“One negative effect of poor eating and drinking is a broken metabolism,” says Sarah Asay, director of nutrition and product development at BistroMD. “Metabolism dysfunction may be present as weight gain, increased blood pressure and cholesterol, less energy and trouble sleeping.”

To recharge, start by removing foods that trigger inflammation (sugar, alcohol, caffeine and processed meats) and replace them with an abundance of vegetables, nuts, wild meats and wild caught fish, and high quality fats like olive oil.

2. Drink up.

Make water — not coffee — your first drink in the morning. “While our bodies are asleep, we go seven or more hours without any hydration,” Asay says. “By providing your body with hydration upon waking, it refreshes and energizes our cells.”
