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.

Everyone, myself included lug around their water bottles, and I rarely see anyone take a sip. So while at work, I bought myself a nice stemmed glass, and pour my ice cold water into the glass. Makes me feel like drinking it and seems much more manageable. Being cold adds to calorie loss!
Ice cold water makes your body heat it up, burning more calories than drinking room temp water!
Drink cold water, it BURNS CALORIES! Crazy, right? Well "studies show" that your body takes longer to warm up cold water and it burns calories in doing so(: Drinking room-temp water will fill you up, but it doesn't burn the calories like the icy cold refreshing aqua!9
