Oatmeal Water

Boil some oats in water or make very watery oatmeal and drink or eat it. There is evidence that oatmeal helps with blood chemistry and may have some slimming properties. The extra water won’t hurt either.

Vegetable Juice

If you can juice your own carrot, cucumber, and/or celery, you can make a very healthy empty stomach drink. You’ll feel full, get easily accessed nutrients with low calorie content, and drink a full glass of water.

All this makes for worthwhile to try this. Premade low sodium vegetable juice made be almost as good for you, although some of the nutritional value is lost in the shelf life.
