Losing Weight With Ice Water

This Sparked Me!

Drink ice water,! The colder ice water makes your body warm up in order to digest the water! This speeds up your metabolism and burns calories! You still get the benefits of the water you would need to be drinking anyway, its cooler, and helps lose even more weight! I read this in a fitness article last night, also suggests 1 gallon of water a day (I'm not there yet) and 6 small meals a day to keep your body from starvation mode and storing fat:)

    I have a water chiller, and drink that all the time, so even if its not as cold as ice water, it is much colder than tap water, and tastier too. Is that an American gallon you mean? If I remember correctly, tho you have eight pints in a gallon, an American pint is 16 fluid oz,compared with eight British pints of 20 fluid oz. That would mean I need only 6.4 British (imperial) pints to drink the same. I think I could manage that. emoticon

    A friend of mines, a holistic doctor, told me about this practice and I have been doing it for about a month. I also drink a gallon of water a day and eat 6 small meals a day. I contribute my weight loss to utilizing these techniques, along with regular exercises.

    BJCLAYERS - maybe you're drinking your water too fast and giving yourself brainfreeze?

ALEXANI - Thanks for the tip!
