I posted about the benefits of lemon water the other day and it seems like almost everything I am reading at the moment gives a big mention to good old lemon water these days. Dr. Gillian McKeith, Dr Nish Joshi, the Woman’s Day food coach (I stumbled upon it on the web, honest), Claudia Schiffer and Ashley Judd and a whole load of those other diet experts/celebrities have been banging on about it, and it has been given more than a couple of shout outs on telly shows such as The Biggest Loser and Celebrity Fit Club.
It is crazy – it’s all lemon water this, lemon water that, lemon water the other – but what about lime?
Lemon water is obviously a good alkaline start to your day and helps you to clear out your digestive system and invigorate your body first thing. But if you are having it every day then you could easily get bored of it. And once you get bored you might start to forget and that is obviously a bad thing. Indeed.
So why not try lime? Limes are just as alkalising as lemons and give a totally different taste. In fact, I actually prefer limes, they give it a kind of tropical cocktail-y kind of spin.
So there, that is my top tip of the day: have lime water once in a while! Variety is the spice of life after all!
