Read on to know if it is beneficial to drink hot or cold water to lose body weight!
Water is one of the freely available beverages that have various health benefits. Water not only hydrates our body but this calorie-free beverage is also beneficial to boost our metabolism, which helps us to lose excess body weight. Read on to know which type of water, hot or cold, will actively help in weight loss.
Drinking ample water every day helps to flush out the toxins from our body and if it is consumed before a meal it can also help to reduce the appetite, which can indirectly help in weight loss.
It has been studied that warm water boosts our metabolism by increasing the core body temperature that can effectively result in weight loss if consumed early morning every day on an empty stomach. Experts also recommend consuming warm water as it helps to remove sticky content, stuck on the linings, of our digestive tract that works like a detox agent and help us to feel light.
While it was initially studied that drinking cold water helps to burn more calories, which was calculated to be around 8 calories per glass, to warm up the water that has been consumed to the body temperature. But, this number has turned out to be almost negligible when calculated for the total number of glasses consumed in a day.
So, in spite of depending upon hot or cold water, it is suggested that you must rather consume enough water (preferably hot) to flush out the toxins from the body and keep yourself hydrated for effective weight loss. On average, one must consume 8 glasses of water every day, the number may change depending upon your activity level and body weight.
