per day. That’s 75 ounces for 150 pound person. The best way to do this is to drink two glasses of water when you first wake up before eating or drinking anything else. Focus on consuming the rest of your water in between meals so you don’t dilute digestive enzymes.
