Secrets of Success

Room-Temp Water



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. - by UNIQUE55
