Hello. i have been told by alot of people that drinking cold water makes one gain weight. To put some truth to this, my cousin just emailed a month ago that when she stopped drinking cold water, she lost 10 pounds in just 2 weeks. my dad is always telling me that drinking cold water very early in the morning is not healthy. is just that i feel warm always and during the summer season, i feel like my throat is always parch and that only cold water can quench thirst... what is your opinion? is there a scientific explanation/basis for this theory?
