Beside filtering your blood, burning calories (cold water), and keeping you hydrated, what effects does water have on weight maintenance and weight loss?

burning calories (cold water)??

I'm sure it's a myth.

I am a biology major. It is not a myth.

Yea but the amount of calories you burn is fractional or very low, no matter how cold the water is.

You burn about 18 calories for a glass of water at 32 degrees. Big deal.


Besides those OP drinking water helps regulate sodium levels.. the more sodium, the more water retention, the fatter you look. Drink more water to lower sodium levels, keep them low, and you will look leaner.

I have always wondered this... 1kcal = raising 1 L water 1 C, so if I drink a cold nalgene bottle (1 L) I burn ~ 25 - 40 calories?

I'd like to know what Alan Aragon or Emma-Leigh would have to say about water consumption. Particularly with regards to just how much is necessary or how much would be too much?

Probably not something that would be easy to apply a blanket answer to, though.

Water is not meant for weightloss... drinking a lot helps you feel full quicker I guess.

What are the benefits of drinking water.. hmm, how about staying alive and keeping your body functioning correctly? Every single cell, organ, and tissue in your body requires, and uses water throughout the day in order to function and keep you alive. I'd say that's a decent benefit.

I drink easy 180-200 fluid ounces a day and even that is a conservative estimate.

And also, for those of you who are saying that you don't burn any extra calories from drinking cold water vs. warm water, try taking some night classes in topics such as chemistry or intro biology.

There is no way you burn 18 per glass. Even if it was 18 per glass, that would add up quickly. Realistically you burn maybe 50-75 a day, and even that is a generous estimate.

Water fills you up, so that's one side of looking at its effects to weight loss.
Also, it is a better alternative to any other high calorie drinks, etc.

Yeah. Definitely. Been drinking a lot of water. Feels really good.
