Does Drinking Ice Water Burn Calories?

As many weight loss enthusiasts look for the Holy Grail for shedding pounds, they often ask does drinking ice water burn calories? The answer is Yes!  Drinking ice water will burn more calories than drinking luke warm or even cool water, but it is not the way to lose weight.

Good, old-fashioned hard work and determination will help you lose weight.  Yet, there are simple tips that can be followed in order to help you along the way.  One of those tips is to drink ice water instead of regular tap water.

When you consume ice water, the water is cold.  This is a fairly obvious fact.  However, when you consume ice water, your body requires more energy to warm it up and process it through the system.  This entire warming process requires energy and as a result, burns more calories than if the water were already warmed.

A person who consumes ice water rather than tap, burns on average, an additional 100-200 calories per day.  While this may not seem like a lot of calories, it can certainly help an already existing healthy diet and exercise routine.  Why not give yourself any bonus you can when it comes to shedding weight.

Drinking ice water does burn more calories and should be implemented during the day, or consumed at every meal or snack.
