Drinking water can be very boring sometimes so switch to fresh juice. Juice carrots, oranges, apples, or any other fruit or vegetable that you like at home. Skip sodas with food and have a glass of fresh juice instead to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Control your blood sugar

Avoid or at least cut back on simple carbohydrates such as white rice, white flour, refined sugar, etc.

If you can’t remember the long list, just remember that you’re better off avoiding any white foods such as white rice, bread, and pasta as well as foods that contain flour and sugar.

Concentrate on consuming foods that are rich in fiber such as vegetables, whole grains, and fruits.

Stay hydrated

Mild dehydration during a fast can cause a dry mouth, fatigue, headache, nausea, and thirst. That’s why it is vital for you to drink as much water as you can. Most health experts recommend following the 8*8 rule. It means that you have to drink 8 liters of water every day.

You get 30% of your fluids from food. Since you are not eating that, it’s best to compensate for it by drinking water. Otherwise, it’s easy to be dehydrated and make yourself sick to the stomach. Stay hydrated

Vacuum the Room

Bed bugs live in small groups inside your mattress, box spring, wooden boards of the bed, and bed frame where they can easily hide during the day and come out for blood meals at night. To get rid of the bed bugs, clean your room thoroughly. Take the mattress off your bed and pull it away from the wall. Vacuum the cardboards, bed frame, mattress, and every crease or hiding spot where bed bugs could be living. Their flattened body allows them to hide in the smallest spaces so make sure that you look at every square inch of your room that could be serving as their house. If the insect infestation has become a serious problem at your house, you might have to clean the whole house because the females could be laying eggs around the house.

Cut the Ivy

To let the ivy dry up on its own, you need to cut it from everywhere so that portions of it start dying. Killing at the roots is the best way to kill ivy but the ivy can still look fresh and last for weeks or months. Cutting every stem that you can get a hold of means that you ruin the plant and cut the food and water supply which dries the ivy in a week or two.

Caffeinated black or green tea

Stimulants like caffeine tend to increase the rate of calories you burn. In fact, research suggests that consuming tea with meals could also have the effect of fighting fat. Tea extract could potentially intervene with the absorption of carbs in your body when consumed simultaneously with a meal. While the increase in calorie burning may be marginal, there is the added benefit that you will have consumed a beverage with a much lower calorie count than other beverages like a soda.
