Healthy Friday: Warm lemon water 1st thing, kick starts weight loss

The do’s and don’ts

Drink the juice of one lemon in one cup of warm water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything else. You can halve these amounts if you prefer.

Rinse your mouth right after drinking the lemon water to prevent damage to tooth enamel. Wait an hour before you brush your teeth.
