Nutritional therapist Aislinn Cambridge has claimed there’s one drink we should all be drinking as soon as we wake up in the morning – and says it works like ‘magic’
We all know the feeling of having to drag ourselves out of bed in the morning because it’s too early and we just don’t have the energy to face the day yet.
But according to a nutritionistthere are things we can do to help our bodies cope with morning fatigue, as well as to ensure that our mood is uplifted, sleep is improved and energy is boosted.
She said RSVP live While we all know the benefits of drinking plenty of water, you can feel even better by adding a squeeze of lemon to a cup of warm water.

The expert said: “There’s one thing everyone should do from the minute they wake up in the morning and that’s drink water, it hydrates your body and lowers arterial pressure.
“If you want to have energy and feel good, a cup of hot water with half a lemon squeezed in it. It’s like magic.”
But it’s not just lemon water that can help you feel ready to start the day, as Aislinn also said that taking care of yourself before bed can help you feel better in the morning.
The nutritionist said you leave at least three hours between your last big meal and when you fall asleep so your body can fully digest your food before you rest for the night.
She added: “If you eat a meal and try to sleep an hour or two later it will wreak havoc because your body can’t digest, rest and recover, the two cancel each other out.
“Your sleep and digestion will be affected and when combined will have a big impact on your mood. I recommend leaving at least three to four hours after a large meal.”
And Aislinn’s biggest tip is to stay away from artificial sweeteners whenever you crave sugar, because these can actually have a worse effect on your body than natural sugars.
She explained: “Some people think it’s better to choose ‘sugar-free’ options when trying to eat healthy, but they’re actually worse. So-called ‘diet’ drinks contain an ingredient called aspartame that our bodies don’t have. .know how to treat and it has a negative effect on our gut and is much more harmful, inflammatory and corrosive than actual sugar.”
