I Drank 16 Ounces Of Water Every Morning For A Week—Here’s What I Learned

If you took a shot (of Poland Spring) every time a celebrity said they start their day by drinking lemon water—well, let’s just say you’d be well hydrated. Me, on the other hand? Can’t touch H20 (or talk to anyone, really) until I’ve slurped down my almond milk latte.

I know my AM beverage game isn’t the healthiest. Health pros (and Cameron Diaz, who chugs a liter when she first wakes up) seem to agree you should sip on good old water before anything else. Maybe I should take the hint.

So I asked an expert for the truth about morning hydration—then I vowed to try it out for myself to see if I’d truly feel the benefits. (Sorry, coffee.)
