Drink one to two glasses of warm water mixed with a little lemon juice and honey first thing in the morning. It has natural vitamins and antioxidants and will help you flush out toxins from your body.

Cinnamon helps manage blood sugar levels. So add half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder to a glass of water, let it boil a little, allow it to cool and then add a little honey. Have it early in the morning and before going to sleep at night.

Methi dana (fenugreek seeds) soaked overnight and taken first thing in the morning helps in flushing out the harmful toxins from the body while adding vitamins. It does a lot of good to your skin, colon, hair, blood, heart and hence, the entire body.

(Bonus tip – It also helps reduce the pain during menstrual cramps.)

It is essential to watch your water intake and keep yourself hydrated. Dehydration can lead to water retention and bloating. Inculcate habit of having a glass of water half an hour before your meal (keeps you from over eating), before taking a shower (helps lower blood pressure), before going to bed (keeps you hydrated at night) and you’ll do a lot of good to your body.

Eating small meals
Try to eat small meals throughout the day, instead of 3 big meals. That will help in keeping your metabolism active. Practice portion control, it will keep you from over eating.

Green tea
Green tea is a better substitute for your coffee; it has powerful antioxidants and important nutrients and helps reduce your appetite, strengthens your immune system, speeds up your metabolism among a host of other benefits.

Eat berries like blueberries, blackberries or cranberries in the morning. They are nutrient-dense, low on calories, easy to digest, reduce cholesterol level and satisfy your sugar cravings.
