Drinking Water Ice Can Burn Calories

No need to avoid drinking ice water for fear of fat. Ice water actually help burn calories.

          "Do not be too often drinking ice water, then his stomach distended."


          So far, we'll often hear comments like that. There are still many people who think that drinking ice water can cause obesity. Apparently, it's just a myth.

           According to scientific studies, drinking ice water can actually help speed up calorie burning during metabolism.

Is this correct? This certainly undermine the stigma that has been ingrained in the minds of many people. So far, people avoid drinking cold water or water with ice cubes to avoid obesity myth.

The explanation was very simple. When drinking ice water temperatures are much below the normal human temperature is 37 degrees Celsius, our bodies have to do penyesuaikan. That equalizes temperature with ice water that enters the body becomes the same as our body temperature.

We estimate only the temperature of the water we drink ice is zero degrees celsius. It takes one calorie for every increasing temperature of ice water one degree celsius. If we drink 0.5 liters (16 ounces) of water, there are 473.18 grams of water that must be equalized temperature.

So, by drinking half a liter (16 ounces) ice water a day, your body must raise the temperature of 473.18 grams of water from zero degrees to 37 degrees Celsius. In doing so, the body must burn 17.5 calories.

If you follow the advice to drink eight glasses of water a day, or about two liters, more calories are burned. Two liters (64 ounces) of water equal to 1892.72 grams. Raise the temperature of water will burn 70 calories.

But the number of calories burned as much as it has not been significant if you have to burn 2,000 calorie diet. Of course you still have to balance it with regular exercise.
