Drinking cold water is not bad for you according to Dan Jaris, Fitness Health Coach. In fact, ice-cold water may slightly boost your metabolism and aid in weight loss.
The body burns calories as it warms the cold water to body temperature. This process causes the body to eliminate a very small amount of body fat.
Jaris encourages the replacement of sugar-laden products, such as soda, with water to promote weight loss. Drinking cold water can suppress the appetite and lead to a healthier lifestyle. The idea that cold water can cause fat in your stomach to congeal is false.
