HEALTHY LIFESTYLE: WATER
I use to be a pop drinker. I would drink Pepsi or Sprite every day, maybe even twice a day O_o! I've learn better, so I started to drink water and not pop and I've notice the difference in my skin and weight. I don't like water, but I do when I put a slice of lemon in it. I drink about 8-12 cups of water a day (8oz size).
To keep our bodies hydrated and healthy, we should drink at least 64 ounces of water every day. Add some lemon it o it and enjoy better taste and even greater health benefits. Health benefits of lemon water are ensured by vitamin C, B, riboflavin, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, protein and carbohydrates – all provided by lemons.
