Most people don't reach for a glass of water when they wake up! Coffee and orange juice have become staples of our morning meals. Could you imagine going for 8 hours at work without drinking anything. Chances are you would be dehydrated and parched. When we wake up after 8 hours of sleep our body needs to be hydrated. German scientists recently found that drinking 16 ounces of water boosts metabolism by 24 percent for 90 minutes afterward. For anyone trying to let go of weight, this is an excellent tip, but also for anyone trying to cut down on caffine and sugar. Our bodies love water, so start waking up to a cup and see the benefits it provides!
