So if you are clear and are ready then take these tips in to consideration and be on your way! You may have heard them before, but are you doing them and staying consistent with them long enough for them to work??
Follow these guidelines: As soon as you wake up drink a glass of water, before every meal have a glass of water, and during a workout have water. Before you know it your on your way to staying hydrated and moving your system into seeing good results. (Yes, a cup of coffee is OK or some green tea, decaf and organic is best.)
