Why You Should Drink Water On An Empty Stomach Every Morning

There are many benefits to drinking water on an empty stomach every morning! Plus, here’s how to make drinking water a habit you easily do.

How do you feel when you are dehydrated? Slow and sluggish, right?

Well, when you sleep your body becomes dehydrated.

After all, you just went 7-8 hours without drinking any water. 

Even if you don’t feel thirsty, your body naturally is.

As a result, there are many health benefits to drinking water on an empty stomach.

Immediately upon waking, you should drink water on an empty stomach for both…

  1. longevity reasons
  2. weight loss reasons

Drinking water in the morning helps to…

1. Boost metabolism (by a huge 24% for 90 minutes)

Yep, research has shown that drinking water in the morning – on an empty stomach – leads to an increase in the rate in which people burn calories as opposed to storing them as fat.

Plus this metabolism boost also leads to feeling far more energized.

This is my classy way of saying that when you drink water in the morning, you help your constipation issues.  Wink, wink!

3. Act as a natural appetite suppressant

Research shows that when you drink a glass of water first thing in the morning – on an empty stomach – before breakfast – you curb your appetite, which helps you to eat less and still feel satisfied.

You can also drink water before lunch, dinner and snacks…to better manage your eating habits.

4. Cleanse the body of toxins

When you drink water on an empty stomach, you improve your blood circulation by flushing out unwanted toxins.

As a result, your skin will look better and your body and spirit will feel less stressed for the day ahead. 

Basically, water is the key ingredient your body uses to flush out toxins.

With this in mind, you want to make sure that the water you drink is clean – and doesn’t ironically contribute more toxins in your body.

After all, the more contaminants which are in your drinking water, the less capacity your water has to carry toxins out of your body.

Plus, paradoxically if you do NOT drink clean, filtered water, then you’ll simply be contributing toxins back into your body – the opposite of what you want.

How To Create A Habit of Drinking Water In The Morning…

  • As soon as you wake up, drink anywhere from 8 oz – 32 oz of water. (No, coffee does not count!)

  • Your goal is to drink a full 32 ounces of water first thing in the morning. Admittedly this 32 ounce goal can feel like a tough feat at first. So start with 8 ounces – then slowly – each day – keep increasing the amount of water you drink –  until 32 ounces feels doable – and even enjoyable.

  • After you drink your water, try not to eat anything for the next 30 – 45 minutes.
