To all of you out there who think drinking 3 litres of hot water everyday helps in weightloss.......I am sorry to say but THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!
On the contrary, drinking ice cold water helps you burn calories.
You have an 8-ounce glass of ice-cold water in front of you. That’s about 240 grams of water.
When you drink the ice water, which is roughly 4 degrees Celsius, your body will expend calories to bring it to body temperature, which is about 37.5 degrees Celsius; that’s a difference of 33.5 degrees. To raise 1 gram of water 1 degree Celsius, 1 calorie is expended.
Raising 240 grams of water by 33.5 degrees Celsius will take 33.5 calories x 240 grams of water, which equals 8,040 little calories.
Dividing 8,040 by 1,000 gives us 8.04 food calories (kilocalories). Therefore, you’ll burn about 8 calories for each glass of iced calorie-free beverage you drink.
On the other hand, drinking hot water makes your body temparature go up and you start sweating, as its the body's mechanism to coool your body.....and when you sweat, your body flushes all the toxins out.
So, in short any supposed benefit of weight loss from drinking cold water or hot water would be so slight that it would be a complete waste of time and effort to even give it another second of thought. These are time loss tips, not weight loss tips.
If you want to lose weight, focus on your diet and your workout. If you want to burn your tongue, drink hot water.
And also remember that excess consumption of water can lead to water intoxication.
The above is information from authentic sources and also the views expressed by the head of nutrition and dietetics in one of the leading hospitals in Singapore!!
