- Start your day with a glass of lemon water. I add the juice of half a squeezed lemon to a glass of warm water. You can do this directly with your hands. It’s a good finger workout and the washing up is kept to a minimum. The seeds usually sink to the bottom. Alternatively, you can use a lemon squeezer made of glass, stainless steel or porcelain. In any case, it’s better not to use a plastic one. Why? I’ll explain in phase 7.
- Drink this directly in the morning, if it agrees with you. You can vary the acidity. Too acidic is – in the long run – not good for your teeth. If in doubt, ask your dentist if you can do this, or dilute it with more water if you know you have to be careful.
- In any case, to protect your teeth, it is better to drink the lemon water quickly and then take another sip of still water afterwards.
- If you use boiling hot water, the vitamin C will be destroyed. That’s why I fill my glass with still water from the tap in the morning and add a dash of hot water, only then do I add the lemon juice. Alternatively, you can let the boiling water cool down and when it is no longer so hot, add the lemon water.
