Some say if you drink cold water it makes your tummy bigger. Is this true? If it is, is there a scientific explanation to this?

Although most of us take it for granted, water may be the only true "magic potion" for permanent weight loss instead of gaining more weight Water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize stored fat. Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits. This can be explained with the physiology of kidneys. In fact, drinking water is essential to weight loss. Drinking water preferably cold is even encouraged - it's absorbed into the system more quickly than warm water. And some evidence suggests that drinking cold water can actually help burn calories.

You are right and if one drinks at least 2 glasses of water before he eats he woun't be able to eat much. And its not good to drink immediately after the meal because it spreads your tummy and you feel like you have more space in it and you keep eating.

I don't think so, water doesn't have calories. It can make your tummy full for a while and it can look like a balloon but just for a while because eventually you'll need to pee...hehe
