Correct daily rhythm of the body in eating matters
After awakening, our body needs water to lubricate and start working. The body needs water. The body does not care where to get water. Water can be obtained from drinking or eating. If we do not drink enough water in the morning, we really want to eat.
The body does not fully wake up in the morning, so the stomach also does not work well yet. Everything we eat in the morning, stays in excess fat, or stains somewhere else in the body. And that's all because we eat in the morning, not drink.
Water - warm or cold?
Our body is warm. Usually it is 98.6°F or 36.6°C. Inside the stomach is even warmer. How do you think - is there a shock to the stomach when something cold is poured into a warm stomach whose task is to process warm food?
