  • it's possible you burn more cals. just like in the summer if you drink hot things your body has to work harder to cool you off... although ice water is yummy and i still drink coffee in the summer....but really i think were talking maybe one calorie... if that... not really worth the discompfort if its not something you already enjoy - by JACQUILLI
  • I cannot drink cold beverages....what it does to me is similar to being in a nice warm shower, and having someone throw a glass of ice water at you. Your body cringes. Well, your stomach, at an average temperature of 98+ degrees, does the same thing when you give it iced beverages. It cringes and refuses to digest the food the way it should, so you don't get the nutrients you're supposed to. Yes, it might make the system work harder, but I'm not at all sure it's a healthy thing to do. - by WOMYN42
  • I also read an article that says you should drink water at room temperature. - by HELENA260
