    I chug two 16 oz glasses of water first thing in the morning because I am thirsty. I don't think it has any special powers.

    I usually drink that water and then go downstairs and drink 8 oz of milk plus 24 oz of coffee. Then if I workout I drink another 32ish oz. of water. All before 8 a.m.

    Staying hydrated is a good thing - but no way does it boost your metabolism by 24%. Drinking lots of water makes me pee.....is that the "clearing out" you're referencing?

    https://www.davidwolfe.com/drink-water-first-morning-5-reasons/

    These were two sources that i read about boosting metabolism. I am not entirely sure if accurate lol. Also it clears both #1 and #2 completely you will have to go but not in a bad way like the runs or something. It will just remove excess sludge in the colon. Sorry if thats TMI.

    David Wolfe is a con man and a quack. Sorry, drinking a litre of water does not boost your metabolism.

    I'd be willing to be a test dummy for this, I can'gt promise the full litre but I'll try my best in the name of science

    I usually drink 32 ounces firs thing in the morning. I am dehydrated after not drinking all night, and it helps to wake me up. Then I have coffee.

    I think the water is a very healthy habit for numerous reasons, though I seriously doubt it has any significant impact on metabolism (there is a very slight temporary impact...that is true...but not enough to make a difference in weight loss)

    Why would you think "stylecraze" is a good scientific source?

    Pro tip: There are no secrets. Just CICO.

    To put it nicely, David "Avocado" Wolfe is a nutbag. Definitely not a source you want to consider valid for any kind of information pertaining to health, nutrition....or, well, just about anything else either.

    And no - a liter of water in the morning won't do anything but make you have to pee a lot. "Cleansing" is a scam and water doesn't increase your metabolism.

    I'd puke. No. I get plenty of water from my morning coffees.

    It's weird that both articles reference it boosting your metabolism by 24% without any citation (very specifically not 23% or 25%). That should be a red flag for you right there. If that were true or backed up by any kind of research, it shouldn't be a problem for either article to point to some kind of source for the claim.

    OMG I love your profile pic. =)

    David Wolfe also says that chocolate "lines up planetarily with the sun" and that it's "an octave of sun energy" and that it's the male energy that comes down out of the center of the sun. So, yeah. Not a reliable source of information.

    He also thinks the earth is flat. I think his "water" may have some added ingredients....they perhaps increase metabolism and help with weight loss.

    David Wolfe who thinks gravity if toxic and solar panels are draining the sun? I wouldn't trust a word from his mouth.

    So what this is essentially saying is that the sun will turn off like a light switch if we take too much of it's energy ?? I'm having trouble wrapping my head around this one...

    I like a glass of water in the morning, but 1 litre of it first thing in the morning just makes me cringe. I have a hard enough time trying to down 500 ml in the morning before an ultrasound ... drinking that much water while I'm getting ready to dash out the door to work is hard enough, but 15 minutes later ... in the middle of my bus ride ... ouch.

    Water intake should be spread out throughout the day so drinking 1 liter in the morning might not be too beneficial at all. Your kidneys can handle too much water in one sitting so that's something you should watch out for. Also, water doesn't really have too much of an impact on metabolism.
