  • Does drinking ice water actually burn calories?

    Best answer: Drinking cold water absorbs heat from the body and it causes the body to expend energy due to muscle contractions needed to swallow the water, and peristaltic contractions triggered by an increased volume of fluid in the stomach and small intestines.

    Best answer: Drinking cold water absorbs heat from the body and it causes the body to expend energy due to muscle contractions needed to swallow the water, and peristaltic contractions triggered by an increased volume of fluid in the stomach and small intestines.

    There is a common fallacy that the cold temperature causes a person to burn calories to compensate for the heat loss. Its amazing how many information sites have incorrect information about this. Note that none of those sites explain how the body produces more heat. Basal metabolism typically produces excess body heat, and drinking cold water merely helps to quickly dissipate the excess heat. You would have to drink enough cold water at a fast enough rate to lower core body temperature. Maybe you could do this by gulping a 12 oz glass of ice water all at once. For the most part, cold water only causes the body to burn more calories if drinking the water causes a person to shiver.

  • I feel fat still?

    Ok heres my story: I was 215 in September. Being a 17 year old (most in my school are not fat at all) I felt terrible, I think I looked terrible too.

    Ok heres my story: I was 215 in September. Being a 17 year old (most in my school are not fat at all) I felt terrible, I think I looked terrible too. I mean, I realize there were people worse off than me, but I still felt like I was some kind of obese neckbeard (even though I didn't grow one, but you get the point if you've ever been to reddit). Eventually I lost that weight. It was mostly dieting, but there was exercising involved but I guess it wasn't as intense as say, a bodybuilder would want me doing. Which I don't plan on being a bodybuilder just to get that point across... Anyway, I got down to 175. I still feel fat but not as fat if that makes sense. I feel skinny fat, but on other days I feel like I'm this obese weirdo again. My gut doesn't hang over my belt or anything like that, I'm just wondering if I didn't lose bf or not?

    Hello I am a 16 nearly 17 year old girl, who is 5'6" and 210 pounds. I'm pretty sure I'm considered obese at this point..

    Hello I am a 16 nearly 17 year old girl, who is 5'6" and 210 pounds. I'm pretty sure I'm considered obese at this point.. I've been trying to lose weight since 2016 and have failed at each attempt. Everyone seems to have their own opinion on what foods to eat and not to eat. Like oil, bread, meat, dairy, etc. I'm so scattered I don't know who to believe anymore. The main thing I'm trying to figure out is should I eat on a schedule and make sure I eat enough even if I'm not hungry, or should I listen to when my body is actually hungry? I'd really like to listen to my body but I'm afraid I'm not getting all the proper nutrients and stuff if I eat only when my stomach is growling. I seem to only feel hungry about once or maybe twice a day. I'm scared of getting low blood sugar too if I don't eat several times a day. Is it okay to only eat a meal or two a day?? Or should I force in the fruits and veggies? Like what if I only eat a few bites of chicken and fruit when I'm actually hungry, or should I eat a certain amount of food daily? Thanks.

  • Is drinking a gallon of water a day healthy??

    I am trying to lose some inches from my waist. I understand that I have to workout to, but I read online that drinking a gallon of water a day can help out also. Some people say it’s healthy and some say it’s harmful. Is it really helpful or will it harm me ?

    I’m a 16 year old girl, 5’2 and weight between 130-140. I hate everything about my body. I want to lose around 30 pounds and I’ve been trying to eat less than 700 calories a day but I always end up snacking on things around 12am and then hate myself even more. I ignore whenever my stomach growls and just drink water and I guess that’s considered starving myself but I do eat so I’m not sure how. I’ve had my mom tell me I don’t need to lose weight but she’s my mom of course she’s going to say that but I just genuinely hate myself and I feel gross in this body. How can I follow my diet and keep the weight off?
