hot water vs cold water


Quote  |  Reply

Hi everyone,

 

I have started to drink a glass of hot water with lime and a teaspoon of honey every morning prior to eating anything. 

it made me wonder if hot water is better than cold water??? or doesn't make a difference at all??

your opinons/knowledge is appreciated.

The difference is so small that in all practical terms it's the exact same thing.

 

Also - water with lime and/or honey won't make you lose weight.

 

If you drink it for the flavor that's ok, but I just want to make sure you aren't part of the people who believe that water with lemon/lime and/or honey magically leads to weight loss.

I have heard good things about hot/warm lemon (or lime I guess) for starting off the day especially with BMs. Besides that I have heard/seen, hot or cold lemon/lime water aids digestion but isn't a key to weight loss.

I worked as an rn for 10 years, i still am an RN just now i do marketing.  Anyway i came across so many patients, usually older people, who drank a cup of hot water in the morning to keep them regular.  Some with lemon, some with ginger, some without anything but always hot.

 

In terms of calories burned hot versus cold, or is it better for you.  I think any difference caused be temperature is nominal.

You should not use cold water or even hot water. You must use luke warm water. I tried this and it worked for me. It should be taken on an empty stomach early in the morning. After taking it, you should wait for atleast half an hour to one hour before taking any other food.

Usually, its good to do some exercises(atleast walking) after taking lemon and honey mixed in luke warm water.

Honey is an excellent natural home remedy for obesity and lowering of cholesterol levels. It mobilizes the extra deposited fat in the body allowing it to be utilized as energy for normal functions.

It works only with luke warm water.

Ummmm...why? Is there something magical about luke warm water?

Seriously, the temperature of the water has a negligible effect. Drink it at whatever temperature it tastes best. And, like the other posters said, it won't help you lose weight. But, if you like the taste, and it helps you to stay hydrated that's great.

I drink a cup of hot water first thing every morning to but I don't put lime in it.  Instead I put a Tea Bag in it.

Oops, double post

This is actually a very ancient technique in yoga to loose weight. I cannot tell what makes it different as I dont know the exact reason. But it does.  I am not telling this simply, I have experience with it. Not only me I know many of my friends who are still taking it and had good results. This is what many dietitians and doctors suggest in southern asia. This is like a medicine in Ayurveda.  It helps in detoxifing the body and removes excess water from the body.

But, no one would loose weight just because of taking this lemon and honey with luke warm water. Its really helps in maintaining your weight and helps in not gaining any fluid weight.

We should even do some excercise and should have good food habits too in addition to this. Then we can see the results. There are many scientific reasons behind this. As I am not a dietician, I am not able to tell you why it is good in loosing weight.

It is very helpful for people in diet, as it helps in mobilizing extra fat deposits which whould result in weight loss. Only taking this will not help in weight loss.

Please don't use honey if anyone is having diabetes.

I'm not sure if I should report this thread just based on all the ridiculous BS you just posted.

 

Also, learn to spell.

 

loose

lose

 

learn which one is which

I like that you used the word 'nominal'.  I want to use that word more often to sound sophisticated. 

"All systems are nominal".

tboon

did i sound sophisticated, really? i used the word poo in another post today, so it probably balances out ;)

I think any weight lose from this might be the result of a detoxification this triggers in the body. As for the water...from my understanding it is good to drink water at room temperature because its less of a sudden shock on your warm blooded body.

I drink cold water when I'm thirsty and warm water-i.e. tea or coffee when I won't be eating for a while.  I don't think the temperature makes any difference in terms of metabolism/weight loss.  I just have my own preferences.  Luke warm water sucks and I don't think you need to worry about water shocking your body unless it's electrified.

Oh yeah, if you watch your diet and exercise at the same time it really helps you lose weight.

Another helpful tip: sleeping with cotton socks on, preferably in bright colors. Provided you eat fewer calories than maintenance and exercise, I swear you'll lose weight too. It's absolutely thanks to the socks and the Power of Luke Warm (a cousin of Luke Skywalker, possibly?).

Dr.Oz had talked about this..warm liquids make your body feel full..and cold water helps burn calories by forcing your body to work to warm the water your drinking back up to your body temperature

Dr. Oz is full of dung.

That's the only explanation of hot/cold water I've ever heard...

It's not because a quack explains things that he's really a duck. It's a folk tale.
