I used to drink cold water a lot before. But I read somewhere that drinking cold water is fattening. Don't ask me anymore the theory behind... it needs a different discussion for that. Anyway, it also said that drinking hot or warm water is good for slimming down. So I tried it. And I enjoy it. I drink hot water when I get up in the morning and before I sleep. It helps me in my digestion. (I realized that because I am having a hard time on that aspect too.) So is it hot or cold water for you?

There is nothing fattening about cold water except when you drink it on top of a greasy meal. Then it solidates the fat and grease of the food you eat slowing digestion. In fact drinking really cold water throughout the day does make the body burn MORE calories because the body has to work really hard to warm it to the body temp that is normal for you. Warm water aids in the digestion by warming the greases and fats quicker and allowing the digestion process to digest easily. Hot water relaxes those muscles in the digestive track alot like a heating pad relaxes muscles. So happy drinking!! Good Luck!

I've heard that drinking warm or hot water is better, but I just can't do it. I'm not really fond of the taste of most water anyway, but if it's really cold I can drink it. The only way I drink warm water is by making tea out of it, at which point it's no longer really just water. :P

Hot water is really cool. (LOL) I'm not trying to confuse anyone (LOL) you know what I'm saying. I tried that before and somehow, I reduced a little weight.
