woman standing outside. morning routine. Des Moines MomWhat is your morning routine? The way you start your morning sets the tone for the rest of your day.
If you want to feel GOOD all day or if weight loss is your goal, I have 3 tips to help you do it.

3 things to add to your morning routine to feel great and lose weight

1. Drink water

Drinking water removes fat byproducts and improves your metabolism. Aim to drink at least 80 ounces a day. The first thing I do in the morning is to grab my water bottle to kick start my water intake. Bonus for putting your water bottle next to your bed for easy access!

2. Drink ACV

Drinking 1 to 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 1 to 2 times per day has been shown to help you lose weight and decrease your waistline. Just make sure you add it to 6 to 8 ounces of water so you don’t burn your esophagus. I find that drinking it at night even curbs my desire for late-night snacking. 

3. Eat a fiber-rich breakfast

Starting your day with not just any breakfast but a fiber-rich breakfast helps your body utilize calories more efficiently throughout the day preventing it from storing needless calories (skipping breakfast can throw off your circadian rhythm and interrupt your hormones).
Think oatmeal with fresh fruit or a fiber-rich smoothie. My go-to has blueberries, banana, 2 tbsp flaxmeal (fiber!), turmeric, peanut butter, cacao nibs, and unsweetened almond milk. It’s so yummy, full of fiber, and keeps me full for hours. 
Add these 3 simple tips to your morning routine and you’ll be well on your way to losing weight and feeling SO GOOD!
