Across the internet and on many dieting website’s there is a common myth that drinking iced water helps you to loose weight. Let’s get this point cleared up once and for all. Drinking Iced water does not help the body to loose weight in a measurable way. Whether you drink water at room temperature, or chilled will have no effect on how much weight you loose.
Technically It’s True
Okay yes technically it have been proven to help you loose weight, but the difference in calorie burn is marginal. The idea behind drinking iced water suggests that your bodies metabolic rate will increase as the body try’s to counteract the cold water and increase its internal temperature back to normal levels.
It’s a nice idea, but when you start to research and measure the levels of calorie burn, actually research shows that if you drink one litre of chilled water, the calorie burn effect is really only 20 calories.
You would do much better to swap out that can of Diet Coke that contains around 300 calories for a glass or water rather than worry about drinking chilled water.
