How ice cold water helps you loose weight.
Drinking ice cold water all day everyday; ice cold water helps burn calories, about 35 calories per 8ozs. How is that possible you ask? Well your body will have to warm up the water before it can process it and digest it, so that’s burning calories. The colder the water the more calories you burn. It is also good to drink 8ozs of ice cold water 30 minutes before any meal. Why? Well it helps jump start your metabolism because your body was working to warm up the water and digesting it. I drink about 8-10 glasses a day. It also makes you pee a lot so it is helping detox your body of all the bad sugars/fats.
Water is the number one most important thing to address when it comes to losing weight, because water actually increases your body’s ability to metabolize fat. Here’s how:

Your liver is the organ that deals with metabolizing fat, and your kidneys deal with straining the toxins out of the water you drink. However, if you do not have enough water in your system already, your kidneys will not be able to do their job. In this case, your body shifts some of the work over to your liver.

So drinking water will not only helps you loose weight it also helps your body dispose of the bad sugars and fat. So instead of grabbing for that soda drink some water.
