Subject: What to drink first in the morning?
 

I used to drink coffee as soon as I get up in the morning. Recently I have watched a TV programme in which it was told that, to stay fit drink one liter of water after you wake up. I wonder, how can a person drink that much of water in the morning. But, since it was a Yoga instructor programme they give that sort of advices only! Horrifying advices rather I say. So, my question is, what should I follow as my daily routing? one liter of water or a cup of hot coffee?

Len, that link must have hit you in "the right spot" LOL, it is funny though :D

Back to the topic, why not drink a L of coffee? it is 99.9% water and your problem is solved!

Speaking from experience, I've tried drinking 1L of water in the morning right after waking up and it's awful.  I tried it with a bit of lemon and honey.  I tried it cold, warm, and room temperature.  I tried it gulping it down right out of bed and I tried having several glasses while I cooked breakfast.  I think I made it about a week before I reverted to my old habits:

1 glass of milk with breakfast
1-2 Cappuccinos, or an entire French Press while I write

I get plenty of water at work.

I know that was meant to be funny.  I took a non-fasting blood test earlier this year and was asked if I had anything to eat or drink that day.  Mind you, it's hard enough to find my veins when I'm properly hydrated.  I said, "Just coffee."  The vampire responded, "Awww, don't do that before a blood test, it constricts your veins."  But I had to wake up to find this new lab so early.

I've tried in the past to start the day with 1L of water.  I end up having to go to the bathroom every hour all day.  Not for everyone.  Who says YMMV?  I agree.

Don't you get a "sour" outlook on the day from the lemonaid? Just wondering :D
