Room-Temp Water


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Of all of the tips I learned while losing weight, drinking my water at room temp was the most life-changing for me! I had been sipping my cold water all day until I discovered (learned from a seasoned dieter) that if I drink my water at room temp I could gulp it down in seconds. 2 litres of water has been a minimum of water intake for me since then...for the last 2 years...and it is EASY.

    I have always drink my water at room temp, it is much better for you body and helps the digestion process. When I go to a restaurant, I remove the ice from my water glass. Ice makes me cold and I hate being cold!!!!!! Cold hurts my body all the way around.

    Other than avoiding "brain freeze," I don't understand why drinking water room-temp makes a difference. Thanks!

    I have noticed this as well! Also, I would rather drink out of a water bottle with the sip cap (don't know what to call it). emoticon

    I think I read that drinking ice water burns more calories, but if we don't drink it because it is too cold, that doesn't apply! I like this secret!

    You are right! I will try drinking a glass of room temp water before every meal. Thanks for sharing!

    I've never heard this before, and at times just the thought of drinking water makes me cringe. I am definitely going to try this out!
